From pain-free squats to insane quad pumps, the Belt Squat Machine does it all — without loading your torso or spine.

Whether you want to build your quads to squat more (or just be able to squat, period), this back-friendly Belt Squat Machine will actually have you excited for leg day.

Benefits of the Belt Squat Machine

    Barbell back squats are great, but back issues and upper-body injuries can leave you doing diddly-squat for months (or years)… until now! This belt squat machine transfers the load from your back onto your hips, so you can squat with ZERO spinal loading or upper body involvement. But don’t take our word for it; a research study using a similar lever-style belt squat machine found that “Belt squats may be a suitable alternative to back squats in order to avoid stressing low back or trunk musculature.” So, grab your squat shoes and belt up. It’s time to squat heavy again! 🏋🏻‍♀️
    If you want a huge squat, you need strong quads (source). And to target them effectively, you need to squat deep enough. So, it makes us pull our hair out when we see belt squat machines that don’t even let you squat to parallel (SERIOUSLY, whyyy?!) But with our Belt Squat Machine, the plate pegs (weight horns) can be mounted vertically, so your weight plates don’t bottom out on the floor before you go ATG. The platform also has a center cut-out to allow the middle beam another couple inches of depth, letting you squat deep enough that you’ll finish your set saying, “Oh my QUAD!”
    It’s no surprise that standalone belt squat machines aren’t cheap. Just look at some of our competitors, where you’ll pay at least $2,000… BEFORE shipping fees. Our Belt Squat Machine was made to be the best bang-for-your-buck option — intelligently designed while still being affordable enough for home gym enthusiasts. But if you’d prefer something compact and more economical, no biggie! You’ll probably dig the Belt Squat Lever Arm Rack Attachment 😎

Built Like A Tank

This belt squat machine is built like a tank and boasts an impressive 700lb capacity. Its 264lb weight, 11-gauge steel frame, fully-welded platform and 3mm thick top make it stable enough to use as a standalone unit. So when leg day rolls around, you’ll be ready to go to war 💪🏻

Highly Versatile Machine

This belt squat machine was specifically built for belt squats (duh), but it’s actually a one-stop (exercise) shop. From deadlifts to split squats and rows to bicep curls, the amount of movements you can do with cable attachments is only limited by your creativity. For ultra-creative souls, check out our Cable Tower.

Better Than DIY Setups

There’s no shortage of DIY belt squat setups that save money. But beyond the cost savings, a standalone belt squat machine will beat almost every DIY version. The setup is faster, the movement is safer, and the gains are more transferrable to back squatting — it’s a win-win-win.

Adjustable To Your Liking

The j-cups have 13 adjustable heights to fit a variety of lifters. Add some resistance bands to the band pegs for more tension. You can mount the plate pegs horizontally for easier plate unloading or vertically to reduce the overall machine width by 28.5″ (#spacegainzzz).

Now you know why the belt squat machine is so awesome, here's why the Bells of Steel Belt Squat Machine is your best choice.

  • Inexpensive
    As of this post, there’s currently only 1 other home gym-grade option. For the most part, the other belt squat machines are 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 $50-100.
  • 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. This belt squat machine is no exception, featuring 4 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.
  • Ultra-Smooth Bushings
    Using 6 bushings (4 on the primary pivot point & 2 on the safety) allows for much smoother motion, as well as being substantially more durable and safer than simple bolts.

Heavy duty

Pretty great tbh. I’d like to see the middle bar replaced by two ADJUSTABLE handles on each side (knurled of course 😋). Then, if there were some kind of leaver system to allow the weight arm to be held in place while the safety arm is pulled out of the way for j cup adjustments (changing heights for high traffic use). If y’all haven’t, come out with some elevation for people to stand on to allow greater ROM. I cut up some stall mats and it worked great.

Belt squat

The machine is fine, good quality steel and welds…Belt squatting is a bit of an acquired taste for anyone accustomed to conventional barbell squats… Mounting and dismounting is a bit of a nuisance, it would be nice if that issue could be engineered out of the equation… It will take several workouts before you find your sweet-spot with the machine, as well as belt placement on the body… The belt must be just on top of your butt…. There should have been grab-handles on either side of the uprights and height adjustable having the uprights taller… The weight loading attachments must be vertical, otherwise the 45 lb plates will hit the floor before you reach the bottom of exercise… All that said, it’s nice not have the weight bearing down on my back, as it does with barbell squats and the next day squat hang-over and body stiffness… If you’re over 40, and been lifting for a couple of decades, you’ll know what I mean… As for other exercises that can be done with the machine e.g. curls, rows, tricep extensions … Well these are a bit of an advertising stretch from my perspective, as this machine moves on a lever and these exercise movements don’t lend themselves to such movement. You’ll know what I mean if you try them. Overall I’m satisfied with its intended purpose, squatting
