Mid workout at San Jose

Do you have 'Man' Hands?

How many of you have ever ripped your hands in a CrossFit workout? My guess is almost all of you have. Though it might seem really hard-core and make it feel like you were extra intense, in reality having your hands tear is a huge nuisance! It can set you back days or even weeks from pull-ups, muscle ups, and lifting. AND who wants that unbelievable sting you get in the shower after a callus tears??

Many people think that spending time to take care of calluses and shave them down results in soft “weak” hands and decreased “manhood.” In reality, though, it’s quite the opposite effect! The less care you take with your hands, the more your chances of tearing increase, therefore decreasing the amount you can train and become a better athlete!

Your chances of tearing increase a lot if you’ve got either soft hands with little or no callus build-up (which can be fixed with a week or two in the gym) or too much callus buildup that makes bumps or ridges on the surface of your hands (these are the ones we always show off to each other).

You need the happy medium—deep but smooth and supple calluses that protect the hands but remain intact when working.

Here is an awesome article from the CrossFit Journal vault on treating any current rips and preventing future tears. Say goodbye to Instagram pictures and posts of your bloody, mangled palms! It’s time to move on people.
