Best Kept Secret for Hand Care

We use our hands a lot.  A whole lot.  Proper hand care is essential to a successful gym session.  And barbells and pull up rigs are rather unforgiving.  If you want to keep your hands soft, you probably want to find another hobby that doesn’t involve either of them.  If you are after optimal fitness, however, I’m guessing that these two pieces of equipment are essential for your regime.  In that case, please watch the short video about hand care and how to take care of your callouses.  You do need them, you know. Just not super thick ones.  (see pics) It's one thing to give it all you got in a competition, but something else when you've neglected them in training.  Keep them filed, keep them useful!

  Let’s face it:

Ripped hands suck!
