1 Gripp Ul­tra Liq­uid Chalk

£ 10 Use this to put an ex­tra layer be­tween your skin and the bar. It also in­creases your grip, but un­like tra­di­tional chalk there’s no cloud of dust, so you won’t fin­ish your ses­sion look­ing like Tony Mon­tana.

2 RDX Weightlift­ing Straps

£7 rdxs­ The main pur­pose of a strap is to strengthen your grip, but it has the added bonus of pro­tect­ing your hands from the rough sur­face of the bar. Plus, gel sup­port pre­vents your wrist from bruis­ing.

3 Lons­dale Leather Weightlift­ing Gloves

£3 lons­ With your fin­gers ex­posed in th­ese leather gloves, you can get a proper feel for the weight, while the heel of your hand and wrist – the bits that take the big­gest beat­ing – are pro­tected.


£ 10 If your hands end up in tat­ters de­spite your best ef­forts, re­store them to their for­mer sup­ple selves with this re­cov­ery kit, which uses nat­u­ral oils to lock in mois­ture and soften hard­ened skin.
