  3. Lifting Belt Advice Needed

    I saw that there are already similar topics, but those were very specific questions regarding belt thickness, etc. I have multiple questions, hence the separate topic. I just found out that I have two degenetrative discs in my lower back. My chiropractor has me on a plan to help increase spine flexibility in the lumbar region, which is part of my problem. While he wants me to keep lifting, he says I should lighten the load for now and definitely wear a belt while squatting and deadlifting. I've become a bit of a Rogue Fitness fanboy, so I was looking at their belts. I've also seen Best Belts mentioned here. So, on to my questions. I've seen video of people using belts that are quick release. Other than the obvious benefit, are there other pros/cons to this type of belt? Would I be better served by a single or double prong belt closure? I'm leaning towards a 10mm, 4" belt based on the responses to other topics on this forum. I'm 6'2" with a relatively long torso. Sound about right? Are there other manufacturers/distributors that I should consider? Any other words of wisdom for a belt-newb? The bad news? There isn't much I can do directly about a disc that is deteriorating. The good news? I can continue to build strength around the area to indirectly compensate for the spine weakness. My chiropractor stated that I'm off to a good start and there is definitely nice protection around the spine. I just need to keep working on developing it. My ceiling for squatting pain free was 165 lb. last Spring. I recently pushed it to 185 lb. before feeling pain again, so I added 20 lb. in a few months. That isn't much, but it tells me that I can keep raising that threshold. I may never squat big weight, but it won't be because I'm not trying. Any advice on the belt purchase would be appreciate.
