Well, because I frequently include my Rolling Thunder training in with my other stuff, by the time I start going "heavy" on it, my hands are getting sweaty and my RT is getting slippery and sometimes my towely doesn't seem like it's getting the job done ... so I bought some chalk. I've noticed that a lot of time on my max attempts on the RT, that sweat and 'slippage' really have become a limiting factor. Of the Rolling Thunder training pics I've seen, I see a lot of people using chalk ... but I have never used chalk for lifting, so ... ... Is there a certain way I should put ze chalk on? Do I just rub it all over me hands and RT handle and that's it? Is there anything that I should make sure not to do? Can I eat the chalk?
