So the other day a friend and myself were throwing a keg and a rock on the beach, we did a 1/4 mile each with each object.
Well when it was over I realized that the keg had ripped off two calluses on my hand. It?s pretty deep too.
Anyway, I’ve been trying to keep it clean and it hasn’t hampered my lifts too much but is hampering a little as I have it bandaged and can?t grip as hard.
Has anyone else done this before? How long did it take you to heal? Should I just wear a glove till it does heal?
More Nasty pic?s below, look carefully you can see my beloved keg.
Dude, I tear callouses twice as big as those bitches in just about every strongman contest I do, and guess what, It always happens when I got more gripping events to do. They aren’t a big deal.
Some people super glue the skin back on if it’s still hanging. I cut all the excessive and swollen skin and poor some iodine or another disinfectant that keeps it moist so it doesn’t dry up and mess up my contest (if it dries I can’t close my hands properly). After the contest, I put polysporin on it 3-5 times a day. Often I compete the following week-end and train in between them.
