Where to buy weight belt to do pull ups

I see people using a weight belt and either hanging a kettlebell or weight plates from it, while doing pull ups. Where do you buy a really good one from?

Thanks

Working on doing weighted negatives so I can do one pull up.

We just use a loop of retired climbing webbing Nan. I have no doubt that places like ironmind sell them though.

The best one I know of is from IronMind. This will last a lifetime and will hold a truck.

Dicks, Play it Again Sports, most sports stores and On Line has weight belts your you can make your own. i. e. weight lifting belt, piece of chain, some type of clasp.

Iron Mind makes some of the best stuff in the world, also most expensive.

Buy what works, but don't over buy.

I've had mine for probably almost a decade. I doubt I'll ever need to replace it. It's lightweight, doesn't jingle about in your gym bag, is very comfortable and wears like iron. All for $60! Sometimes it's not price that matters, it's value.

Re: Where to buy weight belt to do pull ups

I carry around a martial arts belt (it happens to be a green one borrowed from a mate) and you just loop it through what you want to dangle between your legs, tie a bow in it and pull one side of the bow through. That way when you want to release it all you have to do is pull a single piece of belt and watch your toes if you're not a midget like me!

Re: Where to buy weight belt to do pull ups

I've never used Ironmind, but if they're into O-lifting they must be pretty good.

I buy from Elitefts (online). You could buy something from Dicks or Sports Authority, but they always seem to be lacking in quality. Thats something especially important when you're looking for things like squat/dl belts and things that will take a beating. I suppose a belt for hanging weights might be ok from you're local sporting store at the mall.

Am I the only one that doesn't particularly like the idea of doing weighted negatives before Nan gets the first real pull up?

IMO, work the jumping PU, normal negatives, assisted, etc. But doing weighted negatives can be very physical on joints that probably aren't ready for such stress, IMO.
