Who remembers using sponges to help with gripping a heavy deadlift bar? I was reminded of this excellent aid to grip after seeing a fifty something guy in the gym this week using sponges. Made me smile. Gym gloves did not really exist and sponges were the way to go. Not sure if this applies to the rest of the bodybuilding world but in  South Africa we also used squares of rubber from inner tubes. Worked like magic.  Very pleases to see Roelly (above) keeping the tradition alive.
