    Anyone use chains for dips?

    Used them for the first time the other day. I liked it a lot. I have no idea how much the weighed though. So I guess my next question is where can I buy some?

    It's a 3/8 chain and each link weighs about a pound.

    Honestly using chains for dips instead of plates just makes you look like you are trying to hard to be hardcore.

    Chains have their place in lifting. Dips isn't one of them.

    I agree with pillar. Guys who use chains around their neck for dips look like toolbags trying to look cool. Get a dip belt instead.
