Bought these for deadlifting, so that I could get away from the straps I was using and I'm amazed to find that I can lift just as much using these! I keep the ball in a little tub when I go to the Gym and the chalk is really easy to apply and I didn't find it as messy as other people have mentioned. Delivery was fast and well packaged. I can't say how long each ball lasts as I have only used them for 2 workouts but I will definitely be buying more when they do.
Tried gloves, they ripped (all of them). Used liquid (commercial gym), hated the sticky feeling. Got myself a home gym and i tried some climbing chalk, too much mess. Keep this next to power rack in a little tupperware box, Dont use it all the time and definately lasts a long time.
purchased this item for my son who does a lot of gym work, weights, so buying him chalk was a great idea, he loves using it and nothing bad to say against it, chalk is chalk to me? arrived on the date given, would buy again from this seller
