I am a level 8 gymnast and I know a lot of the tips and tricks to break in new grips but I just broke my grips tonight and have one practice until I leave for competition. I got my new grips tonight and was able to break my grips in enough to do a low bar( it was kinda ugly but I managed). However I’m really scared to do high bar because I feel like I am going to slip off in my giant just because the chalk will not stay on them.

Does anyone have any unusual tricks to break them in really fast that work or anything that helps new grips keep the chalk on them.
