A backpack will be awkward, hurt your shoulders, and not be too scalable. This works just fine for me.

Harbinger Polypropylene Dip Belt with 30-Inch Steel Chain

I use one of these, works great. Secure and centers the weight right between the legs.

Harbinger Polypropylene Dip Belt with 30-Inch Steel Chain
Best $20 I've invested in lifting this past year. Went from where you're at to wide grip chin @60lbs x3 and regular pull-up @70lbs x3 in a matter of months. Great for dips too. My current 5/3/1 4-day split routine calls for high rep pull-up on dead lift day, which is now has me thinking I'm going to add a heavy day on Saturday mixed in with my cardio. It's my best lift according to

u/TheHoundThatRides · 12 pointsr/Fitness

Dude, just buy the belt. It has good reviews. I bought one in a similar price range off amazon and it's been fine. The pointy front end is starting to peel but it's taken me from like a 250 lb squat to a "380 for 8 reps" squat and it does the job well enough.

EDIT: Edited to be more accurate with my current strength levels.

u/xfoxyx · 10 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I found bags for weights not so comfy overtime. My advice would be to rethink the weight attachment to your body.

  1. Poor man's style - rope / karate belt wrapped around your waist and through the plates. If it hurts too much, add a sweater around hips for padding
  2. If you're a climber you can use climbing harness
  3. My favorite option - You can buy dip belt, something like this
  4. Use a weight vest

    Dip belt pros - cheap, can attach shitload of weight, perfect for dips and pullups. Cons - weights swinging on the chain can get irritating

    Weight vest pros - weights close to your body - perfect for pushups, handstand push ups. Cons - not so comfy for pull ups and dips (movement limitations), impossible to overload / add more weight than it's build for.


u/Awarenesss · 9 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I used this one and was able to load 135lb without a problem. It's been out in the elements for 2+ years now and still is in great condition. I highly recommend.

u/deosama · 8 pointsr/Fitness

I recently purchased my home gym, all in all, it was about $1300.

I bought this half rack - $350

This bench - $100

This bar and set of plates - $250

These Dumbbells - $600

These Rings - $34

This belt - $27

Total if you buy it all today: $1361

I looked to get as much of it as I could while it was on sale, or discounted. I also went to and got something like 15% off a Dick's Sporting Goods gift card, so I got it for an even better price.

It allows me to do basically everything I need to do, and I've bene loving it! Let me know if you have any questions.

I’ve been using this one for months and is really nice.

DMoose Fitness Premium Dip Belt...

u/RofltheWaffle · 5 pointsr/Fitness

I own this one:

It's made by Harbinger, and it's polypropylene. I've had it since May, and there are no real signs of wear. I use it once or twice a week with (so far) 30-50 lbs. I'm sure a good leather one will last longer, but this think seems pretty solid.

u/so_quothe_Kvothe · 5 pointsr/Fitness

Generally you don't weigh yourself with pull-ups, you just do them. Once you start being able to do excessive amounts of pull-ups (which won't happen for a while if you're a novice), you can start adding weight to yourself to make it more challenging. As others have said, you can achieve this through special belts (like this) that you can put standard plates on or by holding dumbbells between your legs or however else you want.

Once you start doing that, you can theoretically add together your body weight + added weight, but most people only talk about added weight since pullups are traditionally a body weight exercise.

Harbinger 360890 4-Inch Nylon Weightlifting Belt

u/Pigeon-Toad · 4 pointsr/Fitness

For $10 extra dollars you could have just bought this. Like you said though it's useful to have a heavy chain and some caribiners lying around.

Harbinger 28900 Polypropylene Weight Dip Belt

u/InkognitoV · 4 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

Get a dip belt and start stacking plates.

Edit: I realize that my suggestion is not pure body weight, but I personally find that being a purist can be quiet limiting.

