but On the flip side if the only problem is sweaty palms then your grip is fine it's the sweat that's the problem.. and Wolf is right in that wearing gloves will make it a little harder since it will be more material to grab BUT... this is the flip side I was talking about...... gripping a "fatter" bar will HELP your grip strength. so I say if you like the gloves and they solve the sweat problem, use them because they are actually might be aiding in developing your grip.. even though it might not be that much as opposed to direct gripping work.

+1 on the farmer's walks! I say try using chalk if you want to, but if the staff tell you anything, say you didn't know. That's what I'm doing when I get some. Chalk on the floor shouldn't be a problem, since they are SUPPOSED to clean the floors anyway, right??

I've also heard of this one exercise with a pipe that has a hole through the middle, kind of like one of the openings on a flute, just all the way through. Through this, a rope is inserted and tied. At the other end of the string, you tie a plate. Then, you start rolling rope around the pipe by twisting it like a motorcycle throttle. I'd like to try it out myself. Long exp., I know, but I don't know what it's called, and it's killer, they say. Also, single-arm bent over rows have helped me develop my forearms. Maybe you can try those squeeze-caliper devices. Good luck.

With gloves, you have the matter of the material slipping between your hand and the glove.

For the sweat, use chalk.

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Is there a type or brand of chalk that I should buy? I just lift at home in my basement so I won't have to worry about being hassled by gym policy.

When I lift I have been using the one palm forward/one palm back grip, and alternate which is forward/back with each set. I guess I'll try both palms back at the start of the set and when my grip slips put one hand forward as suggested.

I was thinking about getting those hand grip squeezer thingies. Are exercising hands any different than any other muscles... How many sets/reps & days/week would I do with the hand grip squeezer thing?

Thanks.

here you go: http://www.prowriststraps.com/inc/se...chalk&n=191667

there are different types of chalks to choose from

before you buy anything, send an email to Alan and ask him what deals APT has for you. they usually have some awesome deals so definitely ask him.

Alan's email addy is: "Alan Thomas" <APT@prowriststraps.com>,

its good that you alternate between an over-under and an under-over. i made the mistake of only sticking to one. but, im changing now yeah definitely use an over-over for as long as you can.

dont do them.....the plate pinches, farmers walks and static holds are much better.

because it takes away the dead skin. its not massive aggressive scrubbing or anything...its like nail filing. you can find these scrubbers at walmart near the pharmacy/beauty section...they're cheap too.

i know its gay lol but if my calluses just keep growing:
1.) it looks kinda bar when you shake hands with big people (like when i go for interviews, etc)
2.) (this is the worst reason): they have a high chance of ripping of while doing deadlifts. mine have ripped off so i have learnt my lesson.

I agree with Wolf. Don't use gloves. It's ok two re-grip esp on that exercise. If you're having that much trouble holding it, lighten the weight a little until your grip has built up. Your grip will eventually even out and sustain the weight. Pullups have helped my grip immensely. Chalk is ok also but I like the old fashioned way just your hands. and p.s. girls seem to love the calluses haha...makes you appear to be rugged or manly or whatever..haha

that's my 2 cents
