Magnesia in sports is a magnesium salt in the form of a specific white powder or solution, which is used to prevent slipping of the hands: the skin of the palms is dried. This increases the reliability of the grip, so that the barbell (another projectile) does not slip out of your hands.
Magnesia is a light, crumbly, friable powder that absorbs water very well. It is precisely because of this that it is successfully used in any sport where exercises / physical process imply a strong hold in the hand of equipment, a projectile, simulator handles, etc.
When exercising, the athlete's palms naturally sweat. In strength training, this phenomenon is especially noticeable during high-volume training - with high reps and moderate weights - as sweating increases. When training with large weights, even a small amount of sweat on the palms can lead to the barbell / dumbbells slipping out of the hands, which is traumatic.
After applying magnesia to the hands, sweat or water is instantly absorbed, the palms become dry. The grip of the skin surface with the projectile improves, the grip is strengthened. In bodybuilding, powerlifting, amateur sports in the gym, the use of magnesia is relevant for any barbell, dumbbell pulls, as well as for all types of bench press and pull-ups.
In addition to sweaty hands, magnesium is used if the hands accidentally get wet, for example, when an athlete takes a sip of water or a sports cocktail. Sometimes moisture appears on the shells themselves due to condensation (during the warm season in a small room with a lot of people). In the case of outdoor outdoor exercise equipment, after rain, with high humidity, the use of magnesia is relevant.
Magnesia is used in other sports: in gymnastics, horizontal bar exercises, rock climbing and any other where you need to hold something firmly in your hand.
The powder form of magnesium is more common, but there is also a liquid solution. The solution fills the pores of the skin better, lasts longer on the hands. However, after application, you need to wait a few minutes until the liquid is completely dry, so this option is used less frequently in training, and almost never in competitions and performances.