If you want to stay with pure body weight, L-sit pull ups, Front Lever Pulls, Front Pulls, and Front lever in general. Video on the Front Lever Pulls and Front Pulls

u/trnddwn33 · 4 pointsr/Fitness

Agreed, I got this one for like 20 bucks, had 2x45lb plates on it without issue. Link

u/jimmyw404 · 4 pointsr/Fitness

I got this two months ago and couldn't be happier:

300lbs weight set: $200

power rack + lat pull attachment: $436

2x 45lbs plates: $70

fitness reality bench $80

dip belt $30

dumbbells $200

I looked pretty hard on craigslist for local deals for a few weeks, but it's hard to beat the above prices.

I've been a member of a few gyms, and don't really have horror stories, but it's so much nicer being in complete control of everything.

u/barbellicious · 4 pointsr/xxfitness

What will you be using it for?

I've read that tapered belts are better / more comfortable for olympic lifting, but I don't have any experience with that.

If you plan to ever compete in powerlifting, you'll need a belt that meets specs.

If you want a belt just for general lifting, a velcro belt is probably fine. I used to have one like this before I started powerlifting:

Once I started powerlifting, I tried a pronged leather belt and found it annoying to put on / take off. I got an SBD belt which I love, but it's definitely $$$$. I like that it's adjustable on the fly and has a lever for quick on / off.

SBD belt:

If you have a short torso, lots of people rave about the 3" belt from Best Belts. Most other belts for powerlifting are 4".

About 500lbs of random plates I got cheap. Most of it was bought used but in good condition. Took me a while because I was really patient so I’d find what I wanted.

I’m pretty happy with all of it. I was most concerned with saving space and getting stuff that had high enough weight capacities. I’m not lifting really heavy weights, so it’s all good for me but might not work for everyone.

I’m considering getting a stand or some matts, or maybe a few kettlebells.

u/KalFromCal · 3 pointsr/weightlifting

I personally use a Harbringer 243 4-inch belt I bought it off amazon for around $15. [Link] (

Ilya Ilyin used this belt in the 2012 Olympics.

Another good belt is the eleiko weightlifting belt that is around $50 but it's seems that it is always sold out.

u/larynx1982 · 3 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

> I do the RR on my house as I cannot use my rings or anything at the gym, I cannot do weighted calisthenics, as I do not have the equipment nor can I acquire it.

If you don't want to buy a weight belt for around $10 to do weighted calisthenics you can use a backpack filled with books/water bottles/rocks for pull-ups, dips, rows and push-ups

u/cforres · 3 pointsr/leangains

I use this one. I've only ever had 115 on it so I can't speak for more than that. I've been using it for 2 years now.

u/OiledPelicanEgg · 3 pointsr/nSuns

Depends on your budget. I recently made my first belt purchase and went with this harbinger belt. I went cheap just to see how a belt feels before dropping serious cash down. Now that I've use this belt for a month now I don't see needing to upgrade anytime soon, feels great on heavy deadlifts and squats. A lot of the more experience lifters recommend Inzer Belts if you don't mind spending the cash.

u/PharmFresh · 3 pointsr/nSuns

Agreed. This belt would work great for most people

u/michael2l · 3 pointsr/Fitness

There’s one you can find on amazon for about $30 bucks that works really well. I believe it’s the top rated one.

Here it is looks like it’s gone up in a price a little bit.

u/frostflithbm14 · 3 pointsr/weightroom

Anyone have any recommendations for a first dip belt? I'd like to stay between $25-60 or so and don't need anything too special. HUUUGE plus if it's on amazon prime. Please and thanks Here's what I'm considering now:

u/theoldthatisstrong · 3 pointsr/weightroom

But for only $77 you can get the IronMind De Rigueur Dip Belt on Amazon that's rated at 1000lbs!. ;-)

For context, please see this discussion about the amazing quality and prices of IronMind's products.

