The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

It’s no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Dipping belt?

    Is there any other way to do weighted dips without a belt, and is there any difference in the qualty of a dip belt?

    All you need is two peices of webbing and you can make a slightly ghetto dip belt. Worked for me when I was doing weighted lock-off work training for climbing.

    A dip belt will do nothing more than sling a plate or DB between your legs. You could just get a rope and loop it through the plate and around your waist and it would do the same thing.

    You can hold a dumbell pretty easily between your knees if you dont have a belt.

    How are you doing dips? I first started out doing them on a "dip" station, then I started doing them with my legs elevated on a bench and plates in my lap

    Just throw some weights in a back pack and wear it on the front of you rather than behind. This will help you lean forward.

    Im assuming hes talking about vertical dips since he doesnt want to use a dip belt.

    Plus, a lot of people feel no resistance with weights on their laps.

    I would just buy a dip belt. You should be using them for weighted pull-ups also.
