YOU NEED TO TAKE CARE OF YOUR HANDS!!!!!!!  Yes i know that we have sen tons of ripped palms pictures on Facebook with people being proud about it.  Yeah i know its pretty cool to be that tough, but all it really means is that now you cant workout tomorrow.  And thats not cool!  so we need to tend to our hands ahead of time and during.  First and foremost, you know where your callouses are on your hands.  These protect your hands but if you are holding on to a bar then these will be squished and ball up.  This ball is what will get stuck by the bar and then give the pulling point for your hands to rip.  Get a ped egg and file those things down.  Not to baby skin, but filed down to where its even with the rest of your hand.  I would keep one in your bag and give your bumps a brush everyday to keep them in check.  Second, hand protection during the workout: leather straps, gloves, tape.  All of these are great and the idea is to give you another layer of protection on your hands.  Sometimes this takes some getting used to. I know gloves and straps need to be worn in.  Tape is good but i think many people either will put too much on and then it gets bound up, or they put it around their hands which will roll up when you are doing pull-ups.  Keep the tape perpendicular to the bar.  Last.....chalk.  Chalk is a great thing to use and we all see gymnasts and lifter use it so we should too.  Realize that chalk is not glue.  Its mean to keep the wetness off your hands so you dont slip off the bar.  However, if you use to much then your hands will REALLY dry out.  This will make any callouses you have really a catching point or the palm of your hand will be so dry that it will tear.  The object is to use just enough for a light dusting, not a 1/8 inch layer on your hands.  Hope this helps.  Ask the trainer for help if your not sure.  Buy your self some tape.  Dont expect us to have it here for you. Take care of your hands so they can take care of you:) FEEL THE BURN!!!
