    My new gym doesn't have belts so I want to order one.

    My old gym has basic ones that were probably 3" wide for the majority of the belt and 6" wide in the back. The local Big5 has belts but there's this padding shit in the back of it that I don't like, I feel like it isn't as sturdy with material that gives in the back.

    Hoping to spend <$60 :hs:



    I found this one and it's the style from my old gym that I like but for $25 I'm thinking it might be shoddy product :dunno:

    How much are you squatting/deadlifting?

    I have the EFS retro belt that feels strong as fuck... I never wear it cause i don't think it's necessary yet but the times I did try it I liked the feel.

    ~400 squat, ~500 deadlift

    Been cutting and strength has been inconsistent but that's where I was last time I maxed about a month ago. I don't intend on deadlifting with it ever, just squatting on my last set or two :dunno:

    I looked at the EFS one and it doesn't look very wide in the back, I particularly liked the ones at my old gym because they were so wide in the back :hs:

    you don't need one with a wide ass back...


    The ones from EFS are better. Ask any PL'er.

    Well you said that the wider ones weren't necessary so I posted an example of one of the EFS ones :dunno:

    Would the one I linked be a good one to get?

    The one you posted is not a "wider one" it is narrower then a standard power belt.

    Get the EFS Retro single prong
