Just a nice new bar. It is the best way I think of keeping the callus down. I think to keep them from ripping is to chalk. Make it a decent amount. I think when your hands are sweaty and the bar slips in your hand. They rip then. I had my hands only rip one time over the years.

BTW, I've been using elastoplast sport tape for a couple weeks now after this post. My thumbs thank you very much.

I don't know about elastosport tape specifically, but I found a great deal on elastic athletic tape on Findtape.com

Use fine grit sandpaper to keep calluses smooth.Don't remove them, just keep them smooth with no rough edges - that's what causes tears usually.
