Which is worse while practicing/competing bars, rips or blood blisters?
I find that if you keep working on a blood blister they get bigger, so I always cut the skin off as soon as I get one in order to prevent this. So in effect the blood blister becomes a rip, so for me I don't dislike one more than the other. But, I've never had a blood blister on strap bar though, where do you get them? on your wrists?
if rip leaves a flap, simply press skin back into place and then apply a small drop of crazy glue around the perimeter. the flap will die off while new skin begins beneath. you will find that this works much faster for healing.
