    Same as this for me too. And I never wear a belt for anything except heavy squats and heavy deadlifts.

    Mrs Flex does standing barbell presses though and she doesn't wear a belt either. Her Max is about 80lbs for 1-3 reps.

    Seated, with belt for old guys like me!
    Take care of your low back now; you'll be glad you did.

    Good night!...The title alone sounds excruciating!!!!...I've tried my old seated military presses and it feels like an elephant is standing on my shoulders! (and that's with the bar only!)....Couldn't imagine standing!!!....:eek:o_O

    Personally, I don't use a belt for any assisted lifts.
