Applying Tacky

I have recently purchased some Strongman Dave Ostlund Elite Tacky from Strength shop and the tacky seems very dense and not very malleable in the jar. What's the best way to apply it, do I need to heat it up?

    Heat it up briefly with a blow torch or lighter is the best way in my experience.
    Just coat hands and forearms in it. I prefer to tape my forearms in training and if the gym is really hot as it prevents sweat getting under the tacky and causing it to slip and come off.
