So I was doing rack pulls today and managed to rip a large chunk out of my left hand. A callous just ripped off (and the surrounding skin around it), blood all over the bar, the platform, etc. This was the first time I had used chalk (I don’t use straps ever) and was wondering if anyone else has this problem of skin ripping.
I’ve never been a fan of gloves as I like to feel the bar in my hands. Any suggestions as to preventing it in the future? I found it slightly odd that this happen as I have years of callouses built up due to rowing (the olympic sport).
