    How does the dip belt stay attached to your waist? Can you use one for pullups?

    i think it uses a carabiner, and you just have to make it tight enough. yes.

    I think today I'm going to stick a 25lb plate inside my regular belt for pullups. I'll need to get a real dip belt soon

    As long as there is some sort of loop and the weight goes between your legs it is not going to fall off of you.

    I just take a dumbell and scoop it off with my foot. I suppose this would be hard on a high pullup bar, though. I just use the lower assisted pullup station and move the knee pad out of the way.

    Do you bend your knees? It seems like it would be hard to hold a dumbell for dips. I've done it for pullups before though.

    I did it. First set I had a 10lb plate over my crotch. next two sets I had a 10 on each side of my hips. Worked ok. I don't want a 25 lb on my crotch though when I move up 5lbs :rofl:

    I've only done it with pullups for a few reps. I've been doing it for dips for the past three works. It's not hard at all. I don't think I bend my knees a lot though.. I have been using 30 lbs. I started wearing my chucks this week and it is much easier to hold the dumbell with those than my nike shoes.

    I don't blame you for not wanting 25 lbs there :rofl: I could see you bumping the weight in the wrong spot and flailing off the dip station haha.

    it feels good having a couple 35 pound plates hanging just in front of you balls when you do dips.
