Weight Belt Restricting Breathing
Last night when I was deadlifting I used my belt on my final heavy set. I've noticed over the last 4-5 weeks my weight belt has really been restricing my breathing as I do my set of 5. I simply can't get full breaths in by my 2nd or 3rd rep. And it is starting to impact my pull.
When I put the belt on I flex my abs and put it on so that it is snug, but no overly tight. Snug enough for my abs to flex against.
Has anyone experienced this issue? Am I wearing it wrong? To tight? To high, to low?
The belt I use is a cheapy Valeo that is approx 4 inches in front and 6-8 in back. I need to upgrade, but even though it is crappy, I don't think it is necessarily a problem with my belt.

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.
