Don't hands need to be moisturized?
I thought callouses also occur from dryness of the hand

Absolutely they do need to be moisturized. Moisturizing is an important part of maintenance (along with trimming/scraping the calloused areas) but callouses are not a rest of dry skin.

Before a workout that's taxing on the hands, I'll usually wash my hands and apply some lotion, giving it a minute to soak in before chalking up.

Chalking dry hands will make the damage worse in the long run. You have to walk the line on dryness though, as a wet hand is prone to tearing like a dry one.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

No biggie. Dryness in the absence of working out (specifically with a textured bar) will usually lead to cracking of the skin. Add that propensity for cracking to a hand that is calloused from the wear and tear of lifting, and you've got a recipe for torn callouses.

A lot of guys that work out think its feminine to care for their hands, which is super ignorant. Healthy hands and feet are an essential part of performing well.

Did you all just recently start lifting. After four months that should go away unless your doing it all wrong. Stop grabbing the Damn bar and just set the bar in. Closed fingers palm unless psy haha

My grip is weak unless I rest it there. If you do not have some callused hands and you workout often you're in the minority.

If you deadlift, do pull-ups etc there's no way you aren't continuously getting calluses every week... The bench and curl crowd does not apply
