    Need to find a dip belt

    The club I'm a member of Northwest Athletic Club, doesn't have dip belts (those things that look like regular workout belts only they have a chain to attach weights) and I'm not having much luck online finding a good nylon one with a long enough chain to hold a 45 lb weight. If anybody knows of a good place to buy something like this I'd be most happy.

    I could never find one in a local sporting goods store. You might be able to. Other than that - online is the best bet. I picked mine up at Arnold's 2006 at some compay's booth.

    Go to a store that sells fitness equipment and/or weights. That is where I got my dip belt.

    Why don't you just by a belt with a shorter chain and buy a new, longer chain to go with it?

    (Google took .25 secs to find this. It's all in the search terms. Click the first link--it's from Amazon)

    Personally I dont think you need a "dip belt" Just go to your local sporting goods store and buy a Nylon weight belt (or leather) that is good quality......Then go to Home Depot, Lowes, etc. and buy a Caribiner (clip) and some chain (get strong chain). Clip the chain on the buckle of the belt. I have been doing this for months and it works for me. I do up to 75lbs on the chain with no problems.
    Bench - 315*1 Goal 325
    Squat - 275*4 ATF Est 1RM = 300 Goal 310
    Deadlift - 405 x3 Est 1RM = 429 Goal 455

    Goal by 6/1 1010


    I just started doing real squats and deadlifts about a month ago so hopefully these will grow quickly.

    Until you get the belt, you can cross your ankles and have someone put a weight between your legs.

    I bought the big nylon one from APT wrist straps, and then swapped out the chain. The new chain is a little too big though, so the belt now weighs nearly 10 pounds.
