    [MENTION=619]aesthetics[/MENTION] - you can get chalk from a local Anaconda store if they are down your way. Beal liquid chalk is pretty popular too. I make my own liquid chalk with Isocol + white gold crushed chalk. Cost me about $24 up front but you get 300g of powdered chalk and just keep topping up with isocol when you run out. Last you ages.

    I have the same dilemma, moved from a powerlifting based gym to a commercial gym.

    Most sport stores should sell it, (rock climbing/gymnastics). Otherwise http://www.undergroundelite.com.au/ sell chalk.

    Just take it in a tupperware container.

    I have no experience with liquid chalk.

    be sure to make sure that chalk is allowed to be used in the new gym, a lot of "commercial" gyms ban it unfortuantly

    There are plenty of website that offers chalks. But according to me Myprotein liquid chalk and Liquid Grip is one of the best.

    8 blocks of 55g sports chalk on ebay...DELIVERED!

    I dont care what anyone says... Chalk is all you need.... I get stupid sweaty palms and hands.... When i dont use chalk i struggle to deadlift 3 plates..... When i have chalk i can rack pull 300kg+... Such a big difference your grip makes...


    Edit: realised my ebay link was removed or something, but its like $14 delivered for 8 blocks of chalk.....
