Hand care after lifting....

My hands are starting to get really messed up. What do you guys use for your hands? I normally clip my calluses but I've stopped since the skin felt really thin after I clip. today I was lifting like 160+ kilos for reps and I swore I gonna rip a callus again, luckily I didn't. Any ideas?

Core work.. necessary?

Just curious to see that if core work is still necessary in an OLY routine. While Squatting x4 a week along with performing the lifts over and over, should I still include some isolated core work? If so, what kind of core work do y'all do?

Thumbs up How high is your vertical jump guys?

Fifth time snatching, feedback?

Self taught. No bumpers in this gym. Lifting starts like 0:15 I think, can't trim from mobile. Third rep felt the best. This was my tenth set of triples bEu3ImkwoSw
