"A dime-sized amount got me through 30 minutes of pull-ups and heavy barbell rows before I reapplied. And not for nothing, the bottle is compact, a little under 3 ounces, and fits in a pocket. For anyone having trouble with a sweaty grip, Secret Stuff is a great place to start."
The Wall Street Journal
