Coach Shannon's Tips for Crossfit Hand Care

After a few months of CrossFit, you might begin to see some changes in the palms of your hands. Holding onto the bar for pull-ups and toes to bar or lifting a barbell will start to roughen up the skin on your palms. Over time you will begin to develop calluses under your fingers and sometimes in the middle of your palm and around your thumbs.

Calluses are good, but they need to be maintained to avoid the dreaded rip or tear that is inevitable if you don’t regularly take care of your hands. Tearing is extremely annoying and interferes with a lot of daily activities (not to mention CrossFit workouts the next few days!), so it’s best to avoid it if at all possible.
