So after a three hour session at the gym yesterday the unthinkable happened... my hand fell off. Well a pretty good section of the skin on my pinkie had peeled off, leaving a painful skin flap in its wake; this was the end of my session because chalk wasn't cutting it. If I had some surgical tape I would have just taped it off and sucked it up but I digress.
I have heard of people using tape and superglue to cover damaged skin but I think injury prevention is the way to go and will serve me better in the long run. So I have decided to use men's vasoline face and body lotion as much as possible to see if it helps keep the skin, on my hands, from peeling and becoming even more damaged.
So the question I ask is what do you do to prevent skin injuries on your hands and, in the case the do become damaged, what do you do once they are destroyed from messing with overhangs all day?
