Apollo Athletics Athletic Lifting Chalk - What is the best way to keep hands dry and have a secure grip during workouts without the use of gloves? Magnesium carbonate, also known as gymnastic chalk, acts as a drying agent by absorbing sweat. These means your grip will stay strong when holding barbells, dumbbells, and kettlebells, or when performing pull-ups. A reliable grip is essential to powerlifters and crossfitters for heavy deadlifts, so workout chalk will help prevent slipping of the bar from your hands. In addition to power lifting, weight lifting, and crossfit training, gym chalk is used for gymnastics, rock climbing, and field athletics.

"A slight amount of perspiration on your palms significantly reduces grip strength. And grip strength is a determining factor in success during 'pulling' lifts like cleans, deadlifts, and pull-ups. To get better at these exercises, use gym chalk. Gym chalk is a drying agent. It substantially improves your grip. Unfortunately, most commercial gyms and fitness clubs ban the use of weightlifting chalk, even though it’s probably the most useful weight lifting accessory. Because of gym chalk’s reputation for making a mess, there is an entire generation of weight lifters who are unfamiliar with the instant benefits from chalking the hands before a heavy lift. It’s time we got back to using chalk in the weight room."
