Hahahaha! I know..right? I've googled how to manage torn calluses, etc. All I have been able to find is info. on preventative maintenance. Trust me, I will take head to that advice. In the meantime, what can I do to possibly accelerate healing?

just let it go. it happens. you could take it like a spartan and just keep pluggin along, put some superglue in there and go for it....or just wait till it heals.

Coming from a rowers perspective, we have calluses 9 months of the year that look like that. We mostly just deal with it and actually become excited when we get them because it means no more blisters. I've heard that some of the old timers used to urinate on their hands and it created the calluses faster...I'm not sure how much validity is behind that though.

Mine look like that. If I get a tear I remove the flap of skin and clean it out with saline.

Try contrast baths. You can search the threads for them in the injury threads, or you can go to www.beastskills.com and look it up there. Also, use some NEW SKIN, put that on there while you are working out, works like a champ. Or as always, you can just deal with it, and tough it out. Some days thats easier than others.

I take off my calluses in the bathroom about 5 mins into a hot shower -- just scratch off a few layers of skin when it comes off easily.

If I rip, cut it off and then salt the wound for a bit. Then moisturize so it doesn't crack. Then I can do stuff (intense hand stuff like gymnastics) the next day. :-)

Solution: Tape hands with athletic tape and keep doing my thing. For preventative maintenance I bought a filer for my calluses to keep them in check, and athletic tape to put around blisters before they pop and leave my hands looking like that again!
