    Squat Hip Belt


    I just recently started doing my legs and I bought the Squat Hip Belt sold by IronMind. Really does work the legs hard. Its not a replacement for normal squats, it just another excersise to add to your legs or take a day off from squats and use it.
    Blasts the thighs really good no lie. It is awkward though because you have a barbell swinging between your legs. It forces good slow form though to minimize barbell swing. It also is very hard, you will be able to life wayyyy less then normal sqauts.

    Just putting it out there for you guys, its a good option.

    These are great. What you can do though, is hook a couple of kettlebells through the chain so they are hanging between your legs. You put them on the floor and have a box each side of you acting as a platform for each leg. Then, when you step up on the boxes, squat away!

    Yea I am going to try standing on like a few 45lbs plates so I can do deeper sqauts with the barbell. No kettlebells at my gym sorry.

    Thinking of hooking up to the cable weights too and trying them.

    I think could be a good variation for legs, but definetely back and front squat are the best.
