For those of us who are dangerously addicted to chalk and no, we’re not talking about your colorful hopscotch street chalk you had as a kid, this is for you. You leave the gym looking like you got into a kitchen brawl with Julia Child and her bag of Gold Medal all-purpose flour (or maybe something like this). Our addiction is manifested through hand prints on our clothing, on the floor and equipment, or the white dusty ring that settles around the chalk bucket. Not only is a lot of chalk wasted, it leaves a huge mess for your trainers to clean up and over coating your hands can actually be a detriment, resulting in unpleasant hand tears.
At Strength.com, we have just the product for you sans the heinous mess. Spider Chalk is liquid chalk formulated to keep your hands drier, longer. Developed by athletes and rock climbers, Spider Chalk uses laboratory-grade magnesium carbonate, the driest chalk on the planet.
Spider chalk absorbs the moisture (i.e. sweat) or oil on your hands that prevents you from getting an adequate grip on the pull-up bar, barbell, kettlebell, or dumbbell. Pure chalk increases friction and too much of it can result in nasty tears, whereas Spider Chalk creates a dry and sticky barrier without any resin or rosin. It also lasts longer than typical gym chalk. It contains 2 non-toxic bonding agents that prevents it from rubbing off mid-workout, which also means no mess! Say goodbye to white handprints on the floor and on your clothing, or inhaling chalk dust mid-workout.
Since Spider Chalk isn’t a powder, you can use it anywhere. No matter where you get your fitness on (i.e. large gyms, boxes, hotels, climbing gyms, university gyms), you can use this mess free alternative. So whether you’re doing pull-ups, touch and go power cleans, deadlifting, or performing any other movement that requires a strong grip, reach for Spider Chalk.
