The first weightlifting belt designed specifically for crossfit athletes
I have used quite a few belts over the past few years and this one is top notch!... I have boosted confidence in my lifts and CrossFit workouts. I used this belt at a competition this past weekend that had weightlifting movements and powerlifting movements and also some metcons, I USED THIS BELT FOR ALL OF THEM! This was great because I could quickly loosen the belt if I did not need it for a movement but would not risk it totally falling off my body.
AMAZING! The self-locking bar has an incredible hold on the belt… Even better, it’s simple to loosen: Grip the edge, pull back, and loosen. I found this extremely convenient for any workouts with fast transitions between different lifts/movements. This is also probably my favorite belt for barbell work. Because the buckle has a low profile and primarily because the circumference is the same width all the way around, you can cinch it down, slide it a few degrees to the side, and make your lift without having the bar hit the buckle (see photo) – and I keep the bar close. You can see the bar lifting my shirt but still missing the belt because it’s so low profile.
I give my STRONGEST RECOMMENDATION!!
I am a competitive crossfitter and have been using a variety of belts for a few years. I always had problems with my previous belts popping open right before a lift or during a heavy squat/deadlift. This belt stays put AND is easy to put on and take off mid-WOD. It is extremely comfortable but feels super secure at the same time. Never going back to any of the other brands!!
