Callouses, pullups, and going hard!

Jason earns a CrossFit badge of honor!

Most CrossFitters, at some point or another, will end up tearing their hands.  It’s usually during a high-rep workout with pullups…like the one we all did today!  Remember to take care of your hands- if you feel callouses building up, grab a nail file and sand those suckers down!  The taller they are, the more likely they are to tear and leave you wounded for a few days.  No bueno!

That being said, I love seeing the determination- Jason was slipping off the pullup bar, and I could see the skin getting torn, but he kept jumping back up there.  He was going to finish the damn workout!
