Thanks for your input, I've always been suspect of a simple belt being able to prevent any sort of injury. You would probably need to be in a full back brace that would completely immobilize the lumbar and t-spine to truly prevent an injury.

For me, just the possibility of being able to pull or squat more weight is enough reason to at least own a belt.

I doubt that even if you wore a belt for every lift that ab development would be somehow inhibited, as just by wearing a belt doesn't mean your abs stop firing.
