Weight Belts / Head Harnesses

Leather Weightlifting Belts and Neoprene Weightlifting Belts - Weightlifting belts and powerlifting belts are used by weightlifters and athletes to support and protect the lower back and abdominal wall during weightlifting and powerlifting exercises. Weight belts for bodybuilding and general weightlifting are avaiable in high quality, thick leather with or without treated leather. Another weight lifting belt option for weightlifters is nylon and neoprene weight belts with countoured sides and velcro closures by Schiek Sports. The leather and neoprene weight belts are wider in the back for optimal low back support but narrower in the front for added mobility and comfort.

Powerlifters also have a large selection of powerlifting belts to choose from. Power lifting belts are different than weightlifting belts in that they are one continuous width throughout, which is most commonly 4” per International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) rules. Powerlifting belts are also thicker than bodybuilding and weightlifting belts in order to provide maximum support during the heaviest Olympic lifting. Powerlifting belts are available in USA made leather, colorful suede leather or your choice of camouflage patterns. Closure types include one prong, two prong and heavy-duty steel levers.

What are the advantages of using a weight belt while squatting or deadlifting? According to the National Strength and Conditioning Association, the best reason to use a weight lifting belt is to increase intra-abdominal pressure, or pressure in your abdomen, during heavy or strenuous weightlifting. This pressure creates a rigid core, stabilizing your spine and helping increase your maximum power. This pressure also keeps your spine from collapsing under heavy weight.

What is the right time to use a weight belt? Use a Weightlifting or Powerlifting belt during heavy sets at or above 80 percent of your one-rep maximum. Use your belt for spinal support during heavy squatting and deadlifts. Lifts that usually require heavy lifting, and therefore a weight belt, include cleans, snatches and jerks. Free standing overhead lifts, like standing shoulder presses, also warrant the use of a weight belt.
