    Hey guys,

    I've been at the gym for about a year to lose weight, but my PT suggested 2 weeks ago we try deadlifting.

    So as of yesterday Im able to go 5 reps of 90kgs but today my back is really feeling it.. so I think maybe it's about time i get some equipment.. like a belt.. or.. brace.. or something.

    So, as mentioned before, I have been going to lost weight, I do have a gut on me, so will need something to go around it for the time being... does anyone have any tips on where I can look?? Rebel sport and those kinda places are failing me at the moment..

    Also... any stretches I can to to ease the back pain????

    Thank you for any help, and sorry if these are dumb questions!

    There should be a couple belt threads on here, so have a search. Rebel etc will be sub par belts, but it depends how seriously you want to take it. A good belt generally is $100+, and will last a very long time.

    Belts aren't necessary, but if you want one there's no harm. I've been deadlifting without one for 99% of the time I've been lifting. I only just recently got one for deadlifting.

    Is your back pain DOMS or does it feel like an injury? Make sure you don't use a belt in place of good form to mask pain.

    Thank you, I've had back pain for most of my life, but the last 8 months or so it's been amazing, this is the only time my back hurts, I know it's injured, I did something wrong, so not gonna dive right back in.
