My hands were fried from yesterdays DL's - the bar had some pretty aggressive curling. Don't really want to wear gloves, and I just keep ripping the old calluses off when I DL. Any suggestions?

Don't laugh Dan!!

Krazy Glue

Sounds stupid, works great. Hospitals often use something similar to patch up minor cuts, particularly on children, rather than stitches.
I hae used it regularly over the years, as have many climbers and others, give it a try!!!

athletic tape until it heals. Use 1" tape and do a complete wrap around the hand. If that doesn't cover the tears, rip the 1" in half lengthwise and wrap the piece from the side -- ah heck just look at the pic... below

then wrap the 1" tape completely around your hand twice.

You could just try using some lotion.

File down calluses so they are flat. You could get a file for that in a drug store. Prevention is better than cure.

Daniel,
Be ready for the fire when you use the glue. It hurts like hell.

Might be a good idea to make sure the glue is dry before you grab the bar too.
That could make for a very embarassing 911 call. I could just see myself carrying my loaded bar upstairs, knocking the phone over and dialing with my tongue. :lame:

I am so bookmarking this thread...I have major callous/blisters happening due to pull ups. I bought some gloves but forgot to put them on for Cindy last night!

Steve, we recently had to take my 4 yr old to the emergency room where they glued his 1" cut over the eye. The NP was very ademant about not calling it SUPER GLUE so that he wouldn't go glueing his own cuts together! I see she was right but that danger doesn't go away with time! LOL

Yeah, it's more job security if they don't call it "Super Glue". But that's basically what it is...

Gloves, schmoves. If Veronica doesn't need gloves, neither do you.

An enhancement to Veronica's method of taping is to use a piece of tape so long that it goes to the wrist. Take 12-16" of athletic tape and poke a hole in the middle. Put finger through the hole, then wrap the wrist to secure the tag ends. Lasts long time.
