This belt was great when I first got it! Then I quit lifting for a while because I injured my shoulder. Well my birthday rolled around and my girl bought me a birthday cake with a Harley Davidson motorcycle on top. It was a bad ass cake and it was from Bethel Bakery so it was awesome tasting!!! Well after my girls birthday and mine and a couple of birthday cakes later I got fat as F@%k and could not fit into this belt anymore. It is in my gym bag and I recently got back working out again... I laid of the cakes and I'm hitting the weights and running on the treadmill steady again. Hopefully I will fit this belt again soon.
I have been lifting for going on a year now. Consistently 5 days a week. I'm 6'4 212lbs (now) I was 194lbs when I started and the medium fit me then, fits me now, and will fit me when I'm 220lbs. I was a solid 34waist then, and now I'm a 33 flirting with a 32, and the belt fits perfectly. I love how it's curved. It really allows you to get in and out of a deep squat without it feeling binding. I am not a heavy squatter as I have had lower back problems in my day and this adds the perfect amount of confidence to lift without being bulky. The latch system is great because it never slips. You're not going to get this thing off in 1-2 seconds though, it takes a few flips and pulls and undos to get it released. I like it though, some people said it's annoying but dang it works! A name you can trust.
I really like this belt - give it a try. I've had many different kinds for many years and this one is close to my favorite. The support is very good and the wide part in the front (instead of the back) makes a lot of sense, especially after you try it and concentrate on squeezing your abs. Dealing with the mechanism of it is mostly not a big deal, you figure it out pretty fast. Two concerns (hard to explain unless you have the belt):
1. When you first secure it in place, and then try to pull it closed with the strap, the velcro sometimes catches and you have to start over. Schiek supposedly has a patent on this closure process - the velcro is supposed to allow itself to slide in one direction (closed) but not the other (open). It mostly does this okay. But when the velcro is first attached very firmly, it won't slide closed - it catches and is stuck. Maybe I need to try and not attach it so firmly at first, but my point is that this process is not quite as smooth as it's...
