Belt for Raw Bench Press?

Do any guys find that wearing a belt (just to have something to push out against your abs) helps their raw bench?

Anybody have experience with the apt bench belt vs a spud 2 or 3 ply?

No experience with the apt bench belt or spud however I do use my belt when I get over 95% of my raw pressing. I definatly feel that it helps me brace when I am driving my legs and pressing.

I’d love to get one of these. Bob’s bench belts 4" in the front, 3" in the back. $99, Hand made in USA too by Bob, a powerlifter.
