[GYM] Invisible chalk

Has anyone used any kind of invisible chalk? How good does it really work? I have some nasty ass sweaty hands that are a pain come dead lifting and bench pressing day. Can anyone recommend a certain brand if any at all and perhaps let me know where to get it? Can I get this from any sports stores in person?

A lot of gyms don't allow chalk.
The one on my campus doesn't. I just got used to lifting raw. I've just strengthened my hands to be able to grip the deadlift and dumbbells without chalk. If they get too sweaty (which hasn't been a problem lately) I'll just hit up the hand sanitizer and paper towel dispenser that is provided.

ah, the only gym I go to is a climbing gym. In the winter, they are terrible for your lungs.

I'm pretty sure one brand is called "Liquid Chalk"...I've tried it before and aside from it being more expensive, it works nicely.

Just take it easy, you hurt the tendon. You could be active on it, but you're not being paid to be active on it. Will a week of not running really be a problem? Are you training for a competition? I've played hockey and went rock climbing when I couldn't lift my left arm over my shoulder. Yeah, it didn't hurt while I was playing/climbing much, but fuck it hurts after. All I gained was a couple days of exercise and probably a lot of problems when I'm older. Be smart and listen to your body. If your ankle says, "it hurts to walk or run", then don't.
