BSN GYM CHALK

Get A Grip!

Athletes know how important it is to have fresh, dry hands when performing and working out. This is especially true for gymnasts, weight lifters, pitchers, field athletes, even rock climbers. That’s why they rely on BSN Gym Chalk to help keep their hands perspiration free.

The average human body has up to 3 million sweat glands, with the highest concentration in the palms of the hands. With that many sweat glands it’s no wonder the average person sweats about a quart of perspiration per day. Crank up the heat and the level of exertion and some people’s sweat level keeps on rising. Someone who aggressively works out perspires about a quart to almost half a gallon per hour. This is where BSN Gym Chalk comes into play.

BSN Gym Chalk is produced from magnesium carbonate, a white solid which occurs in nature as a mineral. Its inherent structure acts as a drying agent, as it absorbs sweat.

Sweat Free Zone

The sweat-free zone is especially helpful for gymnasts who depend on dry hands while training and performing on the rings, pommel horse, and bars. Some gymnasts chalk up their feet and even their legs to maintain friction for a better grip.

Great Value And Convenience

BSN Gym Chalk is competitively priced and conveniently packaged, making it a great addition to workout equipment. It is individually wrapped in eight (8) 2 ounce blocks. The individual packages alleviate messy loose chalk. The convenient wrapping also allows athletes to use it in specifically targeted areas. It’s efficient because it wastes less, making it last longer.

If you are a cheapo like me you prob thinking you can get away with buying baby powder and save the $14 -$20 you are going to pay. Well, ill tell you what when I broke up one block of this (8 blocks per order) I realized I was going to have a lot of chalk for a long long time. I filled about 2 inches of a sandwich bag with just like about a 1/4 block and still thats a lot. Prob a 1/4 - 1/2 a block would last me 1 - 2 months using a moderate amount chalking up before every lift 3 days a week. Worst case scenario one order (8 blocks) should last you one year ! Do the math, even if u use a little bit more than 1/2 a block a month still thats about a year. Oh and it sure beats baby powder, baby powder is smelly and it gives u a soft grip. This chalk gives you a firm grip and does not have smell. Well if you are reading this review, do reviews on this or any other products because its what makes this work. I use to get lazy and not do them but I realized that there are people out there that help us by reviewing so the least you can do is help them by doing a review.

What am I going to do with all of this chalk? I bought this 3 years ago and have just finished off the first block even after using it 3-4 workouts per week. I'm calling my lawyer now so that I can make provisions in my will for the remainder of the box.

I can't understand why I lifted for so many years without this, particularly deadlifts.

Shipping was quick and the goods were exactly as ordered.

My wife and I have been climbing for about two months and went through our trial Black Diamond chalk balls that came with our harnesses. To replace it we ordered this chalk because it was cheap and essentially the exact same stuff (magnesium carbonate.)

First impression - there's a ton of this stuff. You receive 8 bricks and while each one weighs only 2 ounces it produces quite a bit once broken up. I used an old protein drink container to hold 4 after I smashed them and it was about half full.

On the walls - there was a certain quality to the Black Diamond chalk that this stuff seems to lack though once you get used to it it performs adequately. Additionally this stuff dries out the hands a bit more than the other chalk but when gripping a small crimp hold on an overhang or sloper it's usually good to have as little moisture as possible on your hands. I would say there is probably some sort of processing that black diamond does to their chalk that makes it feel the way it does but when all is said and done getting a pound of chalk for less than 15 bucks is a steal when it works as well as this stuff does.

For climbing there isn't a much better deal than this stuff. Most of the major manufacturers use the same ingredients as this stuff contains and want to charge you 3 times as much for the same amount. If you're not particular about your chalk you can't go wrong with this.

Product has changed DRASTICALLY since the earlier 2009-2011 reviews. I much prefer my older batch of GSC chalk since it stayed in a solid block that you could rub on your hands. Not it crumbles into dust as soon as you remove the wrapping paper. If you want dust, fine, but I prefer the block.

Now I have to keep it in a big ziploc bag instead of just setting it on a shelf in my home gym.

Received this chalk yesterday. Decided to buy this over the Eco-ball because not only is the eco rarely in stock, but had read reviews about the eco compound not coming off the hands so easily. Anyway, this chalk is good. Improves grip immediately and with the very least amount of chalk applied. I will try it out for deadlifts which was the main reason I got it. I didn't want to mask my grip with straps or gloves. I am sure this will work just fine. Did bent rows yesterday and through all the sets, did not have to re-apply.

One thing though, this removes all excuses for lifting, for a long time. You get a lot of it. And I used what amounted to about 3/4 of an inch of product. Maybe going in halfsies with a friend might be good for some.

Again, great product at a sick value.

Update: Used this for 1st time for Deads, and this chalk is ridiculous. Once you lift the weight, the bar just "digs" into your hand, no slip at all. And the best part, it reduces the chances of calluses and bleeding from calluses just because the bar does not slip. At least not for now. Can't believe I've lifted this long without using this.

I was looking for gym chalk and came across this particular one, so I read the reviews and all were positive. When it arrived at my house I thought I had ordered it from Costco not Amazon, the amount of chalk you receive should last a couple of months or up to a year, depending on what you use it for. The chalk helped improve my dead lifting from one rep max to now 4 rep. I recommend this chalk to anyone who needs that extra grip.
