The Rogue Chain Kit comes in 10-pound lengths with 1/2-inch chains and 15-pound lengths of 5/8-inch chains options. Both kits come with two 4-foot lengths of 1/4-inch leader chains and carabiners, which allow you to hang your weights properly from the highest position, so they rest on the ground in the bottom position. All of the chains are zinc electroplated to prevent rust, which can be especially useful if you like putting the chains around your neck (where things can get extra sweaty) for dips or stair runs.
The Ader Barbell Olympic Weight Lifting Chain Set comes in 30-pound, 45-pound, and 60-pound sets in either black or zinc. Dipped in oil and a non-toxic oxide finish, these different sized sets are 1/2-inch, 5/8-inch, and 3/4-inch, respectively. They all come with shaft collars to easily secure the heavy-duty forged steel chains to a barbell so that the links are on the ground in the bottom position and off the ground in the top position. However, some have complained about the oily feel of the finish, so if that is something you think may bother you, we would recommend avoiding this pick.
The Happybuy Weight Lifting Chains come in 26-, 35-, and 44-pound pairs, and each chain has a steel black bar collar with an L screw for securing the lock while you use them for deadlifts or bench presses. These pairs come in silver, blue, or black with a zinc coating for protection, and they are all priced lower than most other chains of the same weight and quality. Plus, each chain has one spring snap hook in the middle that detaches it into two chains to add more weight easily. While these chains may not last as long as some more expensive options, they offer great value and quality for the price.
For back support and a convenient way to incorporate more weight into your bodyweight movements, you can't go wrong with this dip belt. Its 30-inch heavy-duty, thick steel chain will support weight plates of all sizes.
For added back support and a convenient way to incorporate more weight into your pull-ups, dips, chin-ups, and hip belt squats, the Gymreapers Dip Belt offers a great, cost-effective alternative to basic lifting chains.
The main points regarding versatility that really matter are leader chains and variance of weight. Leader chains are great because they allow chains to be adjusted for a variety of heights and can attach to nearly every piece of equipment.
Chain lifts add resistance to both barbell work and bodyweight movements. With barbell work, we refer to this resistance as accommodating resistance. This form of resistance allows equal difficulty during all parts of each movement. At the bottom of the rep (when you are at your weakest), the chains rest on the ground, relieving some of the resistance. At the top of the rep (when you are at your strongest), the chains lift off the ground creating more resistance. For bodyweight movements, chain lifts simply provide more resistance throughout the movement than there would be using just bodyweight.
Strength training with chains creates accommodating resistance that helps promote greater overall explosiveness and power. Throw a set or two over your shoulders and do weighted pull-ups or dips, or attach them to a Rogue Butcher for a new dynamic on sled work. Think outside the box and throw them in a WOD.
Rogue Chain Kits include chains with a carabiner in the center for easy loading + 4-foot chains with a carabiner to mount around a barbell. We recommend using a weight in chains that is around 10-20% of your 1 rep max for the exercise you are doing.
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.
Tragically, the victims of such attacks are often children who approach the dog unaware of the risks. Furthermore, tethered dogs who finally do get loose from their chains may remain aggressive and is likely to chase and attack unsuspecting passersby and pets because they have developed severe behavior problems from long-term, intensive confinement.
The Humane Society of the United States believes that dogs are part of the family. We recommend that all dogs live indoors, receive regular exercise and are provided with adequate attention, food, water and veterinary care. Dogs living outdoors part or all of the time should be provided with a safe, escape-proof enclosure with proper shelter, where they may express natural behaviors.
To become well-adjusted companion animals, dogs should interact regularly with people and other animals and should receive regular exercise. Sometimes situations with tethered dogs can be improved incrementally, such as by bringing the dog indoors at night at least, so advocates should be open to options. Placing an animal on a restraint can be acceptable if it is done for a short period or while supervised and if the tether is secured in such a way that it cannot become entangled with other objects. Collars should be comfortable and fitted properly; choke chains should never be used. Keeping an animal tethered for long periods or during extreme weather and disasters is never acceptable.
