I’m a long time lurker (4+ yrs) and have used the search button and 5/3/1 so I have had no need to post. But I have finally run into an issue. I’m on the verge of actually pulling heavy, and my commercial gym which shall remain nameless does not allow chalk. My partner and I have been reprimanded for letting dumbbells hit the floor too hard and squatting in socks, so I really don’t want to incur the wrath of the schmucks who work at the facility more than I already have.
That being said, what are my alternatives to chalk? I’m thinking of using tack made for strongman, I should probably post this in strongman but I think it overlaps here more because I PL and don’t do strongman. I’m also thinking of using grip tack made for tennis, but it more keeps hands dry, and isn’t too tacky. I’m thinking about pulling the trigger on some of this stuff:
Aside from that, what are my options here?
