    Atlas Weighted Dip Belt - How Much WT?

    Does anyone know the maximum weight that can be loaded onto a Nylon Atlas Weighted Dip Belt? I am currently using 135 pounds for Tricep Dips, but I know my belt will accomodate another plate. Will the chain link on this belt be able to hold 180 pounds or should I seek out another belt? I haven't seen any maximum weight limits advertised for any of the weighted dip belts out there. Thanks - Jeff

    I know the maximum weight on the quicklinks is around 315lbs (usually used to clip chain back to belt). I would imagine the nylon and the quicklinks would be the weakest part of the belt.

    Thanks. I should be fine then as I don't think the chain is long enough to come close to accomodating 315 pounds worth of weights - As if I could even use that much!

    Haha, I have one of those (same brand and everything). It bothers the hell out of me because it's not adjustable and I'm too skinny ;_;
