 Post subject: Classic Palm-itis?

Hey gang--

I recently discovered that I was doing my classic palm wrong. As soon as I corrected my grip it was like a light went on in a dim room. Since then I've spent most of my waking hours with a half-dollar classic palmed, and over the past month or so my hand looks pretty natural. However, I've noticed the veins on my right palm are standing out quite a bit, especially in the spot where the edge meets the left side of the palm. At first I thought it was just due to the tarnish getting pressed in to my skin, but the veins began to stand out elsewhere as well, and can still be seen after washing the dirt and tarnish off.

Anybody else encounter this? Should I be concerned?

sounds like a nice gripping point to me :lol: But no, i haven't. If you're really worried you could go ask a doctor. You're probably just working out your hyopthenar muscle really well and like most body builders, when you get to a certain point of working out a muscle it starts to get a little veiny. That is just my guess. I can't say for sure what it is or why it's developed.

I have that a little on my hand from the muscle pass. My veins aren't popping out or anything, but the color is a little more noticeable on both sides. It's nothing to worry about I'd imagine.

Yeah, it's more just the color of the veins standing out than the veins bulging from the surface. Actually, it's helped my classic palm get better; since it started I've been reducing the pressure in my grip to see if the symptoms would dissipate, and in doing so I'm able to palm a coin without much squeeze at all. Provided my hand doesn't need to be amputated, it might be the best thing that's happened to my technique!:)

I actually have a vein in the heel of my thumb of my left hand where I can take my pulse with my middle finger of the same hand. But I think that's been there since before I got heavily into coin magic.

Maybe you're holding the coin too tight and it stops your blood in that area or something... try holding it lighter
