    Weightlifting/Powerlifting belts

    What are some of the brands you guys are using?

    What are some of the brands you recommend?

    What are some of the brands you would never recommend?

    Some of the ones I'm looking at are.


    Mark Bell Strong powerlifting belt 10mm/13mm

    Rogue 13mm powerlifting

    Cardillo belt



    I've been using a fabric/Nylon Harbinger for quite some time but my squats and deads are getting higher than I've had in awhile and I want to invest in some quality equipment.

    TIA!

    I have a Metal 13mm that I have had well over 20 years now. Also a elitefts 13mm for over 10 years. I recommend either of these.

    10mm belt is sufficient, 13 is too thick for me. Rogue fitness has some decent belts, so does inzer.

    I just ordered a red 10mm Inzer Forever Lever belt. Looking forward to this, thanks for the recommendation, I can't believe it was only $89. I was looking at a few that were close to $200!

    Cant go wrong with inzer. Decent brand. They have got nice DL and squat singlets as well. Most of their Gear is IPF approved. In case you want to indulge in the world of competitive powerlifting.

    I thought about it but I'm honestly not sure how that works when you're on TRT...I think I'd be disqualified. It's not something I've ever looked into

    Came in to vouch for inzer lever belt and mark bells.

    Was extremely skeptical if Smellys belt but it turned out to be best bang for your buck belt imo.

    Personally do not like rogue belts. Owned two and the quality is just meh imo. Had one just completley break down after 2 years and I feel as though the material doesn't brace you enough. When I brace my core against the belt with them they seem to give or maybe form to much with you.

    Anyhow inzer is my go-to. Hit my first 650 skwat and 660 DL with a 5 year old inzer. Have no doubt you'll be satisfied.

    Once you get it, can you tell us how the sizes run compared to how it fits? E.g., the large is 34 to 38. I am right now in the middle of that range, but I can easily be at the top of that range by going off diet or bulking a couple of months. I am trying to figure out if I am going to need two belts. LOL! If I run a tape measure around my middle at the belly button, it is just a tad under 36 right now. Obviously, the large belt is the one I should order. I am just curious if I can still use the belt if I let my waist creep up a couple of inches of water bloat and fat.

    I have two for that very reason, because you'll have to break out a flat tip to take the lever apart and reposition it if youre expecting weight/measurement fluctuations.

    Absolutely. They actually charged my account today, so I'm hoping it will ship in the next few days.

    Make sure to wear it constantly. To the gym. To work. Out on dates. And talk with a fake German accent.

    My belt arrived!!!! Just put it together and the quality is amazing!!!! It's snug but not too tight. Going to try at this setting for a few sessions. I think tighter might be proper, but also very uncomfortable.

    I was told 6-8 weeks until delivery. So no stress as we left for Los Angeles for four days on Thursday.....

    It arrived Friday
    Hahaha
    Good thing we have housesitters.
    Came home to a beautiful red lever belt.
