How often is too often to tell you to take care of your hands? We use them every day in and out of the gym, and I would like to think they are a priority to everyone… but Angie, “AMRP Angie” and Murph will all do a number to your hands if you haven’t kept up with your daily care. So how is it done?
1. Preparation – what you can do before coming into the gym
2. During a WOD – how to keep an existing blister/rip from getting worse
3. Maintenance – what you should be doing every day
Grab a pumice stone and some lotion. Use the pumice stone after you shower when your skin is soft to keep the sharp edges on your hands at bay and follow up with some lotion to keep your paws from drying out.
