    Default Gorilla Glue and Hand Care

    I thought I would share my success using Gorilla Glue to patch up my hand after I cut a little too deeply into one of my calluses. I normally trim my calluses on my off day, but the other day I worked on them the same day, and they were too soft and I went too deep on one of them. After a couple of days, that part of my hand was still sore to the touch.

    Remembering how my fellow rugby players had avoided stitches in the ER by applying super glue to some impressive wounds, and doing a quick search on wikipedia, I found this article: Cyanoacrylate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia All I had was Gorilla Glue, and I applied a second coat after 30 minutes.

    I have to admit that I was rather skeptical that this would work on such a high traffic area (my hand) as opposed to what I had seen on, for example a gash on the forehead. Add to that I was using my 32kg frankenbell with a 5lb plate bolted to the bottom. This inferior (but cost efficient) bell had a ceramic coating on the handle that I had to chip off, so it is particularly rough, but I was anxious to do my medium day ROP.

    I brought a pair of cut off gloves that I expected I would have to use, but to my surprise, the Gorilla Glue not only survived the workout and eliminated the soreness on that spot but it also outlasted several sessions of blazing hot sauna and freezing cold shower and is still intact this morning after several applications of corn huskers and lotion over night.

    When I go for my RKC next year, I plan on bringing Gorilla Glue with me just in case I get a tear. I hope this is helpful to others.

    I havent tried Gorrilla Glue, but I know PVC glue goes on pretty clean, and theirs nothing like some clear Primer to Clean up the wound prior to the glueing.

    That's interesting. The Gorilla glue should stay attached to the skin till if falls off. Let us know if it heals or cracks open. I use super glue myself.
