The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís 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?

    Question about dip belts

    My gym has one of these

    Anyway, I'm getting to the point where I need to start weightng my triceps dips. So I put this thing on to try it out during leg day. Firstly, it's a PAIN IN THE ASS to get the chain threaded through the plate, hooked to theother side, and securely around your midsection.

    The problem is that when I'm vertical (ie standing or doing triceps dips) there's no way in hell that this belt will stay on. It just slowly slides down and over my ass and then it's all over.

    Wtf am I doing wrong?

    Take the chain, and loop it through the metal ring on the other side first, then take it down put it through the plate and bring it back up and hook it to the metal ring you put it through first. Thats how you do it.

    Ok, so the chain is attached to the belt on the right side. So bring the chain down through the metal loop on the left side, through the plate, and then connect it to the little hook on the left side?

    But then won't the plate be essentially hanging from the left side of the belt?

    no bring it back tot he closest link in the chain above the weight not all the way back to the belt....at least thats how i do it... i can;t get the chain back to the belt with 45's
    and the belt should sit above the hips, it shouldnt slide down...

    I like to kneel down with the belt on and put the chain through the weight and then hook it. I have seen some ppl do it where they hook the weight up and all to the belt on the floor and then put the belt on. I prefer the former though.