And now that I've posted this, I have to admit that I actually do own this dip belt (which is great for hip belt squats too).

u/Nicky4Pin · 3 pointsr/Fitness

this is the dip belt I have.

this is how you use it.

u/morris1022 · 3 pointsr/bodybuilding

u/New_mom_and_dad · 3 pointsr/weightroom

From USA, but this is the one I got from Amazon.

I'm sure you could get it there. I've used it for a few days and really like it. Not sure if it's what you're looking for but hope it helps!

u/Jutt24 · 3 pointsr/Fitness

this one works perfectly for me:

People will say leather is better but mine is holding up very well. I put as much as 70 lbs on it for doing dips. Works great

u/litea11111 · 3 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I'm currently using the [harbinger dip belt] ( for my weighted dips and pull ups. They're of really good quality, although you might want to use a stronger carabiner when you're going very heavy. In general, dip belts are not suitable as weightlifting belts because they do not provide support for your back when doing deadlifts, squats, etc.

u/asiangoliath · 3 pointsr/xxfitness

I spent under $20 on a nylon velcro belt: here, and have been using it pretty regularly for about a year and a half. It works just fine for my purpose. I lift and do crossfit recreationally and plan on starting to do some olympic weightlifting competitions soon. I have no plans to switch to a nicer belt until I need to, and there's been no noticeable wear or tear on the belt using it 1-2x a week.

What I looked for: I mainly wanted a belt to help provide feedback for the valsalva maneuver. I strap it on tight and I push against it and it works just fine. It doesn't provide that much support for my back but I found that my core being tighter helps a lot with that.

u/GiveMeSomeIhedigbo · 3 pointsr/bodybuilding

It's no Inzer, but I picked up this belt from Amazon early this year when I wanted to upgrade from my shitty Valeo belt and it works great.

u/tonto515 · 3 pointsr/bodybuilding

It's definitely necessary on squats and deadlifts the higher and higher you're getting to your 1RM. Especially with squats to maintain core rigidity during the rep. Being able to brace your core against the belt while you're lifting is a big help. I bought this belt a year ago and it's strong and no nonsense. I love it.

u/DoYouEvenRackPull · 3 pointsr/Fitness

Don't you dare get anything but a leather belt or else you're wasting your money. Here's one I found for $40

u/BraveryDave · 2 pointsr/weightlifting
u/GatoAmarillo · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I started using a belt when I reached 300lbs deadlifts for reps and 2 plate squats for reps, though it isn't entirely necessary. It just feels more comfortable to do heavy sets with a belt.

I'm sure there are many people who hit 5 plate deadlifts and 4 plate squats without ever wearing a belt.

This is the belt I use. I have zero complaints about it, works great for me.

u/Duerfen · 2 pointsr/powerlifting

It was this one.

A medium was $35 on sale, base was $50. Very comparable to Inzer belts in my experience.

u/retired_superhero · 2 pointsr/crossfit

Harbinger 23330 5-Inch Firm Fit Foam Core 3-Inch Strap Belt, Large (Black)

u/v_v_ · 2 pointsr/powerlifting

I purchased this belt on amazon for $44 (the one I have is "LIFT", but it's the same OEM). Owned it for nearly a year, and worn it nearly every squat and deadlift training session (4 times a week, basically). It's held up just as nicely as a buddy's Pioneer belt, and functions exactly the same (although it may not be approved for one of the bajillion federations). Even if the holes wear out in a few years, I'd probably still buy another one.

u/TurkeyDinosaurz · 2 pointsr/leangains

I use this one:

Very comfy and easy to attach weights. But it has no size adjustment so might be hard or impossible to put on for those with a lotta fat to lose.

u/icos211 · 2 pointsr/bodybuilding

Levi's 541s. Changed my life. Sometimes you'll find a pair at a Ross, Marshalls or TJ Maxx for like $15-20, but regular price they are about $50. As for a belt, I use this and love it. Quality and construction are A-OK.

u/CalvinHobbes · 2 pointsr/Fitness



I think these are what you are looking for?

u/ayo_olu · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

No problem, man. I would get a dip belt. A weighted vest can be cumbersome because it can be a hassle to lug around to the gym and to microload with weight. It could also be hard to breathe in. They are extremely expensive, too. This is the cheapest high quality belt I found that will never break:

The reason why I say "never break" is because a lot of those leather belts break, lol.

