Best Hip Belt?

I'm going to add hip belt squats to my routine. Is there a particular brand that is clearly the best?

Thanks,

David

My personal opinion. Hands down the Iron Mind Hip Belt. Buy a carabiner to go with it as well as a loading pin. Costs a little, but like all Iron Mind products you'll never need another in this lifetime.

it is worth paying a little more for a good hip belt--i bought 2 cheap dip belts from "sports authority". both belts snapped as the weight got heavy -only 140 lbs!!!

with hip belt squats you will probably be using a lot more weight so i would go with a very heavy duty belt--

The Ironmind dipping belt is suffice for belt squats and less fuss than the hip belt. It holds up to 1000lbs .

I got to 500lbs on the belt squat using this belt thread through discs. Ive also got the loading pin but it tends to allow the weight to swing on each rep & threw the feel of the exercise on the glutes rather than the quads. ( just my opinion )

Ironmind's belt is the best and this set up is awesome.

I'm just now getting started on it. I tried a set of TSC similar to what Drew Baye has described and they're brutal. I plan on hitting them again tomorrow. I really like how they feel, I believe I'll add them as a regular part of my routine.

David,

FYI only.

Isometrics possibly recruit more motor units than eccentrics or concentrics. Forget TSC as prescribed by Ken Hutchins. Do a maximal isometric hold for 10 seconds, wait 10-30 seconds, then follow with rest pause 85-95 % single reps of no more than 5 reps. The isometrics will cause post activation potential, which is the next great pre-exhaust technique that actually works to build usable strength. This strictly uses the alactic anaerobic energy pathway. The single reps may be done eccentric -emphasized.
I'm experimenting with this new form of pre-exhaust. I'm currently using the infimetric bar on the Nautilus multi-bi/tri machines to enable the isometric stop. Then I add lots of weight to do rest pause negative-emphasized single reps.
