5 Benefits Of Dip Belt Squats
The dip belt is a great training tool that I started using many years ago when I had a back injury and my back was so bad that I couldn’t do a barbell squat or deadlift.
This type of lifting involved very little spinal compression yet it still gave my legs and hips a great workout.
From here I found this to be a useful tool and I still use it in my own training and with athletes.
5 Benefits Of Dip Belt Squats:
- Very joint friendly. Great for people with lower back issues (no spinal compression) or shoulder issues
- It is a great recovery assistance exercise. This can be done between squat/deadlift days to improve recovery without taxing the joints or the CNS
- Hits the lower body with minimal upper body
- Targets the Hips/Quads/Glutes depending on your squat/hinge variation
- Simple & easy exercise to do. Low chance of injury.
If your are dealing with an injury or just looking for another great exercise to add to your training tool box I highly recommend the hip belt squat.
