Due to the nature of the sport, gymnasts have to deal with their hands constantly ripping, bleeding, and living in a state of agony. Even with thick leather grips, gymnasts rip their hands often -- it’s inevitable! Chalk (which is very drying) combined with friction from swinging on the bars and/or rings lead to frequent rips and constant pain.
It's absolutely integral for a gymnast to stay on top of their hand care regiment, because a larger rip can keep a gymnast benched during critical training days (or even worse -- competition).
Not only does RipFix heal the hands extremely quickly but also provides the daily nourishment that a gymnast needs to keep their hands pliable and healthy.
There's a reason why United States Olympic gymnasts love RipFix!
