Powerlifting and olympic weightlifting, yeah.
I would place bodybuilding alongside interests such as painting, DJing, etc. Its more a hobby, although a very competitive one.

At some point, I'd say its better to get a belt than be without one. Its a safety measure just like wraps and all other gear for raw lifters.
I don't use a but I squat over 1.5xBW for reps so I will get one very soon. I did some singles around 290 last week and the core was def the limiting factor rather than the legs.
A lot of guys only use them for the really heavy stuff in training, such as singles, doubles and triples and leave it off for all the rep work. Considering I usually work up to a max for the day and then do 25-30 reps over 5-8 sets, I'd do the single with the belt and then the downsets without it.
It also makes sense to get one if you're gonna compete in PLing.

How did you size your Inzer TK? I'm assuming I need a medium, not a large. If I recall Charly uses a medium and his waist is a lot thicker than mine.
If you want to get it off quick and easy, a lever belt is prob better than a prong.
Seeing that you guys rec'd the 13mm, I'll order a Inzer Forever Lever 13mm in a couple of weeks.