Weightlifting Chains are heavy steel gage chains that assist resistance, which helps experience a smoother movement for exercises like squats, dips, and deadlifts. The idea is to have the weight decrease when you descend as the chains rest against the floor and similarly have the weight increase when returning to the original position as the chains get lifted along with the barbell, thus adding to its weight.
The chain weight needs to be at least 10% of the barbell weight, including the bar and plates to make a noticeable difference in the stability and smoothness of the movement. For example, if the loaded barbell weighs 200lbs (90 kg), you will have to load chains of 20 lbs (9 kg).
To explore further alterations in skeletal muscle in chronic heart failure (CHF), we examined myosin heavy chain (MHC) isoforms from biopsies of the vastus lateralis in nine male patients with class II-III (CHF) (left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) 26 +/- 11%, peak oxygen consumption (peak VO2) 12.6 +/- 2 mL.kg-1.min-1) and nine age-matched sedentary normal males (NL). The relative content of MHC isoforms I, IIa, and IIx was determined by gel electrophoresis as follows: The normal sedentary group (NL) had a higher percent of MHC type I when compared with the patients (NL 48.4 +/- 7% vs CHF patients 24 +/- 21.6%, P < 0.05, no difference between MCH IIa (NL 45.1 +/- 10.5% vs CHF 56.0 +/- 12.5%), and CHF patients had a higher relative content of MHC type IIx than did the normal group (NL 6.5 +/- 9.6% vs CHF 20.0 +/- 12.9%, P < 0.05. Three of nine patients had no detectable MHC type I. In patients relative expression of MHC type I (%) was related to peak VO2 (r = 0.70, P < 0.05). Our results indicate that major alterations in MHC isoform expression are present in skeletal muscle in CHF. These alterations parallel previously reported changes in fiber typing that may affect contractile function i skeletal muscle and possibly exercise performance. The absence of MHC type I in some CHF patients suggests that skeletal muscle changes in this disorder are not solely a result of deconditioning, buy may reflect a specific skeletal muscle myopathy in this disorder.
The Ader fitness chains come in 3 sizes: 30, 44 and 60lbs. These are the most common sizes for chains and we think this is a great choice to have. 23lbs chains are too light and would only make sense for the smallest female powerlifters, while the 33-60lbs chain sets are going to be useful for all but the most advanced athletes.
With an oxide finish, they look awesome and are incredibly resistant to rust and other problems that are common with unfinished steel chains. Again, this is only likely to show after years, but if you want to buy heavy chains you are expecting them to last!
This chain package is similar to the RopeFit chains with carabiners for attachment, and some heavy chains to provide a combined 65lbs of resistance. This makes them heavy compared to many others on this list, which can be great for advanced lifters but may prove too much for the less-experienced.

Camelid antibodies are antibodies from the Camelidae family of mammals that include llamas, camels, and alpacas. These animals produce 2 main types of antibodies. One type of antibody camelids produce is the conventional antibody that is made up of 2 heavy chains and 2 light chains. They also produce another type of antibody that is made up of only 2 heavy chains. This is known as heavy chain IgG (hcIgG). While these antibodies do not contain the CH1 region, they retain an antigen binding domain called the VHH region. VHH antibodies, also known as single domain antibodies or Nanobodies®, contain only the VHH region from the camelid antibody.
A: Mammals from the Camelidae family, which includes llamas, produce conventional antibodies made up of 2 heavy chains and 2 light chains. They also produce antibodies with only 2 heavy chains. By using our extensive recombinant antibody and engineering knowledge, we developed our LlaMABody product line that includes VHH antibodies (single domain antibodies), bivalent VHH antibodies and VHH domains fused to IgG scaffolds from a variety of species. 781b155fdc
