Maybe I’m crazy, but using a weight belt around my waist when I do pull-ups makes me uneasy. I feel like if I swing a little too much the damn belt’s gonna slide off my waist and go crashing down.
So what I’ve been doing is attaching a big chain to a 45 plate and strapping it around my neck. It’s a long chain so the plate sits between my legs and it feels a lot more secure that way.
Then last night I started to wonder if it has the potential of hurting the vertebrae on my neck. I don’t feel pain, it feels like my traps hold the weight pretty good, but I don’t want to do something that’s going to hurt me in the long run.
Not sure if your weight belt has this option, but if you want you can run the chain through the loop on your belt first, which tightens the belt considerably (thus eliminating any ‘loose’ feel to it) and THEN take the chain, run it through the plate, and back up again to be hooked to the belt.
Know what i’m saying? So instead of taking the chain and immediatley putting it through the plate, then hooking it to the belt (which makes the belt pretty loose and kind of forces you to keep your legs out a little to prevent it from sliding down your hips, or at least the feeling that it will slide down), run it through the loop on the end of the belt and then hook it up.
Either that, or just focus a little on keeping your legs spread slightly in order to keep the belt from falling. If you have your legs hanging straight down then yes it will feel like it is slipping. Hope this helps.
