Shedding

As mentioned in my post “Aggression”, I’m currently doing maximal lifts. And primarily focusing on grip strength. I’ve got some great caluses (spell check?), but lately they have been shedding? They don’t come completely off. But the outer layer starts to peel. Once it’s off they caluses is still in tact and just as hard?

You’re just wearing them down. If they’re not tearing loose and bleeding, then it’s probably fine.

You can prevent this by grinding down the nastiness with a pumice stone in the shower.
