I've been thinking about investing in a good belt here lately. My squat is going up (350) and Deadlift as well (415). I know those aren't huuuuge numbers, but they aren't nothing either, in terms of what they could potentially do to one's body. I've got pretty good form and have had no injuries thus far, but think that it might be wise to invest in a belt, especially for deadlifts. My questions are as follows:
1). Why use a belt? What are some of the reasons people might want to use a belt?
2). Would you recommend getting one?
3). If so, where can I buy a good belt? I was looking at the ones Inzer makes and some of the ones on Elitefts, too. Are they about the same in quality, or do you have other recommendations?
4). Finally, how do you know what size to get? I was on Inzer's website and I saw something about a 13mm and a 10mm belt, though I am assuming that those may be the measurements for the width of the belt?
Thanks, guys, to whoever can give some advice. I appreciate it a lot!
