Don't waste your money, yet.

I old uncle DL >120 also no belt no strap.


Only belt is charity belt under my tights.

Focus on your breathing and gek your torso prior to your lift.

A lifting belt is not exactly meant to be loose.

Unless you have a massive gut in which case I'd work on that first with your diet and volume based lifting.

No need the belt.
It will train your core and become more stronger.

Plain ignorance.... There is a limit to how much your back can take. Continue to think like that , before you become stronger you prob will be out of action...

alot of people think that we don't need belts this and that.

those are the lucky few that hadn't had any form of injuries.

as you progress all the problems will accumulate until breaking point.

then when you reach that slowly all the problem starts to emerge and that's when it's too late.

I'd take a weak back than a busted one any day.

How much you deadlift is nothing. Weight is subjective, everyone have their individual level of tolerance.

Like what yang_nastyman said, by the time u bust your back, it will be too late.

There's a place for lifting belts - when you're doing max efforts, and right before you're doing max efforts(to get used to it).

For training weights, engage your natural belt (your core), and train it right.

Try stronglifts 5x5 program before we get back to this topic of weight belts.

Just so you know, I was responding to what seems to be a generalization.

Saying that a lifting belt is a waste of money may hold some truth only if you're lifting sub-maximal weight, not when attempting a heavy PR where every bit of intra-abdominal pressure held and pushed inward from the "walls" of a belt will work to your advantage in finishing the lift.

Besides, I'm a proponent of building core strength to build the deadlift, than using the deadlift to build core strength. Specific core exercises can be done quite frequently without frying your central nervous system, which cannot be said the same for heavy deadlifts if done too often, i.e. more than once a week for a prolonged period.

Just FYI, since you asked - my raw DL PR no belt alternate grip is 225kg. With belt alternate grip is 235kg.
