weighted dips (idea)

i dont know if anybody is familiar with scuba diving equipment,but basicly we use a belt and lead weight thats contoured to your body.can anybody see a reason not to use these for weighted dips as having a plate dangling between your legs seems as though it may be akward

    A good idea if you,ve got such a belt available,got to be better than a 20kg plate swinging round your knackers.

    they are pretty cheap and easy to get hold of.i would of thought a plate would swing about abit and make stability a problem although i havent used one before (or seen anybody else use one)

    depends on the type you have but 30kg+ should be possible,theres plenty on ebay (although postage can be expensive for obvious reasons)

    There are no stability issues when securing weight to a dipping belt. Get yourself one of these

    Wipe the sand outta yer fanny and get in the f***ing squat rack!

    That belt sucks!

    Get a manly chain and leave the girly strapon at your local fitness-store with the leotards.

    You should be able to get about 40 kg on it I use to use one for weighted pullups. If that is not heavy or manly enough you could wear two; one across each shoulder like a mexican bandit.

    no offence - but i would feel like a right idiot wearing one of these in the gym.

    go stand next to the other fools thrashing around on the machines.

    I've used one of those belts above and they are the badgers nadgers tho not the hardest wearing.

    Stability, well you can steady the plate/s between your legs, bare in mind that the stability is also part of the fun, making the movement harder isn't necessarily a bad thing.

    The girly strap-on you refer to is rated at 1000lbs, although I can't imaging who would need that much. So, don't be such a fcuking know-it-all.

    Aye - it probably is rated to that weight - but that isn't repetitive over years - that belt wont last, and for that price - it sucks.

    Better off buying a real leather one with a chain and steel loops - much harder wearing.

    You clearly aren't a know-it-all, but now at least you know something.

    ive dived before and know what you mean, there is no way that the belt would be able to contain enough weight that would equaly a proper belt/chain
    plus a couple of plates swinging makes you look hardcore
