i use a belt for my top lifts also, to me it feels like i have a little more support, plus i have two bda disks and i dont like to take too much chances...

i use an Inzer economy power belt... 10mm thick 4 inches wide and the same size all the way around.... if you use a cheap nylon one, try out a good thick leather belt, you will never go back to the other belts, i promise you...

Same here. Never did have much trouble with double-prongs, and it was a lot cheaper than the lever belts.

The Anderson Powerlifting Belt is a great Belt for the Money. I spent weeks looking for a decent 4in, 10mm Lever Belt. I was afraid of getting a cheaper belt, but I just didn't have the cash for a $100+ belt right now. I searched every site I could find who had a belt like this. Even overseas. It seems many Companies sell the same Belt with only some minor differences and Branding. I don't know this for a Fact, but I saw many belts online. That I couldn't tell the defference from one to the other. So I looked around and found a Site that had good pictures of the product, Good Feedback and priced better then most.
Anderson Powerlifting is who I went with.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Has you can see the Belt is made very nice. From it's heavy duty Chrome Lever to the soft Suede outer cover. What I liked about the belt. No Logo's on the outside. Just a nice Black suede. Most others. MF, Toro and others all had some sort of branding. Which wasn't a deal breaker. Just nice IMO.

Now for support. The belt worked like it should. No complaints here. It was easy to set up. Just takes a minute to adjust the lever with a flat head screw driver. You remove to screws to adjust it. Once it's adjusted. Getting the belt off and on is a breeze. I have had this belt for over a month now and it still looks new and I see no reason way I'll need another belt for years to come. I was also afraid of having a painful break in period. NOPE.. not at all. The first time wasn't uncomfortable at all. No Digging in, No Piniching etc....This Belt seemed broke in already. I've been using a old belt that was at least 1/2 the thickness. Which was at least 7-8yrs old and worn by many guys at the gym. It's a 4in double-prong belt and I know it's broke in well. It's uncomfortable compaired to the new Anderson belt.

Now my Rating... I hate to give a perfect 10, but I'm going to have to. I can't find one single issue with the belt yet. If anyting changes I will update this review and adjust the rating if need be.

10 out of 10

I haven't used a belt since high school, which was a looong time ago. I may get one as my weights continue to climb, but at this point I'm squatting 345 and dealifting 400+ without any need for one, and have no intention of getting one at this point.

Having had three hernias (all inguinal) from sport related injuries, not in the weight room, I find using a belt gives me some security. I know the importance of training your core through the compounds with no belt; so I just use it to make sure I feel my abs flexing against it. Good reminder to keep tight. I lift with a double prong leather one slightly thicker in the back almost everyday. I have read a lot of research on the subject, but again, so many competing opinions I use my my personal preference.
