I imagine it's also good for slapping someone who angers you to a high degree? Extra traction on the cross-stroke. Hmm... chalk seems to have more than one use!! I drink a LOT of water-even for us BBers, so I sweat A LOT. When I WO, I look like the pro BBers in the mags with the almost oily-looking skin during the photo shoots, just minus the gigantinormicus muscles. So, this sounds like something I will def. look into as well!!

Grip Power Pads - ALTERNATIVE TO GYM GLOVES, Weight Lifting Straps and Gloves
Needless to say, lifting weights and doing bar work type exercises is very good for your strength, fitness and overall conditioning. However, there are also certain precautions that must be taken when doing so. First of all, you should make sure you are cleared by a physician to engage in such activity. Second, you need to know what you are doing before you even begin. Strenuous exercise is not something you want to go into with blinders on.
One of the most important things you will have to do when participating in these kinds of activities is to make sure you have adequate hand protection. If you do not keep your hands properly covered you are going to wind up with blisters and painful calluses. Additionally, you run the risk of the bar slipping out of your hands, either as the result of excess sweat or your grip giving out.
There are many types of gloves and lifting straps that can help prevent these problems from occurring and for the most part they do a pretty good job. However, they are not without their shortcomings. For example, gloves often wind up making your hands sweat even more and sometimes they donít work real well with certain lifting bars. Fortunately there is a new product on the market which does an even better job than lifting straps and gloves.
That product is Grip Power Pads, located on the web at www dot grip power pads dot com . With Grip Power Pads there is no need to worry about whether they will fit or not because they are one size fits all. You see, these pads do not require you to slip your fingers into them and fasten any kinds of straps. They are square shaped objects with dimensions of 5 inch x 4 inch x 1 inch. They are also available in three different styles according to your particular needs.
For example, there is the Soft version, good for light lifting and beginners. Then there are the Firm, for anything in excess of 40 pounds. Lastly, there is the Foam version, used for thicker bars and probably the preference of more advanced lifters. Another neat thing about the Grip Power Pads is that they are made with no latex whatsoever. That is good because many people have adverse reactions to latex.
And perhaps one of the most important things you will find about the Grip Power Pads is that they can readily adapt to any type of bar you are working with. If you are into serious weight lifting you are going to encounter bars of different girths and shapes. Sometimes certain weight lifting gloves wonít work real well with them. Not a problem with the Grip Power Pads. Regardless of what kind of bar you come across, Grip Power Pads will get the job done.
But rather than keep reading on and on about them, why donít you head on over to www dot grip power pads dot com and see for yourself? Trust us on this; youíll be glad you did.
