Skin Gainz: Does Anyone Not Secretly Love Getting Calluses?

Unfortunately my two biggest deadlift calluses, Dave and Sue, flaked off within the last couple of weeks so I’m pleased to see a fitting candidate to replace Sue is rising on my right hand, like Shawn Yates taking over from Ronnie Coleman.

Anyone else name theirs?

No I don’t like them. They hurt when I do hook grip or carries

I have a bad habit of constantly picking at them and tearing them off. It’s like the lifters version of nail biting.

I’m really not “getting” many calluses, I have had the same ones for years. I use a pumice stone every once in a while to knock down the roughness so they dont bother my grip. Side note - I SMH seeing 110lb dudes rocking gloves while using machines, never really understood that

Still having trouble processing that he previously gave a male name to something that contacts his own genitals on a frequent basis for purposes of general hygiene and self pleasure.

Are you prejudiced? I feel you could benefit from our diversity training program.

Anyway I’ve pretty much decided it’s going to be Arnold. What else?

I mean, I call my girlfriend’s vagina George, so…

I don’t like them. I kinda enjoy biting them off though.
