Callus Tear Problem


#1

So last Sunday I deadlift a very heavy triple, when I tried to go for the forth rep a callus on my hand tore therefore weakend my grip. 2 days later I will be deadlifting heavy again but my callus didn' t heal yet so I know that If I go for a heavy deadlift It will tear again.
What should I do?

I would just wrap it up with athletic tape and wear straps. Maybe some gauze underneath for a bit of cushion and if it’s bleeding.

Simple. Use straps, or better yet, don’t pull heavy. Do a box squat at the same weight or something.

If you don’t let your callous repair itself, it’ll keep getting worse.

Moving forward keep your calluses shaved down…

That too. Also sanding them can work. Pumice stones, sandpaper, emery boards - all of them work.
