I do boxing, and lifting weights, so always wear a back support belt. My husband doesn’t use one when lifting, and then his back hurts for several days. That is why I wanted the iiSPORT 8 Inch Back Support Powerlifting Belt Strap for Weight Lifting, Squats, Lunges, Deadlift, Thrusters – Heavy Duty Gym Belt for Men and Women.
I got him the medium, and it fits perfectly. I love that it is ‘CONSTRUCTED WITH POLYESTER FIBER MATERIAL /AN ULTRA-LIGHT FOAM CORE’, so it doesn’t feel cumbersome. It is very light, when you pick it up. It is simple to fit, by sliding the highest part to the middle of your back, right at the waist. The lumbar support will be in position, and then you loop the Velcro through the buckle, and secure it. It is suggested that you keep it loose, until you are ready to lift, do squats, or whatever you are planning.
I have tried it myself, and when it is on, my back doesn’t move. It even protects my sides too. I can feel the ridges on it, which is great, as I know it’s doing a good job.
From the website below: ‘ERGONOMICAL DESIGN: WITH FLEXIBLE SUPPORT STRAP, iiSPORT Weight Lifting Belt Provide Firm & Comfortable Lumbar Support during any kind of Strength Training. Long and Wide Velcro strap for added secure fastening. FLAME LAMINATING ABRASION RESISTANT FABRIC.’
As you can see from the photos, it has good ventilation, which means that it shouldn’t get as sweaty as some of the other belts. If it does, just hand wash it, and air dry it.
I plan on using the belt on Wednesday, when I go to my trainer, for another boxing lesson.
I received this product for free, and wanted to write a review about it. These are my own words, after testing it out.
