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?

    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.