I use it and it's great. It allows for so much flexibility in how you adjust the weight against your body because of the decently long chain and two carabiners that come with it. It's comfortable as well. Importantly, I'm still able to maintain my hollow during weighted chin ups.

I put the chain through the plate that I'm using. I then count down to the sixth chain link from the top and hook that link itself onto the carabiner on the left. Then I hook the carabiner on the right onto the left carabiner. It makes for a very efficient set up. I wish I had some pics to show you what I'm talking about. Maybe I'll post pics when I get home or something.

u/BrianBeNice · 2 pointsr/udub

If it's not too expensive you can always buy a solid Velcro belt from Amazon. I've seen some guys squat 200+ kilos in them and they hold up well. It's a solid investment if you are getting into weightlifting.

u/scorpionMaster · 2 pointsr/Fitness
u/KeplerNeel · 2 pointsr/bodybuilding

I have this one. No complaints it's just a simple belt

u/SceneScenery · 2 pointsr/weightroom

I'm a big fan of the belt I bought five years ago. It's similar to this one.

The belts at mylocal sporting goods store felt too flimsy or weren't good for lifting (thick in the back, thin in the front--you know the type) Try as many as you can before buying.

u/jhowlett · 2 pointsr/bodyweightfitness

I bought this about 6 months ago
AMAZON harbinger belt

its held up well, the only thing is the chain is a little short, but I'm able to fit a 35lbs plate no problem (Not sure a 45lbs would fit, maybe a 35+weight).

u/killer_by_design · 2 pointsr/weightlifting

Don't know the exact brand but I have a feeling it's this style Amazon link

Its narrower in front and on the sides to provide more for lumbar support and doesn't impede your range of motion.

Also he has two different belts in the two photos the one on the right is more likely this style Nylon Rogue one Rogue link seems he maybe chooses his belts for the specific lift he's performing? From my limited knowledge (none) of nylon belts they give you an even greater range of motion whilst still adding support.

u/fu_gravity · 2 pointsr/weightlifting

The nylon and velcro Harbinger belts have the benefit of not being super thick or overly supportive, light weight, and they have a very simple overlap buckle + velcro closure. You can also pick one up at Walmart, Target, Amazon, etc... and they are very inexpensive (plus I've seen them used by a lot of really strong folks).

Many of the ones sold online are the 5-inch which is 7mm over IWF regulations. Go for the 4-inch model like this one

u/FolkSong · 2 pointsr/Fitness

You can also buy pullup belts that will probably be more comfortable than just a rope.

I use this one.

u/PM_ME_UR_YOGA_BOOTY · 2 pointsr/crossfit

I have a belt which I use when we have decent weighted barbells in a wod that has a larger number of reps in a row of a particular movement(Grace, DT etc). I also use it during strength portion of class. This is the belt I use, it was cheap and has been effective

u/r0rsch1ch · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I bought this one for ~$60 and it's doing a pretty good job so far

Stoic Belt (Amazon)

u/freakazeud · 2 pointsr/crossfit

I have this Harbinger one and love it. It stays nice and tight for pure lifting but isn't obtrusive for WODing. The buckle is small enough to not be annoying and press somewhere but strong enough to hold it nice and tight. The velcro is solid and comes in very handy when you just want to rip of the belt and put it back on fast during some WODs like deadlifts/running or something like that. Would highly recommend especially for the price. It's similar to the valeo one but doesn't have a plastic buckle which I've heard is the point of failure on that one and I like that the Harbinger one is uniform width all around and not going wider towards the back. Just fits better for me and again less obtrusive.

