I decided to buy the ironmind dip belt, however, I am not quite sure how to use it. Any photos or suggestions? Thanks!

Did you buy it new? They used to come with a whole booklet on what to do with 'em.

You loop the blue strap thing through the weight plate or whatever you're using, then through the buckle. It took me a couple times to figure it out too. I had to mess around w/ it for a little bit.

Lynne-It comes w/ a piece of paper on what the belt is, but doesn't show how to use it.

I tie a loop in the bottom of the belt and use a carabiner to attach a wieght pin. Works great! I've also looped it around the handle of a kettlebell (obviously no carabiner here) and that works well too.

frank, you could always make a loading pin for it.

a simple piece 7mm or greater piece of climbing accessory cord will do the job. just tie it into a loop, and then girth-hitch it to the weight plate(s)/kettlebell. use a carabiner to clip it to the dip belt.

Jason - thanks. They must have changed their packaging; they used to come with a nice little booklet that showed how to set it up, some exercises, etc.

***IMPORTANT***

Frank,

Basically, you run the web through the weight and then back up the buckle. This forms a sort of "V" down to the weight and completely avoids your twig and berries; very nice. ALWAYS thread the webbing back through the buckle! Only threading one way is not secure and could easily lead to injury.

Let us know when you're ring dipping with 100% of bodyweight attached. :biggrin:
