    Im after a belt. My googling skills keep ending up in finding belts that are hard to find in Australia. Had a look in Rebel Sport today and the quality of the belts did not look to great.

    Can anyone recommend a belt? Mainly for squats, but assume they can also be used for adding weight to dips/pull ups? Im liking the ones with levers, looks like an easy way to engage/disengage the belt without wasting time taking it off. So for warmups I can skip using it, and then engage it for my working sets.

    Thanks!

    Have you got a 10mm or 13mm? Prong or lever?

    Thanks

    Harris looks good, thanks for recommendation.

    Noob question: any belts out there double up as also allowing you to strap weight to them for dips/pull ups or is that a different belt altogether?

    As a noob I'd suggest holding a dumbbell between your feet...easy way to start adding weight

    Iron Tanks have good quality belts, used one for a few years. Only reason I stopped was because I got an Inzer while over in USA, otherwise I'd still be using it.

    Think ill go for iron tanks, this one is on sale.

    I just measured around my waist. Specifically, just above my hips so tape measure goes around my navel. 37.5 inches. This was in a rested state, not breathing in or out if that makes sense. Im def in the skinny fat category, can grab about 1-2 inches of fat from my lower gut. Im 6ft 2.

    Going off the sizing chart, I should go for an XL.

    Being new and all, was just hoping if that size sounds right and that I have sized myself correctly? Thanks, liking the community on this forum compared to others I have been lurking in.
