    The whole reason i used to wear gloves was to prevent getting calluses....and then i realized i get 100 percent stronger grip without them, so i just use my bare hands and chalk.....

    Sometimes i will wear the gloves when i used the cable's....

    But these things are really bad....they are like brown and peeling and gross.....

    Is there any solutions to get rid of them? :o

    +1 for callouses.

    if you didnt have them, your skin would rip off. sometimes it rips off anyways :coold:

    take a lava rock or pumice and smooth them down. thats what mommy told me to do anyways.

    I've seen people using sponges at my gym, I don't think it would assist your grip but I could be wrong.

    I hate scratching my girls back with my fingernails because I hate the feeling of it, so it works out perfectly for me. Now I can just use the palm of my hand. :o

    Reminds me of the scene in Goldmember collecting his skin.

    Maybe deznutz doesn't have a gf and the calluses interferes with his "alone time". ;)

    find some decent pair of gloves, your grip will be 200 times better.

    I cut em off with a Xacto knife then use 36 grit to sand them smooth, do it every few months so they dont tear an bleed on the bar, too many pussies in the gym will complain im getting blood on everything

    I use gloves because my girl doesn't like rough hands. My hands have always been somewhat harsh due to the work I do, and now they're worse because of the CoC grippers.. so I don't need her to complain even more. Plus I like going knuckle deep holla :hsugh:

    I've always used gloves. I haven't come to a point where my lack of grip stopped me from performing a certain exercise.
