    Im gonna get myself a lever belt and some knee wraps/sleeves and found prices on inzernet much cheaper than canada.

    Do you guys have any experience buying from there? Is there a better place?

    They also don't seem to carry plain knee sleeves so i might need to find some elsewhere

    Should i order anything else? :dunno:

    Most any manufacturer with a dealer network will either not sell on their own website at all or typically offer the standard "retail" prices and let their dealers set "street pricing" relative to the amount of profit they want over the dealer price.

    If a manufacturer undercuts the price of their dealers on many of the items the dealer has no reason to try to sell their stuff.

    lever belt blows but not as much as ordering directly from inzer


    www.irongladiators.com

    inzer direct is very very slow

    maine those prices seem a lot higher for the same things? Like $20 more for a 13mm belt..

    What's wrong with a lever belt? From what I've seen they're just far easier to attach without help? I think I was using a standard 13mm 2 prong belt. I was able to put it on pretty easily anyway because I didn't make it tight.

    Gohan: I find the belt helps me a lot because it reminds me to keep pushing out and keep tight :dunno: without something to push out against I forget to do it.

    As for the knee wraps... you're right I probably don't need them... but last time I used them they stopped my knees from hurting. I know they add #s to my lifts which is why I wanted to try knee sleeves instead. But I also don't mind squatting more because of them :mamoru:


    Edit: I also see this belt which looks better than the double priced ones... but I did want pink :o

    Lever belts are not easily adjustable. You need to keep a screwdriver in your gym bag... and 13mm is way too thick

    Ok I'll just get a regular 2 prong belt then. Do you think the economy one I linked is good?

    I don't know anything about this stuff (and I have no idea what I used)

    Do I want a 10mm belt then? I'm getting the plain 2M Knee wraps

    I think 2 prong sucks, too. 10mm is a good belt, nice and strong but not too thick.

    I think the lever belt is perfect for benching. The problem is if you use it for benching, then want a different tightness for sq/dl.

    inzernet is fine, albiet slow.

    I use a 13, I agree with Maine, they're pretty darn thick. Once it breaks in (about 6000 years later) it's great.

    I don't plan to use a belt for benching... or deadlifting I don't think. Just when I squat it reminds me to keep air in and push my stomach out.

    When I used it for squatting I went b/w 2nd and 4th holes on various sets so I guess the lever belt wouldn't have worked so well :o

    It's crazy the belts cost $130CDN i think or $70 USD :mamoru:

    I think 2 prong belts are fucking stupid and offer no advantages over a single prong (which is easier to get on and off).

    But thats just me.

    we've had good service directly from inzer to Australia. If you call up its much better than ordering over the internet.

    buy some neoprene knee sleeves and ditch the belt.

    I personally love my lever belt. And, unlike a competive powerlifter, I'm not constantly manipulating water weight to make class cutoffs, or increase leverage so my waste size stays nearly the same. No need to keep a screwdriver in the gym bag since it only needs adjusting every few months.

    Though for people who like varying degrees of tightness for different lifts, its not the best choice.

    I really like my Inzer 13mm lever belt , don't think I could go back to a regular one....

    Toss a flat-head screwdriver in your gym bag and forget about it.

    :dunno:
