Belted Squats

Not every gym will have a hip loaded belted squat rack. You can recreate this exercise using a dip belt. This removes the stress of weight on your spine as present in a rear loaded squat and removes the limitation of how much weight you can hold in a front squat.

  1. Place weight on dip belt around waist. Step up onto boxes or benches spaced apart; foot on each one. Arms can be extended forward throughout exercise.
  2. Squat down by bending knees and sitting hips back, keeping back straight and knees pointed same direction as feet. Descend until thighs are just past parallel to floor.
  3. Ascend by extending knees and hips until legs are straight.
  4. Return and repeat.
