Weightlifting Chains for progressive resistance
to help you skyrocket your lifts.
Chains are an amazing training tool to help you break through plateaus and get stronger!
Similar to resistance bands the chains you are lifting progressively become heavier, providing maximum muscular stimulation throughout the entire range of motion.
For example, you may be able to do a quarter squat with 600 lbs, but you may be able to only full squat 400 pounds. With chains, you can make it so the weight at the top is 600lbs, and as you squat down, more chains will pile onto the floor, making the load lighter.
They also look and sound totally badass.
A “set” consists of two large chains, two small connecting chains and two quick links.
You get added versatility with two extra-long, 3/16 x 72″ attaching chains. The extra length allows you to adjust up to a full standing length of 8 feet or adjust as short as you prefer. The attaching chain goes through any link in the larger chain and connects to form a complete loop that slips over the ends of the bar.
Or, you can just buy additional strips of just chain to your existing set.

- quality chains
Great so far - not a tonne of use, but it's coming.
Shopped the competitors and so glad I went with Bells of Steel. Chains arrived quickly and are everything you’d expect. Solid product, fair pricing, seamless service. Already looking to purchase more.
These are great. They are easy to hook up and use. Only issue with them (minor) is that the blue "paint: rubs off on one's hands.
I've been eyeballing these chains for a while and due to a recent bonus, the door opened up. While I did mark the production condition as "beat up boxes", these chains are thick enough a beat up box ain't going to do any damage or take away from these chains.
Good news: I got the 23lb chains. I like the 23lb chains. They're great for benching. Bad news: Now I want more chains. (The box was slightly "beat up" but it's not like you could really make an impact on these chains. It took nothing away from the product to be honest).
