    Knuckles get cut open from push ups??

    Hello, I am in my early 50s and have experience working out since I was 35. I had a routine that involved push ups back in june-September and my knuckles were always dry and bleeding with cuts on both hands.

    I switched my routine in September and eliminated push ups just to change up my routine because I finally found some heavy dumbbells online and my routine was stale. I realized a few weeks later that my cut knuckles went away. I went back to push ups a week or so ago and now the cuts are back.

    I do not do fist push ups. I use dumbbells or kettlebells to get a range of motion. I have no idea if these push ups are linked to my cracked knuckles that rip open slowly into what looks like deep paper cuts in one hand and then now in the other hand. They bleed slowly all day then go away after a day or so. Lather rinse repeat when I do pushups twice a week in a three day split.

    I researched and looked online to see the cause and nothing. Anyone experience this?

    I had similar issues with my feet for years. Lathering okeefes for cracked feet in the mornings and putting socks immediately healed my feet within one day.

    Try okeefes for working hands, apply generously and put on some gloves to keep it from drying out overnight. I’m not an expert but you can buy these things over the counter.

    I doubt it's pushups themselves although I guess it's possible if you're prone to dry skin or ezcema the pressure on and position of the hands could make it worse.

    As mentioned above, use some sort of hand cream and also get a humidifier for your place. If you use OKeefes buy the one that comes in the flat circular container and not the one in the tube. If it persists see a dermatologist and he/she likely can resolve it pretty easily.

    Second the O'keefe's, works miracles. Also, bought these things called perfect pushups at a junk store for four bucks. Figured they were hokey but the price was right to give it a go. Turns out I love the things. You can do 10 then turn 90 degrees and do ten more...

    Ill concur with skin care but will admit I've never heard of such a thing.
    Really dry cracked skin could be a reason.
