    Lifting Belts

    So I'm kicking myself for it, but I left my lifting belt at the gym last week. Needless to say, I haven't seen it since so I'm in the market for a new lifting belt. Anyone have any suggestions for a good belt?

    For everyday use this one is great. Not for competition but solid for the price. The velcro makes it super versatile.

    I wear this all the time and lift a decent amount of weight.

    Oh and get the large if you are in that range. Don't bother with medium even if you are unsure.

    I owned a Cardillo belt for like 8-9 years, it got worn out pretty bad so I called them and told them that my belt was in bad shape, they told me to ship it to them and they sent me a brand new belt. I wouldn't use nothing else, my wife also owns a Cardillo belt.

    +1 for the belt dt posted. Its the one i use for normal training

    I wear a medium and its perfect for a 31" waist up too around 36".
    I do now what others won't. So I can have later what others can't

    Izner Belt. Hands down best IMO - lever action for exceptional compression. Heavy duty leather and actually comes in a size that will accommodate my 28 inch waste.

    Same belt here. And it comes in a size that will accomadate my 36 inch waist

    The thing is hard as a rock, you can really push the core out against it. However, I'm not happy with it for deadlifts. Its too thick and bites into me on higher volume days. Its fine if you're pulling singles or for a meet maybe, but when You reach down to grab a bar and it bites your skin over and over and over it starts to suck. Impeccable for squats though.

    Also have an Inzer lever. Like a steel pipe, but do agree with POB on it pinching alittle when grabbing the bar for deads.

    Re: Lifting Belts

    Thanks for the input guys. I ordered two: an Inzer and a Harbinger. I've heard Inzer belts take a while to ship so I figured I'd run with the Harbinger until it arrives (for $13.50 why the hell not).
