          Seems like everyone tears their calluses at a comp.... I have seen everything from chalk to super glue used to re-attached them mid-show just so they guys can conintue. Worst I have seen so far was a teen who broke a finger (very badly) during atlas stones, grabbed some tape really quick and taped it to his other finger to finish up stones... tough kid.

            Man, I think that's worse than my hands... I keep a bottle of brush on superglue in my bag to re-attach that pesky skin.

              they got a little messed up during the deadlift, since i wasn't using straps. then i guess it was the hot implement and the fact that it was a little rough, not knurling just rough, and that it happened to be 315lbs in each hand....

              the general consensus from everyone was to shave the callouses down as they grow, that way you can rip them off.

                That's what I've started doing. I got a callouse file and i've been gradually knocking them down as that's the advice i got as well.

                  I saw yesterday how this could happen. We have a car deadlift in the next comp so we use farmers handels to train with. That shit had my hands burning. I cant imagine having 315 in each hand....

                          There may not be a car deadlift in that contest now, someone stole the car deadlift implement from the gym.

                            I think I heard about this on another forum. Crappy.

                              We thought about either doing the Beast or the one you are talking about. In Central Florida right? We decided on the Beast.