u/azureleaf17 · 2 pointsr/Fitness

If you're just looking for an exercise to which you can add weight, do you have the option of adding weight to your pull-ups? A dip belt was one of the best investments I've ever made.

u/RhinoMan2112 · 2 pointsr/homegym

I got this Harbringer on amazon a while ago and it's been great. I usually try to get the best quality everything but like you said I didn't wanna break the bank on a dip belt. Definitely recommend it!

u/Tree-eeeze · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I got this one from Amazon about 8 months back.

Never had any issues with it, and have had up to 60lbs on it but I'm sure it could handle more.

u/InTheScannerDarkly · 2 pointsr/weightroom

I bought something like this belt back in 2013. I still have it.

u/spectre02 · 2 pointsr/Fitness

There's one on amazon for $27 that I have and it works really well. Ive used up to 75lbs so far with no signs of wear.


u/captainsnide · 2 pointsr/veganfitness is what I use in the gym. A little pricey but vegan (yay!) and no metal parts to damage kettlebells/plates/etc. Fits nicely in my bag as well.

u/PAPaddy · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I have this 10mm belt at 5'11" 185lbs, it's in the second to tightest holes, I wear 33" jeans. Great support, wearing in nicely. Not sure the 13mm would provide much more for me except be harder to break in. I find this belt is just soft enough not to cut into me on dead lifts. I wear it a little higher for deads after following Alan Thrall's advice.

u/Matuas · 2 pointsr/crossfit

I picked up this one about a month ago - relatively cheap, shipped quick, and has been a great belt so far

u/iceduck · 2 pointsr/Fitness

I totally agree with you. I personally use a Dip Belt to lift 45lbs for dips and pull-ups.
My backpack didn't feel as secure and I'm pretty sure the mass distribution of a 45lbs weight in a bag isn't optimal and could rip the bag off.

u/mrstacktrace · 1 pointr/homegym

u/zerosp4c3 · 1 pointr/gainit

Thanks! I got a cheap Valeo like this one from some sports store in town, it's stiff but I found to be pretty uncomfortable. I'll look into buying a new belt, about time for an upgrade I think.

u/Doritos2458 · 1 pointr/Fitness

I'd take a look at this one. They are a small company that seems like they are just starting out. I bought one, and then got an email from one of the co-owners thanking me, and saying I have lifetime guarantee / free replacement on the belt, plus a 90% off any other products they make in the future. Right now, thats not many, but they just sent out an email to the registered customers saying they were making lifting straps and wrist straps as well soon, in addition to clothing. Really awesome customer service

The belt itself is solid. Feels (and smells nicely) like genuine leather. Not like that cardboard-y imitation leather you see some "leather" products are made of. Not to mention, when you order it, its not ultra stiff. I can take a picture of mine when I get home, if you want proof.

u/RailsIsAGhetto · 1 pointr/Fitness

Can't guarantee it will fit through every approx. 1" hole since they can vary but I use this one and it fits everything I've ever tried:

u/SgtOScrotBags · 1 pointr/Fitness

You need to bulk. If you don't have access to to the gym do pullups/chinups, and dips to start. Eventually when you get better and stronger, start using weight.

u/Lumberjack1286 · 1 pointr/Fitness

This is the belt I use. Doesn’t have to be anything super crazy. This belt has great reviews, and I absolutely love it as well.

As for when to start using a belt, it depends on the strength of your core and back. The more you use a belt, the more you potentially weaken these muscles because they aren’t handling as much of a load. I feel fairly comfortable up to 315, beyond that, I really like the extra support.

u/Ktnmoo · 1 pointr/ManyBaggers

Looking to buy a relatively lightweight, but well-constructed gym duffel. Around $100.

