We've done a couple of workouts recently that have really taxed our grip. If you ended up with a torn callus or blister, you're not alone! The hot and humid weather also doesn't help where our grip is concerned.
Hand care isn't the most interesting topic, but it's definitely an important one. As CrossFitters we have all had run-ins with calluses, blisters and cuts on your hands. There are a couple tricks that you can use to make sure that minor injuries to your hands don't prevent you from working out. In addition to keeping your hands clean it helps to use hand balm (not hand lotion), exfoliating calluses with an Emory board or pumice stone and taping properly if you get a blister. I found this video on taking care of your hands by Donny Shankle - he is a total badass, if he takes care of his hands so should you!
