I just got my new 13mm belt from Elitfts today. I have never owned a belt before; this is my first. I plan on wearing it in a meet 2 weeks from now (I’ve trained w/ a partner’s belt sparingly up until now).
So I just opened the package, and this thing is stiff. So stiff I can barely wrap it around my waist.
Any tips to loosen this thing up, or break it in? Should I just start curling it the other way around, and bending it, etc?
Kinda sucks, because I’m now done squatting and deadlifting heavy until the meet, so it won’t get any broken in that way. Maybe I’ll just wear it the entire time I’m at the gym tomorrow, doing speed pulls and whatever else I do.
