    Dip Belts


    So, I've been trying to add weight to my chins & dips - finally decided I'm gonna have to invest in a belt of some sort -

    Anybody have recommendations on some good ones?

    How about home-made alternatives?

    Ever tried hold 135lbs between your legs while suspended? A good dip belt can be bought for ~$30. I have a nylon Harbinger one that I got in '09 and it is still in good shape.

    I tried a towel around my waist with a 25lb plate...

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Got mine from EFS. Toss the chain it comes with, and get a longer section at Lowes or Home Depot. Well worth the investment.

    Dumbbells work up to a point, but once you get to a decent amount of weight its not gonna work. Start with light dumbbells but also start looking around for a belt.
