    Has anyone experienced pain in the meaty part of your palms (next to your thumb) from training with freeweights or doing dips and the like? It's painful enough that it actually prevents me from doing certain exercises. Very frustrating and was hoping to find something I could do about it.

    Palmar pain? Could this pain be because they musculature in your palm are tight from gripping the weights and supporting your body weight during dips? Why not stretch out your "thenar, hypothenar etc muscles of your hand". Search for palmar stretches. Try this, if it is a muslce based problem, you will find relief with the stretches.
