Unfortunately, when we perform strenuous physical activities using our hands, our palm get sweaty. This is a universal phenomenon across all ages and genders. Rock climbing, bouldering, weightlifting, gymnastics, CrossFit and a countless number of other sports all put a tax on our hands and make them sweat. The best and simplest solution to staying on the wall or holding on to the Olympic lifting bar is chalk. Yes, chalk the same stuff that you drew with as a kid.

When we talk about chalk we do mean magnesium carbonate (MgCO3). Over the years, chalk was found to be the best and most reliable way to keep our hands dry. On top of keeping our hands dry, it also protects our hands from rips and cracks. Ideal chalk will be the purest form of MgCO3 without any fillers and colors. Gorilla Grip chalk is the athletes choice. Second only to none Gorilla Grip chalk will elevate your climbing to the next level. If you are powerlifting, you will find yourself holding on to the bar for those few extra reps!

Not all chalk is made equal although many will claim to produce the ultimate chalk, the only chalk you should ever put on your hands is only Gorilla Grip chalk.
