Default Strongman tacky (leg wax)

Heard it on TV, said by one of the UK Strongmen, a couple of days back, and when asked what he was using on his arms for the Atlas Stones, he mentioned it was ladies aloe leg wax; obviously used cold and probably the best use for the stuff given the other use.

It reminded me of the time I read that Olympic divers use shaving foam between dives, washing their legs with it, in order to make the legs "dry" and not hold moisture so that on entry into the water there was no pull etc.

Some of the oddest things are used and maybe they work out cheaper than the "official" versions, as long as they work as well as other versions is all that matters.

They had some form of wrapping around the forearms and then the leg wax on top of that; it just looked very tacky not so much hair ripping.
