    good thing I posted earlier and didn't go for 495. I got 455 up easy and held out at lockout for a few seconds, but my grip started to fail and I ripped off a motherfucking callous on my left hand...I'm so pissed. What do you guys do when you get real thick callouses on your palms and they start to mess with your grip? I'm thinking about getting one of those pummas stones or whatever to take them down.

    I just leave my callouses , i like them. They are much stronger skin so they protect you :hsd:

    nice work on 455, did you feel good on that lift & is 495 in your sights? what's your weight btw?

    gonna try 495 soon. I have been hitting the weights hard for the past 2 months and I'm going to take it easy and not train as intense as I have next week, then get back into it. I need to take a little time off since I feel pretty rundown and think its time to let my body catch up with itself.

    Good job bro, I told you 495 would be hard...and about the callouses, I just use a nail trimmer and cut the excess off.

    I take a small pair of scissors and cut the calluses down when they get too big, then file them down with something so they're smooth again.

    Mine usually just grind off everytime I pull, so that keeps them in check
