What are some good weight lifting belts? I'm looking at the Harbinger 5" Firmfit belt but wanted to see what kind of belts you guys are using. Sorry if this is the wrong section to post this in, Didn't really see an "appropriate" section.
I don't use a belt unless I'm going for a double or single in the squat. I use an Inzer 13mm two-prong. You don't want to rely on them and have an underdevolped midsection/lower back. In fact, you should try to avoid all support gear because it just acts as a crutch and you'll end up relying on them too much, causing an imbalance. e.g. underdevloped grip strength due to the use of straps.
But to answer your question: I believe Inzer, hands down, makes the best belts and wraps in the industry. APT also has very good belts and are a bit cheaper than Inzer.
I use an Inzer 10mm single prong. Using a belt is not a crutch as long you are training abs as well and are not wearing it 24/7 in the gym.
I don't always wear a belt, but when I do, i drink... no wait, that's not it...
APT double prong 13mm powerlifting belt. VERY stout.
