If you have multiple sources it's more managable.

As you've seen from my vids I do weight belt, backpack, weight vest and if I need to a neck weight. You can always add in a DB between the feet as well. I don't know if you have access to those kinds of resources to add weight to yourself.

I've strapped on 160 to my waist before with a real belt... you just gotta waddle around and it's kinda awkward. But it still works... you're not strapping on the weight for comfort... it's gonna feel awkward except when you're actually dipping or doing pullups.

Usually the ones that handle the heavy weight are the leather ones.. nylon seems like it tears easier. That's the one I have now which is why I haven't loaded it up past 100 lbs yet.
