Why use a lifting belt?
A lifting belt is used to help generate more core strength and stability when lifting, it is going to provide a stable surface to brace against, resulting in a more stable core than simply bracing without a belt.
How do I use it?

With your belt on, take a deep "belly breath," bracing your belly down and outwards into your belt.
With your belt on at the correct tightness, you will feel a physical barrier to push against when bracing.
Who can use this belt?
While lifting belts can be used by anyone in the gym, we do recommend that you learn proper bracing techniques and apply them to your training without a belt first, then as you become stronger and begin to lift heavier weights, then add this Lever Belt to your arsenal!
Should I use anything else for the best results?
If you are at a point in your training where you need a Lever Belt, then you may also be at a point where wrist wraps such as the Slingshot Gangsta Wraps may be of great benefit.
These can be used in conjunction with your belt on squats or bench press, in order to stabilise your wrists to prevent injury under heavy loads!
Can you use a belt in raw powerlifting?
Yes, every federation typically allows the use of a belt during competitions. To ensure you are meeting the requirements, it is best to check the specific guidelines for your chosen federation before competing.
How tight should a powerlifting belt be?
It is ideal to have your belt loose enough that you can still breathe in and out comfortably, but also tight enough that you can push your upper abs out into your belt to create tightness during your lifts.
How to break in a powerlifting belt?
When ordering, a new power lifting belt, they can typically be quite stiff and uncomfortable to use. The Spartans power lifting belt has been designed specifically to be comfortable to use straight out of the package.

If you find your belt is a little stiff rubbing it down with a damp cloth and insuring it is stored in a wrapped up position is ideal.
