Recently the topic of lifting belts came up with me. Let me first say that there's not much that falls into the norm with me when it comes to PL or BB. This is the belt style I have used for 35 years. I squatted and DLed a respectable amount with type of belt, even used the single home style.

Most guys love their 10-13mm lever belts but they never felt right for me, just too stiff. I had a guy come up to me at a meet and comment on the belt and my squat. He said, "My dad whacked me with a belt bigger than the one you squat with. Point is, you need to do what's best for you and not just go with what everyone else is doing.

I enjoy my 10mm Lever but I'm thinking of trying a single prong so I can adjust it quicker and on the fly.

I've had my single prong, 10mm Inzer for years now. It's been the most reliable piece of gym equipment I've ever owned.

I have a couple of those lifting belts that are 4" across in the back then taper in the front. I use them for a lot of the movements I do in my workout, but when it comes time to squat I break out one of my power belts. I have a13mm Inzer Forever lever belt and a 13mm single prong belt that I got from EFS. I find myself using the lever belt more often than the single prong but I really like both belts. With the lever belt I keep a screw driver with it so I can make adjustments to the position of the lever for those days when I'm bloated or have mysteriously lost or gained weight. With the single prong I carry a length of 550 cord that I've tied into a loop and a carbineer. I wrap the 550 cord around the upright of a power rack and then thread it through the eyelet on the end of the belt then clip on the carabineer to keep the cord from pulling back through. This allows me to push against the rack and gain leverage when putting on or removing the belt.

I had 5 belts that I recently found good homes for. ive settled on a floppy 1 prong belt for comfort and ease of use.
