      First and foremost, I DO not want this to turn into a discussion of what belts do, and why they are and aren't necessary.

      What I would like to discuss, is when the people who wear belts, decided to start wearing them? I have recently been toying with the idea of getting one, primarily for my max effort lifts, but am stuck in the paradox of "if I haven't used one yet, why start?".

      I got one for the first time almost a year ago.

      why? in all honesty.
      I thought it would help me lift more, has it......maybe.

      I use it for max sets only (whether that be for 1 rep or 8 reps).

      I had squatted over 500lbs without a belt before getting one. I have no worries about the safety part of it as my back is strong and my form is good. I definitely feel tighter with it and I'm glad I have one.

      I have an inzer single prong in orange I say spend the $100 and get one, use it for max attempts only. It's not that big of a deal, I can see how it would be easy to rely on one though, it does make you feel tighter and more stable.

      What is wrong with your brain, exactly?

      Thank you for the valuable contribution.

      Sometimes you are a great asset to these forums, other times you are a great ass.
