    First off, my grip blows. Secondly, my deadlifts are stalling because of it.

    I'm dropping 315 WITH straps, but my back is fine. I think maybe picking up some chalk, lowering the weight and upping the reps would help my grip, but I can't find anything ANWHERE locally that sells weightlifting chalk

    So, where do you guys order yours?

    chalk is not going to help you deadlift more than straps

    from what i understood from your first post you cant hold 315 with straps... you wont hold it with chalk

    you missed what i was saying... I was going to get some chalk, decrease the weight, and do more reps to try and increase grip strength

    I get mine at REI. Comes in a sock like thing so it doesn't get all over the place. It's called a chalk sock.

    But like others have said, any outdoors place should have it.
