Chalk or No chalk?

Oxygen - - Muscle-Up -

Chalk is used to re­duce the fric­tion be­tween your hands and the bar, and it can be great for move­ments where a bar­bell is sup­posed to move in your hands, as with a snatch, or ex­er­cises where your hands are sup­posed to ro­tate around a fixed bar, as with a bar mus­cle-up. Since your hands shouldn’t move much dur­ing a pullup, chalk is op­tional. It might be of as­sis­tance if you’re prone to sweat­ing or have cal­luses: A light coat of chalk can help pro­tect your hands and pre­vent them from rip­ping.
