180821 - Tips Tuesday (Hand Tears) - Partner WOD


With lots of toes to bar, tearing your hands can be issue! So here's a couple of tips for what you should do IF that were to happen: 

Once the workout is done and before you leave the gym, make sure you do the following---
1. Wash your hands with soap and water one more time.
2. Apply a generous amount of Neosporin to the fresh wound.
3. Cover the wound with a small bandage or tape. This will allow the Neosporin to do its job overnight to keep the area moist and prevent infection.

The video below says much of the same thing about how to continue to care for your hands to heal quickly! 

You might be wondering how to prevent the tears and the best option is hand maintenance and/or wearing grips! Check out last Tuesday's post to see more about my hand grip recommendations!
