Magnesium Gym Chalk Blocks - Eight 2 oz. Blocks (1 lb.) -- Apollo Athletics (G-CHK)


Apollo Gym Chalk Blocks for Weightlifting - Gym Chalk is used to increase grip strength and prolong grip longevity when using barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells and cable attachments. Gym chalk can also be used for gymnastics and calisthenics training to maintain a firm grip at all times. Gym chalk is primarily made up of magnesium carbonate which acts as a powerful drying agent and is extremely effective at absorbing sweat and helping prevent blisters. A reliable grip is essential to powerlifters and crossfitters when performing heavy deadlifts and other Olympic barbell lifts. Gym chalk, also known as "weightlifting chalk", not only helps increase performance while weightlifting and performing gymnastics but is also popular among rock climbers and field sports athletes.

"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."
