Tuf- foot.

However, you must maintain the callouses. Sand them down once every couple weeks or so. When they get too tough or thick, well they rip and now you start over. You could use a pommel stone, but that will take too much off if you sand hard.

New-skin will help them heal quicker. It's a mild form of super glue found in the band-aid section designed for mild cuts and rips.

I personally shave off the huge callouses that start just below the fingers. They negatively impact my performance on grip events by "bridging" the palm and pads of the fingers promoting the weight to slide down the fingers. If one rips get the extra skin off unless it is a blister (then drain it) and superglue the area where your skin is missing.

I bite them down. They never tear that way.
