    Default Stopping exercises because of sweaty hands

    Hello guys,

    I have hiper hyperhidrosisand if I'm lifting more weight in a deadlift,, I have to stop the exercise, because at some point the bar start to slip from my hands. I really like to use nothing, because I like to feel the bar and the grip, but it's impossible for me because of that.

    My old gym had some sponges like these ones you can see in the picture, and they were really nice, I had no problem.

    However I can't find them, maybe I'm looking in the wrong places. Could you guys help me? I can't use chalk, it's not allowed. So maybe the only solution is using gloves? I hate it lol. If only I could find those sponges....

    Have you tried wrist straps?

    Liquid chalk may be an option or find something you can dry your hands with and take it along with you; wrist straps as Laura mentioned are also an option.

    +1 on straps. They're immensely helpful for keeping the bar locked into place.

    Straps, straps, and more straps. Lifting hooks are also a nice option.
