How does the dip belt stay attached to your waist? Can you use one for pullups?
i think it uses a carabiner, and you just have to make it tight enough. yes.
carabiner on the end of a chain.
I think today I'm going to stick a 25lb plate inside my regular belt for pullups. I'll need to get a real dip belt soon
As long as there is some sort of loop and the weight goes between your legs it is not going to fall off of you.
I just take a dumbell and scoop it off with my foot. I suppose this would be hard on a high pullup bar, though. I just use the lower assisted pullup station and move the knee pad out of the way.
Do you bend your knees? It seems like it would be hard to hold a dumbell for dips. I've done it for pullups before though.
I did it. First set I had a 10lb plate over my crotch. next two sets I had a 10 on each side of my hips. Worked ok. I don't want a 25 lb on my crotch though when I move up 5lbs
I've only done it with pullups for a few reps. I've been doing it for dips for the past three works. It's not hard at all. I don't think I bend my knees a lot though.. I have been using 30 lbs. I started wearing my chucks this week and it is much easier to hold the dumbell with those than my nike shoes.
I don't blame you for not wanting 25 lbs there I could see you bumping the weight in the wrong spot and flailing off the dip station haha.
opps I should've carified, I did it with a regular weight belt and it was for pullups. I don't have the dip attachments for my squat rack yet
a proper dip belt will not fall off with weight
if you got an ass it wont fall off
it feels good having a couple 35 pound plates hanging just in front of you balls when you do dips.
