I was expecting this sentence to end differently.but now my girlfriend insists I always use chalk since i lost grip
I am sure it was upsetting for her, but I would have loved to to see that.sent it straight on top of my daughters play kitchen causing it to explode.
Nothing in lifting is "cheating", it depends on the training effect you are after. Is chalkless Simple or Sinister an achievement you want? Is wearing wrist bands or gauntlets cheating? A beltless 500lb Deadlift? Or so much kit on you look like a pro strongman. Is wearing knee sleeves and shoes cheating? I don't care. You are not a superior being because you do not use lifting aids.
OK, I am back with a "rebuttal."This is what the S&S 2.0 book mentions about chalk:
"Use chalk." p.63
"I will say again:Use chalk." p.63
"Why People Fail on S&S
- Do not use chalk.
Doesn't get any clearer than this.
