    Dip Belts

    Anyone know a good place to get Dip Belts from?

    I cant just hang a DB between my feet anymore (new dip bars are too low)!

    There seem to be loads to chose from. I am UK based if that helps.

    Cheers in advance

    He lives in the UK, could end up costing $20 to ship it there.

    The only thing I'll add is to be careful how much weight you saddle up. I was hanging 65 lbs at one point a few months back, and now have a shoulder impingement that I'm dealing with.

    I have had the black leather Grizzly dipping belt for at least 3 years now, so it's the only one I can really comment on. It's pretty good, but one of rivets popped out when I had 90 lbs on it (happened about 1.5 years ago. It was annoying, but it was an easy fix - I just took a long shoelace and wrapped it through the hole where the rivet used to be several times and then tied it tight around the rest of the belt.

    This place I know sells to the UK:
    - http://www.healthsuperstore.com/p-gr...r-dip-belt.htm

    And here's an amazon link, which I'd assume ships to the UK??:
    - http://www.amazon.com/Grizzly-Fitnes.../dp/B000FGU7OI

    ...Whichever one you get, though, get a leather one, don't go for the cheapest product, and definitely make sure the chain length is long enough (unlike the ones at my gym), otherwise the 45s ride waaay too far up your legs if you know what I mean.
