Lumbar Belts

1) Type of belt

There are four types of different lumbar belts: buckle, Velcro, lever and ratchet. The most common ones are buckle and Velcro, as they are the most comfortable, resistant and durable.

2) Material

Lumbar belts may be made of leather, synthetic materials such as nylon or neoprene, or a combination of several materials. If you aim to use the belt for heavy workouts such as weight lifting, a leather belt is recommended, while for light workouts or more movement such as crossfit for example, it is advisable to use a nylon or neoprene belt.

3) Width

Lumbar belts come in widths of 10 and 13 cm. The 13 cm width gives greater reliability and support, but is slightly more uncomfortable, while the 10 cm width is a more simple fit and allows greater freedom of movement. For deadlifting it may be better to use 13 cm belts, while for bench exercises the 10 cm belt is sufficient.

4) Number of buckles

There are lumbar belts with one or two buckles. Although some professionals use the double buckle, in general the single buckle is used, as they are much easier to put on, take off and adjust, and provide very similar support to the user.
