After some chalk for DL

Hi,

My grip doesnt hold out for 130kg+ deadlifts, and this seems to be due to the sweat on my hands, so can anyone point me in the right direction for chalk?

What is the name of this chalk? Am I right in thinking french chalk should yeild some results!?

Cheers

Reevo.

    It should be easy enough to get if you have a climbing shop local, and like i said, only costs a couple of quid and also lasts for ages.
