Does anyone have any recommendations for liquid chalk brands? I'm a sweat ball when doing HIIT, but don't want to use traditional chalk for weights as it's a bit of a mess for my tiny garage gym.

I use either bulk powders or the one from myprotein.com

Sorry for the poor formatting, I'm on my phone.

Thanks for the links @_williamkennedy ! I had seen those on Amazon, but wasn't sure about quality. I'll add them to my top contenders. πŸ˜„

This may be true, but it really gymifies a space πŸ˜…

I've known some people to have success mixing powder chalk with isopropyl alcohol (not sure of precise ratios), in case you already have both to hand and wanna give it a try?

Since I'm in Canada, some of the mentioned brands aren't available, or it's not worth it because of the shipping, so I'm rolling the dice with a brand from Amazon called Fitness Mad Liquid Chalk.

Wish my hands luck lol
