    As fun as it is pinching a dumbbell between my knees/shins...it's not. Links would be appreciated.

    I looked for a free shipping code too...didn't find anything.

    I can get one of these: http://www.flexcart.com/members/elitefts/default.asp?m=PD&cid=114&pid=1782 for $30.2x shipped or two of the ones you posted for $52.01 shipped.

    My only problem is that I've purchased LARGE items (e.g. TV's online) and haven't paid anything for shipping, so it kills me to pay $20 for 2 dip belts.

    I do dips on chest day, which is after leg day. Cramping hamstrings + tearing the hair off of your legs while trying to focus on your dips != fun.
