Any thoughts on using a thinner/smaller belt on deadlifts? Are the benefits the same as a thicker and larger belt like theoretically or in your experience?
I’ve tried many times to introduce the standard width 10mm belt in my deadlift (sumo) but it’s never worked well. It either gets in the way or doesn’t help much at all. Or both. I don’t think I have abnormal torso proportions or anything and have tried higher and lower belt positions. Belt works as normal for my squats.
I’ve been progressing beltless but if there’s a benefit to be had I wanna go for it. Bit pricey for an experiment though.
