I have been using this weightbelt for the last few months, and been very satisfied with the results. Construction is solid, it has formed well to my torso through use. The double prong is supportive, and once you become accustomed to it, latching the belt has no issues, but does take a bit more effort than a single prong.<br /><br />I powerlift, and have had low back issues, stemming from poor posture and desk work for a decade, so I use this on all sets of my lift, not just heavier work sets, and it gives fantastic wide coverage of my low back and stomach, helping brace my muscles comfortably. Pulling motions such as a barbell row, and pressing motions that put strain on my spine like the overhead press have been mitigated by the support it provides when I use my stomach muscles to brace against it.<br /><br />Note: If you suffer from sciatica, and similar issues, this belt can help with recovery on low weight lifting, but do not rely on it in lieu of physical rehabilitation, stretching, and recovery. I quit lifting for two years to recover from bulging disk and sciatica, through stretching routines like yoga and PT, and returned to it once my pain had subsided, and used weight belts for required support. Nothing replaces healing and recovery, along with proper form and mechanics.<br /><br />Used primarily for low back squat, deadlift, overhead barbell press, barbell row, cable row, and other pulling exercises.
