I used to notice callouses all the time and rip them off and stuff. But now my skin is just thicker without the annoying callouses. I will occasionly get a wound on my fingers and palm but only if its being scratched on something noticibley sharp or jagged on a wall. Never from the surface of the wall itself.

About 6 months ago, my callouses would actually be painfull when gripping and hanging from rails and stuff. Espiecially in cold weather. It felt like they were being pinched really hard.

when I had them I just kept them , if they really bothered me I'd use walls to remove them.

Nothing that really impedes training. A tad annoying later on, but nothing that I notice during training.

Actually, talking of hands...When I swing on a pole or scaffolding the top side of my hand hurts. Doesn't matter if im swinging side ways, or normally. Just a really sharp pain on the top side of my hand in the centre. The pain doesn't linger after I let go of the bar either.

The pain doesn't happen with anything else (so not vaulting etc) - just the swinging. It's not even the gripping either, just during the swinging.

Any ideas?

So if you do acrobatics things on the street with no other goal than showing off, please don't say it's parkour. Acrobatics existed long time ago before parkour.
