    Dip Belt - Which One

    Want to Take my Dips and my Pullups to the next level.

    Probably going with one of these two.

    RTO Weighted Leather Dip Belt
    http://stores.nextag.com/Discount_An...oduct=88548274

    or

    Atlus Nylon Dip Belt
    http://www.olympiasports.net/product...ductId=2161028

    Any suggestions, warnings, information?

    Which do you think is better and why?

    Which weight belt are you using, and if you bought it online, from where?

    The one I have looks like the first one. I love it. I haven't had a single problem. It is leather and metal. What could go wrong?

    Sounds Good. I figured that would be the response and that's what i'm going with.

    Recommend a reputable vendor?

    I have a nylon one....the hook broke once...less than a month after i got it, took it back and got a new one. and just a week ago the weld broke where the chain is connected, which wasn't hard to fix, just a spot weld was needed! other than that, no other issues with it, and is quite comfortable.
    The Iron never lies to you. You can walk outside and listen to all kinds of talk, get told you're a god or a total bastard. The Iron will always kick you the real deal. The Iron is the great reference point, the all-knowing perspective giver. Always there like a beacon in the pitch black. I have found the Iron to be a good friend. It never freaks out on me, never runs. Friends may come and go. But two hundred pounds is always two hundred pounds.

    Just get 5 or 6 feet of chain from the local harware store...

    I just use a regular weightlifting belt - one you would use for squats, deads, etc. Well I never use it for squats or deads, but I do use it for pull-ups. I jsut use a strong bungee cord or some rope and attacth the weight to either the metal buckle or the leather straps that the belt goes through. Its not excactly comfortable but it doesn't hurt or anything. I've used it with up to 70 lbs of weight attached and it does fine. Oh, and I always put one of those rubber mats underneath me incase the weight drops.

    yeah, I'm kind of cheap.
