Add resistance beyond your body weight to supercharge dips, chins and lunges. APT Dipping Belts are the perfect addition to your workout routine.

Are you looking to add resistance to your exercises reaching for a dip belt could be the added benefit to all your needs?  APT Pro Lifting Gear has numerous belts available

If you look around a gym you will see someone who is using a dipping belt.  It adds that extra resistance to help you build more strength in an exercise.  Dips of course, added weight to pull ups or chin ups and an Old School favorite Squats and calf raises.

Dips With a Dipping Belt and Weighed Dips.

Dipping belt as the name suggests is primarily used to add weight to your dips.  When doing dips adding extra weight is an easy with the use of the dipping belt and it will isolate the chest, shoulders and triceps muscles.  Slowly add weight and master the dip prior to adding additional weight.  Once you get to the bars secure your dipping belt around your waist add the weight desired slowly descend until your elbows are 90 degrees and return to your starting position, if desired bend your legs to help with positioning.

Pull-ups or Chin-ups

A second way to use the belt is to add weight to your pull-ups or chin-ups.  This will primarily isolate the back muscles it will also work your biceps and lats (latissimus Dorsi).  Deciding to add weight to your pull-up or chin-up will most definitely increase your load and challenge you.

Dipping Squats and Calf Raises

An old school exercise to add a dimension to your workout is the dipping Squat.  A word of caution be prepared to feel this.  I was skeptical when I saw it but have since added it to my training.  First, determine the weight you’re going to use and stand shoulder width apart (if available stand on a plate with each foot and this will help facilitate the squat) Push back, bend your knees and squat down until your knees are bent to 90 degrees or more. Stand back up and repeat.  For that added extra to a calf raises, let the weight hang, step on an elevate platform or plate and execute a calf raise.
