    I was lookin' for chalk and bags on ebay, and came across a BIN auction for climbin' chalk bags. They said that the bags would be sent at random, and you had no choice in which bag you'd get. One of the bags pictured was pink with flowers on it. I sent a message askin'' if they could at least assure me that I wouldn't get one that was pink or had flowers, as I would not be able to do a heavy deadlift if I had to get chalk out of a bag like that. They never replied.

    So how your doing 2 sets of 40-45 a day.... Before you purchased this how many sets of pushups did you do every day?

    Pushups are one of the easiest exercises to improve. You want the super secret ultimate improvement strategy guaranteed to get you to 100 pushups? For only 3 Easy payments of 3.26 each day i'll be happy to give it to you :redface:

    Seriously here's a great way to increase pushups (there are tons of other routines that also work). Once a day maxout pushups, when your absolutely spent walk around for 30 seconds-1 minute, then do 10 more(or as many as you can but not more than 15). Tomorrow do Max+1 30 seconds-1 minute + 10more(or as many as you can). Repeat this everyday adding 1 rep to your max. When I was into doing lots of pushups I added 60 pushups to my max in about 6 weeks(i cheated sometimes I would add more than 1 rep if I could) using this method.

    I'm now drawn to that thing... I've been considering starting to use chalk and the idea of carrying that monstrosity around is just absurd enough to be fascinating.

    Unless you are climbing, a ZipLoc heavy duty freezer bag works pretty well.

    Yeah. When I bought my chalk balls, they came in lil ziploc baggies, so I realized I didn't need a special pouch after all, although I should probably get slightly heavier bags.

    Yeah I agree, hence me spazzing about it later in the thread.

    So is it ok to do pushups to failure everyday? Or like 5 days a week or something? I'm currently not lifting.

    Not only will it kill you, but it will also bury you in your grave without in eulogy.

    Should be fine...whatever your reasons are.
