    im a web developer by day and i workout at night. i wear gloves every time and my hands have never seen a day of hard labor. theyre still as soft as a baby's ass and every single girl thats touched them has complimented it. calloused hands may impress the guys at the gym but the guys at the gym arent the ones i want to rub down

    I guess if you want the body; you got to make a few sacrifices.

    Yeah fitness queens..."Know your Role and Shut your mouth" J/K.Anyway LatMan in his unique way is correct you have 2 options either take the calouses as a right of passage into PIU_Pumping Iron University or buy workout gloves

    I agree with codei on the point that girls don't really like being "scratched"

    Bah, just pumice stone them to keep them from being scratchy... Mine sometimes get out of hand (ha ha), but if you take care of them they'll be more like pads. Soft to the touch, but give you grip and protect the hands.

    yeah i am not a fan of gloves they hurt my grip but in all seriousness i can rough myself up when its time to show a littel self loving. I may try syntekz idea about cuttin them off

    also does anyone experience the clinced fist after heavy shrugs?
