i know its gay lol but if my calluses just keep growing:
1.) it looks kinda bar when you shake hands with big people (like when i go for interviews, etc)
2.) (this is the worst reason): they have a high chance of ripping of while doing deadlifts. mine have ripped off so i have learnt my lesson.

i gotcha anuj, its just funny because i take the oposite approach. I like having them, both on my hands and knuckles (MA training has done this to me i guess). That way when I shake someones hand, you get a firm grip, and you know that if I hit something, i destroy it. Manly hands dude hahahah.

yes they do love that stuff indeed. unfortunately, girls loving you alone won't get you a great job...

now, if you have a lovely woman who is interviewing you and you have manly calluses and a good resume....

it got partly ripped off. i ripped off half of it when i took my hand of the bar but the pain kicked in so i didn't pull my hand away immediately. i laid it back on the bar and waited for a big (the blood was falling on the bar btw) and then gently took it off a couple of minutes later. i then went and washed my hands and used a nail clipper to chop off the little bit of loose fluttering skin. then i bandaged it up for a bit. it hurt a lot but it was a superficial kind of hurt you know? it went away in 1-2 weeks...this happened last semester sometime.

For chalk: I just use climber's chalk. You can get a block for $1.50 at Eastern Mountain Sports.

What works best for storing the chalk? On the web I see buckets, bags, socks... What does everyone here use and recommend? Thanks.
