  • Good Lifting Belt?

    Hey guys, my new gym doesn't have any lifting belts to use, so it seems it's come to the time to buy my own.

    Just wondering if anyone can reccomend a good one (preferably not too expensive, don't want to spend too much money on it)

    Thanks guys.

    P.S. Anyone use neoprenes for there elbows on Tricep motions and or chest/shoulder?

      i have to agree with bigp on inzer gear. i recently bought a pair of their iron z knee wraps, they are awesome. honestly babyget, i would go and spend a few extra bucks on the good stuff. it is not like you are going to buy this stuff new every month. once you have a good belt, it will stay with you for a long time.

        Do you guys think this is a good one to go with? They have this one and the same one in a lever, but I felt the notches is better.

            babygeto, Go to a sporting goods place anywhere in town and try them on, leather is the best for support and maybe 20.00-30.00 bucks tops.

            Also you will find neoprene sleeves for elbows and knees, they run 12.00 each and you can wash them over and over again...

              babygeto, I own the grizzy leather belts, and I will say they are very good and durable. my last belt lasted 3 years before it finally fell apart, I't cost me around $30 canadian at national sports, and I just purchased another one not to long ago.

              I will say it takes a few weeks before you get the new belt worked in, and it fits snug and comfortable to wear. Kind of like breaking in a new pair of skates.

                Anyone not use a belt? I have not so far, although my pulls are only breaking 400. Still, I don't plan on using one unless I absolutely have to.

                  Thors, I didn't for years either and actually only started back recently (in the past few years). It does become a safety issue.

                  Just an FYI: another source for quality belts.

                    I dont use a belt. I feel at this point the lifts arent heavy enough to put a strain on me.

                    But usually a 4 inch leather belt is good. I used a 6 inch leather powerlifting belt once when squatting and it made me feel really stable and secure. I was able to concentrate alot on the power in my legs.

                      I really only use mine on back and legs when my lower back needs that support. I also use a neoprene wrap around my waist to keep my back nice and warm so it stays loose.

                        I agree on the inzer. Just recently bought one and its awesome. Whats the quote from pretty women.- "I'm a saftey girl", well recently i've become a safety guy.

                        Shit elbow neoprene and wrist wraps and belts. I've had to damn many injuries and this is just a great protection.

                            You should try one on if you can before you buy one. I use a power belt for squats and back and love the tight feeling it gives on the back. This allows me to push myself while doing legs/back without fear of injury.

                            Try to find a couple of guys in the gym that have belts already and borrow their's for a set.

                            Good luck.

                              I have a dual prong PL belt like that and rarely use it, they are just not real comfortable and I don't think necessary unless maxing out.
                              I use a nylon/velcro belt for the day to day heavy sets.
                              The key is getting one with and actual 4" nylon strap that goes all the way around. These padded Nike belts with the wide back but a 2-1/2" strap aren't worth a crap.
                              I had a Harbinger that was awesome for years that I used for 500+ lb Deads and 600+ rack pulls and it gave me as much support as the PL leather belt.
                              I now use a Valeo since wearing out the Harbinger after 3 years.
                              The points to look for in the nylon belts are;
                              1. 3-1/2"-4" Nylon strap that goes all the way around
                              2. a METAL loop that the strap folds through
                              You can find the good Harbinger and Valeos for $20-$25
