Im starting to get afew from weight lifting, I assume it's from deadlifts and curling but it could be anything doto with free weights. I've heard they take ages to have them disappear??? anyone know how to get rid of them?

Heh, when I started working out, I'd figure that I could skip the gloves by building up the callouse. Bad idea. The callouses started getting bigger and bigger, and eventually one day, one of them ripped.
Was so painful to continue training that I had to stop for a week. Now, I use gloves, but only for exercises that need them. For example, when I do shrugs on the smith, the grip on the bar is so spotted that it really kills your hands.
I still get callouses, but my skin is a bit darker so it's not very noticeable. Not a big deal.

i like them they make holding the deadlift a lot less pain if you have them"Pain is temporary, Pride is forever"

Its never to late to become what you have always wanted.
Everything you do, every single decision? you make, either takes you a step closer or a step further away from your goal.

And when they rip, it is wonderful. Makes for a great conversation piece.

Just file them down when they get to big. If they rip on an exercise, just super glue it back down and continue on.Best lifts done at a powerlifting meet:
Raw Bench 523
Bench Press 673 (single ply titan f6)
Raw Deadlift 650
Deadlift 702 (single ply Inzer MaxDL)
Squat 680 (single ply Inzer Hardcore)

"Hard men have hard hands."
I automaticly think less of a man if he has soft hands when it comes to the initial handshake. I am not possitive what every one eles believes but rough hands are the mark of one who works hard, weather it is manuial labor, weights or mechanical work. Hard hands show devotion. Badge of honor so to say IMO.

Try using Versa Gripps
But if you decide to lotion them to softness before filing them down...no lotion works better than cornhuskers lotion.
It is kinda weird as far as consistency is concerned, but once you work it in (5-10 minutes really...no ****...it takes time), your skin is SUPER SOFT!!!

As far as the lifting calluses, you can wear gloves but it's not 100% protection. The one other thing that's great about gloves is that you don't feel the weight as much which is argued that it leads to lifting more. I guess they say that because of the absence of pain/feeling of weight in the hands make it easier mentally to lift more weight.

All you can really do is keep them smooth like you said and hope they hold up next time. The only alternative is wearing gloves and I won't be doing that in this lifetime

If callouses are the best thing you have to show from the gym, you are doing something wrong.
I personally wear gloves... the callouses are less prominent and come on... most women really don’t like hands covered in callouses. There is also something off-putting about leaving half your palm on the bar after a set of heavy deads"The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told that you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal.
