For athletes who push limits – in CrossFit, climbing, gymnastics, Ninja Warriors and other extreme sports – your hands are your tools. If you're boasting about your calluses but letting them go unchecked, it's time for a change. True callus care goes beyond just enduring; it's about understanding and acting.
Climbers, CrossFitters, Ninja Warriors, rowers, gymnasts and all you hardcore athletes out there... If you've ever felt the tug of a callus about to rip, or the sting after it does during a workout, this is for you.Those glorious calluses on your hands are indeed badges of your hard work.
The skin on your heels is naturally thick, serving as a protective shield against the daily grind. But it doesn't have to be dry and crusty! Imagine for a moment that the skin on your heels wasn't naturally thick.
Most people type "best callus remover" into search engines, hoping for a quick fix. But if you're an extreme athlete—whether you're into Crossfit, gymnastics, Ninja Warrior challenges, climbing, or Olympic lifting—you know that calluses on hands are more than just rough patches of skin.
Often we think of calluses as “bad” or “unwanted.” However, calluses are a protection mechanism for our hands! Eliminating calluses entirely can cause a host of compilations, yet thick calluses can be burdensome, eventually leading to ripping and tearing. You need calluses present to an extent; the key is to keep calluses on hands at a healthy level.
Do a quick search about calluses. No, really. Do it. Everything you’ll read tells you how to remove them or stop making them. And we all get why. Calluses, left to themselves, are gross. They’re rough. They’re dry. They scratch and crack and tear.
Everyone talks about “callus cures” and “callus treatment” like calluses are a disease you need to eradicate. But that doesn’t feel right, because you know why they’re there. They come from passionate hobbies, athletic goal-reaching, daily hands-on work, and outdoor exploring.
If you’re like me, you’ve tried every potential solution to cracked, dry heels under the sun. Because you like the sun, and you like your heels and you hate that your heels in sunny sandal weather look nasty. Shall we make a list of said solutions?
