A Weightlifting Belt can help
perform Weightlifting Exercises

A weightlifting belt can reduce stress on your lower back when lifting in an upright position. When doing overhead lifts, it may prevent hypertension.

It is generally not necessary to use belts during recreational lifting. If you intend to lift heavy weights, it might be best to consult a professional to assure that you get the right size.

To be effective, it should be worn tightly. Wearing it tightly for a long time can cause elevated blood pressure. For this reason, the belt should be used only when lifting heavy weights and should be loosened when resting. It is not necessary to wear one for lifting light weights.

A belt will not prevent injuries if incorrect form is used. Be sure you know how to perform weightlifting exercises properly.

Price range is about $10-60.
