    Debating whether to go with these or get some spray chalk. Gym I'm at doesn't like chalk, but I doubt anyone would say anything to me.

    I don't have a problem with grip strength (yet) but just my hands sweating and slipping off the bar on heavier deads.

    Also read the older thread on these:

    I use a "chalk sock."

    Doesn't get chalk really anywhere, and should be ok in a non chalk like place. Most people don't even know what it is at the gym.

    As for that other thing, no clue.

    Thanks. That's helpful. This is the first place I've been that hasn't allowed chalk. Sucks ass.

    it's the solution for people who don't want to wear gloves i guess.

    think about it- it's just a soft padded piece between the bar and you

    Not a bad idea, I dunno if it would actually work, I would still try and smuggle in chalk.

    Think of it like a sock with chalk inside :wiggle:

    Its something that rock climbers use. Its easy to keep it in a pouch and it doesn't make a mess. Just pat it in your hands a few times and you're set.

    Is it in yet?
    We use them in a chaulk pouch while rock climbing ( indoors ). Its a fine fabric ball that is filled with chaulk

    i read in an article on t-nation about deadlifting... it said if you really can't use chalk then these are an adequate substitute.

    Yep, that's what I have. I got it at an outdoor place called REI. Stays in a plastic ziplock bag. No mess at all. Even if I use a ton there is barely any on the ground.

    I use it on almost all of my lifts now. :o
