Gym Chalk is commonly used to help absorb sweat and increase gripping longevity of the hands during weightlifting, calisthenics, gymnastics and rock climbing. The grip is often the weak link when it comes to performing grip intensive exercises. If you can correct this problem by eliminating moisture that causes you to lose your grip, then you will often enhance your performance capabilities allowing progress to be amplified. For the weightlifter, gripping the bar with a mixed grip or even using weightlifting straps combined with gym chalk can be even more effective on certain lifts when needed.
Gym chalk is available in blocks and chalk balls that look like a chalk filled sock that contains the chalk and gives the user a more consistent covering on their hands. If you prefer chalk blocks, you may want to consider a chalk bowl as an easy to access form of containment during your workout.
