Dip belts to add resistance to your exercises cost anywhere from $15 to $50. Chances are you already have something at home that can be converted into one – for free.
A while ago I showed you how to make pull-ups more difficult with the help of a backpack.
I realized it’s not always the most comfortable method to get more difficulty into the exercise. Simply putting a plate on a dip belt and strapping it to yourself can be faster and, in my case, less hazardous to the surrounding furniture and wallpaper.
I headed over to Amazon to check out available dip belts and two things hit me at once: a) golly, those are expensive, prices are anywhere between fifteen to fifty dollars, and b) that’s just a leather belt, lacking the holes to hold your pants up.
Rummaging through my wardrobe I came up with the low-cost solution:
Ok, One Belt Might Be Enough…
Let me stress it again: one belt can suffice. As long as you aren’t uncomfortable with something really heavy swinging in front of a very sensitive region of your body.
