Jazz hands…

Skin elasticity is a term with which some of the ladies may be familiar.  Something about how your skin can be stretched out, but once released it returns to it’s normal shape.  Think of it as pulling on your cheek (not for distance, this is not a competition) and then letting go.  As oppose to falling straight down, your (healthy) skin will mold itself back into the shape of your face.  Skin elasticity exists all over the body including the hands, but unfortunately it also has its limits.

The skin on your hands has plenty of elasticity and it is not until we demand more from it that we find ourselves with some “dermal aperture problem”.  You can go for 99 Pull Ups without any tears at all, but if you hit that 100th Pull Up, BAM!, you have yourself some major DAP.  The number one culprit here is friction combined with speed.  Friction alone wouldn’t do it, because doing 100 Pull Ups in the course of a year wouldn’t not make for any issues.  Once speed is added to friction, then you will likely find yourself in a troublesome spot.

Let’s cover some more issues tomorrow, I feel like we are running short on attenti,
