Weightlifting belts typically are made out of thick leather and are held with a prong or lever buckle.

How to Use

A weightlifting belt provides stability to the spine. The increased pressure helps the spine to maintain stability and strength even while carrying out hard exercises involving the lifting of heavyweights. This ultimately prevents the fall of the spine and saves it from collapsing over during weightlifting.
