    inzer or apt

    You are looking into powerlifting so I suggest buying a quality belt you can use in a competition. inzer has some great deals. I have a single prong forever belt and I love it. It is a little more than 20 bucks but it lasts FOOORRREVVVEERRRR

    APT has a leather belt for like 19.99 and thats what I use now. I would suggest though that you just save up and get a good quality belt, I personally just got the $20 one because I out grew my old one and I am waiting for the new ones to come in stock.

    i got a cheap nylon one that secures with velcro. Dont know if its any better than a leather belt, but it gets better adjustment than the leathers with belt holes

    nylon belts aren't allowed in competitions for the USAPL. Idk about other federations though. Just somethign to think about
