by Jeremy Brooks on Jul 23, 2010

Are you one of those persons who love the gym and are into body building? If yes, then you must be irritated with your sweaty hands during the exercises. This problem can be overcome if you start using gym chalk to get that perfect grip. To know more about this, you should read this article. What is meant by Gym chalk? Gym chalk is also known as Magnesium carbonate, which occurs as a white solid. This gym chalk occurs as a mineral in nature and is referred to as a gym chalk or climbing chalk because it is used in sports like gymnastics, power lifting, weightlifting, rock climbing and athletics. Here the Magnesium carbonate in this gym chalk actually absorbs sweat, thus acting as a drying agent for the hands. In this way, a person while holding any gym apparatus, will remain safe due to the strong grip and will prevent the slipping of the hands. It is very important to differentiate this gym chalk from other such products. It is totally different from the chalk used on the blackboard, sidewalk chalk or the one used for baby powder. One needs to clarify that baby powder reduces the friction between the bar and hands which weaken the grip. If you want to know more about the traditional uses of chalk, you can search the internet with keywords like rock climbing chalk. This will help you to find and search more about the different kinds of chalks and their application. Now days, there are many manufacturing companies which are providing fine quality gym chalks in the market. Mentioned below are some facts about chalk: In agriculture, chalk is commonly used in raising the pH level in soils with high acidity. The most common forms are calcium carbonate (CaCO3) and calcium oxide (CaO). * In grass tennis courts, powdered chalk was previously used to mark the boundary lines of the playing court. * In sports like gymnastics, rock-climbing & weight-lifting etc, this chalk is now usually applied to the hands to remove perspiration. * For marking measurement during sewing of clothes, the tailors use the hard form of chalk even today. * Even our toothpaste also contains chalk to serve as a mild abrasive. * One can use the fine chalk grains for polishing of metals, * It is even used in chemistry laboratories, as it is a source of quick lime by thermal decomposition.

They are: * Chalk Balls ”“ The chalk balls are very useful while lifting and exercising with weights. One can store it in a plastic bag or chalk sac which is commonly used in rock climbing. If you are going to use it, once put your hand in the bag; rub it gently for perfectly coating your hands. * Chalk Powder- Chalk powder is one of the most commonly used forms. However the powder is exclusively used in gyms but it creates a mess as the apparatus gets dirty. * Liquid Chalk ”“ This chalk is available in the form of lotion and spray. This is one of the best and commercially used gym chalks. All you have do is to put a few drops on the palm, rub it gently and apply on the surface where required.
