I’ve been wanting to post about this since Christmas! That’s when my awesome mother-in-law got me quite possibly the best gift ever — she has a habit of doing that.
When I opened it on Christmas morning I didn’t quit know what it was. Then I realized what I was holding was the answer to my icky CrossFit hands.
I just knew it!
If you aren’t a CrossFitter you may not know about CrossFit Hands. I’m not sure if that’s the official term but that’s what I call them. Basically, when you do CrossFit (or any repetitive activity where you grip a bar) you will start to form callouses here, here and here…
At least that’s where I get them most.
If you don’t take care of your hands properly the callouses can rip while you’re working out. Just do an image search for CrossFit hands and you’ll see some nasty stuff.
This happened to me once a few months after I started CrossFit and I swore it would never happen again.
So I started to treat my hands with a moisturizer and callus shaver like this…
Not fun but it was doing the job and helping me prevent tears for over a year. Until this past Christmas that is.
Now, all I use is the Amopé Pedi Perfect Electronic Pedicure Foot File and my hands have never been smoother!
I know I sound like an infomercial but it’s true!
When my mother-in-law bought it for me I’m sure she expected me to use it on my feet. However, this is how I looked all Christmas morning.
TMI? Possibly, but others need to know how awesome this thing is! I will never shave my callouses again!
I do use it on my feet as well because running also tends to create some nasty foot issues.
The Husband thinks I’m crazy but this thing seriously was my favorite gift of the year. I didn’t even know it existed a couple of months ago and now I can’t live without it.
