is designed by athletes for athletes, we have assured its
design will prevent the ripping of your hand by strengthening the callus
area in order to be able to continue your regular workout routine.
Callus Performance® works in two easy ways: by trimming and by shaving
the calluses; this will level the calluses with the rest of your hands
by carefully removing excess skin. Most of the callus treating products
in the market are very aggressive and weaken the live skin around the
callus, instead, Callus Performance® trims most of the callus and
strengthens the area in a more efficient way in order to prevent it from
What Are Calluses?
Calluses are the formation of hard tissue over a wound made by
the body to protect sensitive skin. These wounds are mostly caused in
areas that have had continuous friction against the skin. They vary in
size, shape, and can sometimes be very painful. They are very common in
people who weight train regularly, specially cross trainers. These type of
athletes need to treat the callus carefully in order to prevent them
from appearing over again. Some people opt to reduce callus caused by
weight lift by wearing training gloves, but often times this is not
enough, the callus still appear and another method is necessary to
reduce them by removing the excess skin growth.
Athletes strive to prevent calluses by using gloves and grips; however,
these options do limit the mobility and proper movement of the bar when
it comes to Olympic movements and kipping/butterflying on bar. If these
prevention methods don’t keep them from growing calluses, many athletes
tend to use traditional methods to remove them like shaving them off
with blades or other ineffective callus remover products. These methods
are not recommended since they can weaken the skin and still cause the
callus to rip causing painful irritation and bleeding.
Who Gets Them:
Anyone can get calluses, but the intensive use of the hands
during physical exercise makes athletes more prone to getting them.
Cross training, climbing ropes, swinging on bars, playing baseball or
even shoveling snow, are some of the physical activities that can
increase the appearance of calluses, in other words, anything that
causes intense friction with the skin will make your hands susceptible
to ripping. Because of their rapid growth, detecting them quickly before
they appear is not easy, a fast way to identify them is by noticing
when the surface of your hands becomes hard, dry, and thick. The skin
becomes rough, with bumps, ridges and you can feel tenderness under the
skin. Some athletes feel proud of their calluses because they develop
stronger hands, but the truth is, that the excessive appearance of
calluses can be very dangerous and lead to injuries or infections
without the proper care.
