I considered buying this because it was getting pretty difficult to reach failure with one set of body weight pullups. I really needed to find something that could make pull-ups more of a challenge. I purchased this GYMREAPERS weighted belt about a month ago. The shipping was relative fast. It took about 3 days. The first time I used it I put a 25-pound plate and it. It handled the weight really well. The chain could probably hold about four or five plates depending on how big they are.
At first, I was a little disappointed because it was slipping off my waist as I was doing pull-ups. I was worried I would have to send it back. I connect one carabiner to the other side as a work around. However, I realized that the back pad was still new and a little stiff. So, by bending it a little and working out the stiffness it started working normally. I also noticed that it started to get a lot more comfortable to wear during lifts.
For the price it seems like the quality is extremely high. It is made from very tough material. The stitching is pretty strong and does not seem like it will wear out anytime soon. I was also happy with the chain. It is the heavy kind not cheaply made, so I think whatever weight you can fit it would likely hold.
I also like the design. I have borrowed other weight belts and seen a lot of bland solid color belts. The design does a good job of adding character and uniqueness to the belt. It has a great look. In summary I am very satisfied with this…
