I used to belong to a gym that didn't allow chalk.
I pulled off the stealth chalking with a Chalk Shot

Chalk helps a lot too because it tightens the skin and prevents it from folding.

Though I often follow some advice from Rippetoe with regards to holding the bar to prevent bad callouses. This helped me a lot.

Here is the video on it

if you take a fingernail file and file down the callouses it will help.

Nice. I'll have to check that out.

Thanks Spart. I'll give that a try on some of the lighter sets and see how it goes. It might take a little while for my grip to handle the bar that much further down, but its worth a shot.

Thanks J. Trimming them has helped enormously and I'll file them down before my next session and try it out.
