Okay, so I was deadlifting today when my palms got REALLY sweaty for the last 4 or so reps. It totally taxed my grip (and it probably was a little dangerous). Then I got some chalk for my next set and there was no problem.
So, this made me think. Does chalk count as an assist (not officially)? I'm wondering if it does as much damage as, say, straps would. I was just thinking because I know a lot of you are totally against belts, suits, and other aids. Just want to start a little discussion
, what do y'all think?
