thinking of buying a new belt.
also, i pulled 475x1 today for a new PR
i have a piece of shit from what used to be galyan's sporting goods
i rly dont use it anymore though
None ATM... I can't squat or dl for a long while
I use the gym's belt. I really need to get my own. Something like this but 1 prong not 2. http://www.vitacost.com/Valeo-Leather-Lifting-Belt-4-Large
EFS single prong
from my other therad the concensus was
10mm single prong is ideal at my level.. you're above but
whats the advantage of a 13mm over a 10mm?
but maine said it's not necessary
lever or prong?
he doesnt like lever because you have to carry a screwdriver. otoh others do because it's easy if you keep it at same fit all the time... much easier on/off.
i still haven't decided which i'm getting. prong would be good so I can use different tightness levels... but i'll probably get a lever because it's easy and keep it kinda loose
i dont even know what a lever is. i have an old OLD huge everlast belt that i only just started using as a belt to hang weights off for dips.
i dont think i ever used it for squats or anything. it might be 15+ years old and stiff as a board.
a lever belt just has a lever "snap" on the front. you can just snap the belt close and because it's a lever it's easy gogo levers!
prongs are hard if you're doing it really tight. on and off
oh and to the 475 deadlift. that's really sick. 500 gets bragging rights even on OT F&N
500 by jan 1st 08
yea congrats on 475
ai, where's yo log?
race you to 500
... i don't even know why i bother i'm never gonna beat any of you guys
fuck you, dude...
in... i should be eating normal portions again by then
why are you cutting at 175?
i tell myself ill start one, but i get lazy
i don't know if you could call it cutting... but i'm definitely on restrictive calories
i float between 175 and 180 usually... this morning i think i was 177
and the answer to "why" is because i still wanna be leaner
13mm is thick. If you like strongman work before your lift then buy it.
450DL crew. No belt.
but i got one after i maxed last week
