There’s been a lot of hype around belt squats as of late, and for good reason; they work.

Here’s a breakdown of why they’re the greatest thing since sliced bread, and what they can do for your training:

  • No upper body
    The belt squat totally removes stress on your spine and upper body from the equation, allowing you to just train your lower body. Even a leg press still places a load on your torso, taking the weight off your torso allows you to give your upper body a break, or even work around injuries.
  • Glute activation
    The belt squat really emphasizes hip extension resulting in excellent glute activation, which will ensure your buns will be as jacked as your guns.
  • Not just belt squats
    The belt squat machine can be used for a variety of exercises, such as rows, Romanian deadlifts, tricep extensions and high pulls, which make the square foot trade-off for the machine a little better.
  • Superior bushings on pivot points for a smooth movement
  • Adjustable band pegs for added dynamic resistance
  • Top and bottom pegs for adding banded resistance
  • 51 inches long, 52″ wide, 40″ tall and the base is 35.5″ wide
  • Includes heavy duty belt with 2 feet of chain and 2 caribeners
  • Adjustable jcups
  • Black powder coating
  • Weigh’s in at a beefy 264lbs and ships unassembled in 2 boxes
  • Made of 60 x 60 mm steel 3mm thick with 8mm connection plates/ 2.3″ x 2.3″ 11 gauge steel with 0 gauge connection plates
  • Optional side of top loaded plate pegs
  • Freestanding standalone unit that does not need to be mounted

So now that you know why the belt squat is so awesome, let me lay down why the Bells of Steel belt squat is your best choice

  • Inexpensive
    As of this post, there’s currently only 1 other home gym gade belt squat, for the most part, they’re huge footprint behemoths made with bomb proof steel that sell for thousands of dollars, not ideal for the average garage gym. You also get a belt for squatting, saving you another $100.
  • Innovative design
    Band pegs are something we try and slip into a lot of our products, they’re an inexpensive addition and add a lot of versatility to the product. The belt squat is no exception, with 4 adjustable band pegs.  In addition, the connection arm has a thick screw with an eyelet to be a secure & reliable attachment point for your belt squat belt.
  • Bushings for a smoother ride
    Using 6 bushings, 4 on the primary pivot point, 2 on the safety, allows for much smoother motion, as well as substantially more durable and safer than a simple bolt.

Good Buy at This Price Point

Website/Ordering - Website is intuitive and informative. Ordering process was easy. While I did receive a notice that the product had been shipped, I wasn’t given a tracking number or anticipated delivery date. Packaging - Packaging was good and the parts were well wrapped within the packaging. Assembly - Instructions were about as bad as most. If you have done something like this before assembly is fairly intuitive, although because of the way the way certain of the parts fit, it would have been helpful to describe the order in which they go together. Four bolts/nuts/washers were missing. Easy to replace but a nuisance for me as I live 1/2 hour from the nearest hardware store. Fit and Finish - The powder coat came chipped in several pieces. The welds are a little insubstantial and not as clean as certain other manufacturers, but not terrible. The J cups should have some sort of rubber cushioning to prevent scratching. As it is, the powder coat on the cross piece and J cups is scratching off with each use. Bearings seem sturdy and the frame easily supports as much weight as most would probably need. Overall - Our home gym is equipped with equipment from Rogue, Power Strength, Titan, Body Solid, Tag Fitness, BC Strength and Mark Fitness. In terms of substance and craftsmanship, I would rank the Bells of Steel Belt Squat slightly below the mid-range. Across a broad range of size and strength profiles, I would put functionality in the top quartile. At this price point it probably offers the best value for the money of the options available.

First timer

New to the belt squat, didn’t know these even existed until I ordered one. I’ve been having some lower back issues and not sure of the cause, but figured one area I can try to prevent some issues would be heavy back squats. I’ve used the machine enough to know it is different but in a good way. I’ll still throw in lighter weight barbell squats but for heavier use the belt machine will be my go to. Fast service

Well built with one exception

Well built machine with one exception. There are about 16 holes that have an M12 threaded tapped hole that are what you bolt the bearings to. The treads were not cleaned out properly on all of the holes and I ended up damaging two of the M12 x 30 bolts. Had to go get a M12 thread tap and two new bolts to be able to finish assembling the machine. Minor inconvenience for me but that is because I am familiar with building this type of equipment. Someone who is no so experienced would have been in trouble. Other than that I like the machine. Very robust and will handle the weight. It definitely hits different muscles that other machines don’t. I have lower back issues and you don’t need a weight belt to squat in this machine. Definitely back friendly. Very happy with this purchase

Commercial Set up and use of the belt squat

My members love it! It’s a little crooked but does not affect the movement.

  • My Fitness Goal Is: Help my people get leaner stronger and jacked w less load on spine

Hey there, Thank you for the review. If the belt squat is a little crooked loosing the bolts and re adjusting the position can make it perfectly straight again. Hope you and your members enjoy the gainz! Yours in strength, William & the BOS crew
