Torn, ripped Hands?

I've tried many ways to fix blisters and heal calluses. And, no, I refuse to pee on my hands.

Try this. It works.

Before you go to bed at night:
1: Take a vitamin E capsule or two, tear the end.
2: Squeeze, generously, on calluses and gentle rub in.

Hey Presto, hard hands the next day.

If it is a very big full blister, poke it near the base with a sterilizer needle. Follow steps above.
If not so big, then just smear it vitamin E.

Note: Vitamin E creme doesn't work. Use a capsule.

PS: I row. I know about torn hands.

Heh. I used to row, back in my teens.

I am favouring removing my calluses with a pumice stone.

This guy goes a little further.

ummm.. a bit of Vitamin E oil and a good night's sleep seems to work for me.

YES keeping calusses flat is 100% important.

Ahghghghgh--gag. no knifes or aghagahagah with my method.

And Vit E works.

PS: Isn't rowing good prep for SimpleFit/CrossFit? My plan is to convert all CrossFitters/SimpleFitters into rowers..mwhaaamwahmwhaaaaa!!!!!

Rowing is a huge part of Crossfit already. That was one of the main components of the cert.
