Well if it makes you feel better my inzer added 40lbs almost instantly to my deadlift. I think I'm just going to ignore that advice(as I tend to do with most e-advice).

Also when I wear my belt it makes me look like I have a V-Taper icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I took week 7 off to give my body a break. Starting back today doing 2-a-days for one week just to see how my body reacts from it.


FYI
Tyler Durden is my ideal goal physique.

No, it does not?

It only renders it less useful for the deadlift.

 

A 4" belt which is evenly wide all the way around is perfect for the squat.

 

If you didn't know already, you should also use another belt for the bench press as I wider belt with interfere with your ability to arch your back properly. A bench belt is narrower in the back and wider in the front.

 

On the other hand, a good belt for the deadlift would either be narrower all the way around or just in the front. Weightlifting belts (like in Olympic Weightlifting) are narrower in the front and wider in the back since they do lots of pulls from a lower position.

 

Weightliting belt: 4 inches wide in the back, 2.75 at the front

 

 

 

Bench press belt: My guess is that it's 2.75" in the back and 4" in the front.

 

 

 

Normal Powerlifting Belt: 13mm thick, 4" all around. This is the one I just bought.

 

All belts are handmade by a Swedish guy.

Ok, well obviously saying that it's useless is complete hyperbole. It's just annoying to know that you might have to purchase two belts, one for squat and one for deadlift. They're not exactly cheap.

You should buy 3 man, did you not just read condeptionists post? Incase you decide to do some cleans or something you should get a 4th too. It's really important or you might not make gains.

I sorta want to try benching with a belt...
post #41514 of 57256

Yeah Mark, if you want to get serious with powerlifting its gonna get expensive.

 

I don't want to think about how much I've spent on all things combined:

Belt, squat shoes, converse, straps, wrist wraps, knee sleeves, compression shorts and pants, resistance bands, foam roller, lacrosse balls, small incremental plates, gym membership, personal coach... I still have knee wraps and another belt left but I'm gonna wait with those until I really need it. Granted, you don't need all of those but they're all good tools.

 

On top of that you will spend more on food than most of your friends and maybe a bunch of supplements.

What belt is best for overhead press?
post #41516 of 57256
That's one thing about ss that fucked me. Thinking I needed a belt for ohp.
post #41517 of 57256
You probably just didn't use a OHP belt and used a squat belt or something, which gave you a bad experience.

I'm just gonna cop me a girdle and be done with it.
