I go to A guy named Franz Stefanik now. He's unreal and does some of the cleanest work I've seen.

Keep going after it man!

Does your gym allow chalk? If it's a University they probably do. That might be a better alternative to straps. I haven't looked into it, but I don't think chalk is expensive so it may be worth a try.

I don't think my university does, I'm going to ask tomorrow. There's an alternative, enviro something. No residue but has the same function as chalk.
