Need New Dipping Belt

Belt for dips and chins, I need to be able to load up serious weight, and most of the time the chain ends up being 2 short. dumbbells at my gym only go up to 125 so that doesn’t work out very well either.

Get a loading pin. Mine holds at least 6 x 25#, and I think there is room for 2 more. Looks like it could hold maybe 6-7 x 35#. That should hold you over for a while…

EDIT: It’s a lot easier to add/remove weight with a loading pin than using numerous DBs or stringing chain through a stack of plates.

i bought the Black Nylon one…its impossible to break and u can hold a TON of weight on it…and the chain is definitely longer than most i have seen allowing you to hold a shit load of weight on it…cant go wrong with this one!

The one from ironmind.com is great. Holds up to 1000 pounds, long strap, doesn’t weigh anything.

how many 45’s do u think it could hold

I think id end up getting this one

15" Olympic Plate Loading Pin & Carabiner, then id get the super squats belt or the dip belt (whichever fits my goals better)… if i get that then my christmas list goes up and i can get other grip toys.

shit fuck it u gave me a lot of great ideas now lol

probably 6 or so… I haven’t tried. 45s are too wide in the dip stand I have available, they’d be close on both sides. Plus, a stack of 25s has been enough for me so far.
