So you’ve been doing CrossFit for a while and you are loving it. You’ve mastered your barbell cycling, pull-ups, toes to bar, etc (or at least learned how to do them) and you are feeling like a champ. However, your hands may beg to differ and you will start to notice some callus development. While I am very proud of my clients when they start developing tougher hands, I also understand that it can be a nuisance if they are not properly taken care of.
Yes, you want to have tough hands so that they are not constantly ripping, but you can go to the other extreme of having huge calluses that pinch and rip whenever you hang from the bar or do work with the barbell. This is where we have to get creative with hand maintenance. Below is a great article that might help you keep your hands “rip free”
