CFF HEAVY DUTY LEATHER DIP BELT & CHAIN
Dip belts are commonly used in weight training. One of the few - and best - known methods of adding resistance to the dip, the dip belt is also commonly used to add resistance to pull ups and knee/leg raises when hanging from a pull up bar. Unlike most weighted clothing, dip belts are not affixed to the body, rather the weight suspends semi-secured to the belt, suspending from the back and generally held up by resting on the gluteus.
As such, it is only useful in strength training movements, and not for dynamic movements, making it only pseudo-clothing. Dip belts are also used for added weight in squatting exercises, for people who want to work their quadriceps muscles with more weight without compressing their spine or straining their back muscles or hands. Due to the dangling length, these belts quats are usually done elevated, where the suspended weight will dip much lower than the feet, allowing a sufficient range of motion. How far below the feet it goes determines the range of motion of the exercise, similar to limitations like squatting in a power RACK for working heavy resistance near the top of the movement.
