I've had two lifting belts prior to getting this one and my fiance has had four. If you think about quality, and how long these should last, that's quite a bit of lifting belts. My first belt was a leather lifting belt, which occasionally I'll still use. My second, was a Iron Bull lifting belt I bought just a few months ago. It was supposed to be a lightweight, but heavy duty core support for women. Well, I thought it was going to do the job for me, I got the right size, and it fit well over my hips. I get down to do my dead-lifts, and every single time I did the belt would just ride up my hips. If it didn't ride up at the beginning, it would during my set, and that just put extra strain on my body when I was counting on that support from my belt, so I stopped using it. If your one of those people who like their belt, that's great, it just didn't work for me, at all. Now for the Schiek one, that was what I was worried about. I thought to myself, "Oh man, what if this one does what that one did?" Guess what... It didn't! The Schiek belt has double velcro, when putting this belt on you secure it by one layer of velcro then again, by a locking system which includes a second layer of velcro for added protection. *(Just an added note you can chose to use the locking system in the belt or not to both options work great, for your maxing days, those may be the days you want to use the locking system)* Just in case your were wondering, I wear a size Medium in this belt which in the waist the size ranges from 31"-36", and my Travis' is an XXL which waist size ranges from 44"-50". As I mentioned earlier this is my favorite product I've used from Schiek and honestly is the best belt I've ever used. This product deserves a 10/10 without a doubt that just because it's great quality, durability and the price point is right as well for what your getting.
This is my first belt and I really like it..comfortable, well made and adjustable. The sizing is accurate. I am a 34 waist and got the medium which fits well. I have had back issues and this belt certainly helped with that and allowed me to continue to go to the gym with less pain while my back got better. It will also help to prevent future injuries for sure. Also helps with breathing I find..you concentrate more on that part of the workout.
This is a great belt. Although it is the first one I've purchased, it gives the support I need. When using the belt, you still need to focus on keeping your core tight and back straight, but it's a great product to use when you squat or dead-lift The only reason I gave it a 9, is due to the sizing. I bought a medium as I am a 32W and the belt is a little large.
Great Belt. I have a 31-32 inch waist and I should have gotten a small. Will still work just fine!
This belt was an outstanding purchase for me. There are many brands and types of weight belts out there. This particular belt has proven to be the most secure belt that I have used especially when it comes to stiff leg deadlifts, regular deadlift and squats. I would still recommend trying out different belts before you purchase one.
Made is AMERICA! What else do you need to know? Great product all around. Comfortable. Stays in place when I do HIIT in between sets so I don't have to worry about readjusting. Definitely recommend!
This is the first lifting belt I've used but so far it has worked great. Been using it about a month now, and the Velcro holds tight and does not slip at all. Highly recommend.
This is the best lifting belt I have ever owned. It feels secure once put on. The shape contours my back perfectly.
This product works exactly as it is intended to, and is very comfortable. The material is high quality and the stitching is very strong, I got the yellow and the color is great and loud. This belt will Not slip during squats or deads. 10/10
This is my first belt and I love it so far. I work out solo at home and it has helped give me the confidence to up my weight on most of my Olympic style lifts.
Great support overall, also easy to tighten the way you want it.
Great belt for the price. Easy to get on and off quick with the velcro. Great core support.
BEST BELT I EVER HAD... safe as the old school belts without pinching/ digging! This is the only 1 that does not pop loose in the middle of a heavy lift... Others didn't break they just came loose in the middle of a lifts.
Best belt I ever purchased. Great for dead lifting, squats, you know.....picking things up and putting them down. It's quick to put on and locks perfectly everytime. I love it. Def recommend. Thanks also to bodybuilding.com for the FAST and reliable shipping.(always consistent)
