If dips and pull-ups are no longer presenting your body with the challenge you want, these belts can help ensure you can effectively continue your strength conditioning by allowing you to load up with some weight plates before performing those exercises.
Of all the options on our list, the Kinobody Ultimate, Iron Bull Strength Advanced, and Brute Training System Nylon are the most versatile. Because they secure closed around the wearer and have multiple anchor points, they can be used for pulling and dragging exercises that many others can't.
While traditionally many of these were made with chains, these days you will find some options with nylon straps, which we think makes for a more comfortable user experience, not to mention completely avoids the possibility of rust. If you thought a nylon strap couldn't support as much as a metal chain, think again. Just take a look at the IronMind De Rigueur, which is rated for a mind-boggling 1,000 pounds and has the maximum capacity of any item on our list. However, if you still prefer the traditional style, we have included the DMoose Fitness Premium, RDX WBN-6DP, Fire Team Fit Dip, Rip Toned 6-Inch, and Harbinger Polypropylene.
Schiek L5008 While we aren't the biggest fans of leather dip belts when it comes to comfort, there is no arguing their durability and longevity, and this model excels in both those areas. It features a heavy-duty chain and carabiners, and has decent padding on the back and hip areas. schiek.com
Rogue Dip Belt A favorite of many powerlifters and often used in competition at the CrossFit Games, this belt is a popular choice that is nearly unbreakable. It comes in various colors, has a three-inch width that won't restrict your movement, and utilizes secure locking carabiners. roguefitness.com
