    Slipping Grip?

    When I am working out ( mainly back day ) with heavy weight I find my hands slipping. On back day I use straps but even then I am still slipping. What should I use to help my hands not sweat and lose grip?
    I want to be a gladiator on Spartacus. Or at least be on the same cycle as them.

    if it's because of sweat, use chalk. if your is weak then work on your grip. farmers walk or plate pinching are good grip builders.

    it is definatly more sweat related. My grip is not iron grip but it strong enough. This may be a dumb question but what chalk should I get?

    climbing or gymnastics chalk should do the trick. It's stupid cheap, but can't be a pain to find.
