    Looking for a belt and straps


    I'm looking for a good belt and lifting straps, not too expensive but still comfortable. Never had either before just used the ones at my school. Thanks in advance.

    With a belt, don't be cheap. If you buy a good one, it'll last the rest of your life.

    By straps you mean the things that wrap around both your wrist and the weight? If so, personally, I would get whatever is affordable. I bought mine at a local sports store for $15-20 about 3 or 4 years ago and they've held up well, though to be fair I use them infrequently. I would just say make sure they're fairly simple and are just a single piece of material per strap and don't have any patches or other **** sown onto it.

    Echoing previous advice. Get a good belt and get whatever straps are cheap. A good belt will last 10-20 years (my first was a leather 4" and it lasted 20 years), but straps fall apart no matter how good they are. I'd recommend a lever or P2 lever from elite if you're a power lifter/power builder type.