It'll need to be large enough able to fit a pair of shoes (preferably in its own shoe compartment), some clothes, a few microplates, a chin-up belt, and a neutral handle grip for rowing. But no ideally no larger than necessary.

I'm thinking something in the vein of some of the popular Nike or Adidas duffels, but better quality.

Parlettes look like an awesome addition, I'll definitely get some of those! Is there anything I should be looking for when choosing which parallettes to get? edit: I think I might get this one, it looks like it would be good for normal parlettes exercises, but then also dips and rows, and even attaching rings to for pushups.

I looked at this dip belt, but saved it for later since I'd also need weights and my progression isn't yet at that level & I'd also need some weights.

If you're pretty serious about lifting and wanting to increase your strength, then I would recommend getting yourself a quality belt. I use a 4" belt that isn't tapered. I recommend not using a tapered belt, because front support is just as important as rear support. It's not just for your lower back. A Proper belt gives your stomach something to push against when it's full of air. The inward force of the belt pushes your gut against your spine to support it.

I just recently bought this belt and I love it.

If someone was wearing a squat suit and squatting 225, then that person is ignorant. Do you know if it was actually a squat suit or was it just a singlet? I've never seen anyone use a squat suit unless they're squatting 1,000+ lbs.

Really stupid question - how do I wear a dip belt? Just got this one and I've just been attaching the carabiners to each D-ring, but it feels quite insecure...

I do have a leather weightlifting belt but prefer not to use it. I would rather grow stronger slower than rely on it at the lighter weights I am currently lifting. If I ever get back to intermediate level/competitive numbers, I will consider using it. Until then, it's breathing and bracing.

Awesome! I saw on one of the Amazon reviews someone asked if it would be good for someone with a 28" waist, and someone responded and said it wouldn't. I have a 29" waist so I'm just curious if you'd still recommend it? If so, I may go ahead and pull the trigger. Here's the one I'm looking at:

I use one of these and they are great:

Less than $10.00 more, leather with heavy duty hardware, comfortable, and lifetime replacement.

I'm leaning to something like this

I know people love to hate kinobody, but his dipping belt is the best I have ever used. I used harbinger and another one that i forget on amazon and kinobody has the best one.

I used to use a jump rope to tie through smaller weights. Bought a big boy chained belt when I moved up to a plate. big boy belt

I got this one recently and it seems solid. Comes in several colors, I got it in blue which doesn't appear to be available at the moment.

My husband uses this one (we ordered it directly from Amazon) - for dips mainly. I've used it for pull-ups before too, and it seemed to work just fine for me. It's also fairly inexpensive compared to a lot of others, so that was the main reason behind the initial purchase. :)

Anyone have this MiR dip belt?

My poor man's velcro belt set up isn't working to well with 45s

u/mattgs618 · 1 pointr/Fitness

This is what I use, it's not too expensive, $27. I've put up to 135 lbs on it with no problems.

u/resetallthethings · 1 pointr/Fitness

Got one of these in December.

probably one of the best budget offering out there.

u/stevil30 · 1 pointr/homegym

i use this

and you're probably right.. i like the idea of building a more stable platform and an extra pulley right underneath so pull goes straight down.

This thing is great: Brute belt -

No chains, sold build, super comfortable, easy use with carabineers, highly versatile, and easily fits in my bag. Look no further.

u/Pr0veIt · 1 pointr/xxfitness

This is really helpful and thank you for the thorough reply!! I'm going to try this 4" and this one. But now that I've read your reply I may try a nylon alternative.

I wonder if the fuss about leather being necessary for powerlifting has to do with the very heavy weights that male lifters are encountering. If I were doing an 800lb deadlift, rather than 260, maybe I'd want something more substantial.

Sounds like I just need to test out a bunch of options and go with what feels right.

I have this one and it's great:

It's much more padded than other belts, the webbing has rubber on it which is a nice touch, and it has a separate belt loop so you don't get pinched by the chain.
