Can someone take a quick look at this link for me and tell me if this is the proper kind of chalk I should be ordering: http://cgi.ebay.com/AAI-Gymnastics-C...#ht_500wt_1182
sorry to kind of invade, but i was going to make a similar thread and thought my quick question could be answered here;
i am going to start using chalk as my grip is the weak point in my deads (just added a day to add static holds and/or farmers walks so that should hopefully help). Is it okay to use regular chalk, or is there a special kind of chalk i should know about? By "regular" i mean the one kids use to play with as it's probably more convenient for me to get this.
I am also curious what the correct way to grip a bar is.. Today, i had a callous just waiting to burst on me and after my first working set it did, which set me back on my 2nd set and i just skipped my 3rd.
That is the chalk you want. Pretty much any chalk will work. You should be able to find it at most sporting good stores and if not then check any outdoor/adventure stores that have rock climbing gear. It's not hard to find and super cheap.

This Is Awsome, I Was Thinking Of using Chalk for my Work outs lol Now Imma Actually go for it.
Deads: 325lbs(Goal: 400lbs)
would using regular chalk be sufficient? @ the store, they only have chalk that draws for like little kids so that's what i bought
Most people pray for a lighter load in life...ever thought of praying for a stronger back?

Kind of a stupid question, but are a few paper towels enough to wipe the chalk off the bar?
Depends on the knurling on the bar... I usually use a wire brush, but a terry cloth will work fine if you push it with the grain of the knurling.
