homemade dip belt - any thoughts

I'm wondering if I could make a homemade dip belt with some stuff I've got around my house. Any suggestions?

I'm thinking it would be a good idea after today's WOD of weighted pullups. Putting a heavy dumbbell between my legs isn't working that great.

Thanks for any input

John

1" tubular webbing. Toss a water knot in it and you're good to go!

I've just been using a section of chain with a snap link in it. Works great.

Are you attaching that to a weight lifting belt?

Go to your local fire dept ask for about 3' of old hose 1 3/4 or 2 1/2. Buy snap links and chain at hardware store. Cut belt and chain "to fit". Thread chain through hose. I have used this to hang 180# -steel plates. Works like a champ. If you want to use DB ad a quick link to lock it in by the handle. total should be less than 10$

I just use a weightlifting belt and a 3 ft piece of rope.

All great ideas, thank you.

shouldn't be hard at all to get a section of hose since I'm a firefighter.

Re: homemade dip belt - any thoughts

I just use my nylon webbing strap, that I use for my rings, and run it through my kettlebells and then just wrap it around my waist. It seems like it wouldn't stay on, but I did the weighted pull ups last night and it just hangs from your waist and the kettlebells hang between your feet.

It is also nice because you can easily adjust the length, to rest the weights on plyo box, so you can pull from a dead hang.
