IDEAL FOR SHORTER TORSOS
The Narrow Lever Belt is an excellent choice for women, shorter athletes, and those who prefer the extra mobility of a narrower belt. The belt works by increasing intra-abdominal pressure, helping to improve your lifts while protecting your spine.
Constructed from premium Amara synthetic leather, the Narrow Lever Belt offers a comfortable and secure fit that is perfect for those with a shorter torso. The lever mechanism (used with our steel buckles) means that you can quickly take the belt on and off between your sets while offering you a high level of support. Our lever belts have been used in competitions to lift over 400kg.
Like our other lever belts, the Narrow Lever Belt isIPF approved, making it suitable for both powerlifting training and competitions. This belt is also perfect for other strength sports, such as strong(wo)man and bodybuilding. The Narrow Lever Belt sports a sleek black finish with white logo embroidery.

10mm Lever Belt 3" Wide - Maroon - IPF Approved
Solid, comfortable and gives great support.
I've had a Strength Shop 4" wide double prong belt for >10 years and bought the Weightlifting belt a few months ago. The weightlifting belt solved my main problem with the 4" belt (pinching in bottom position of the squat) but I'd been interested in a lever buckle and often wondered whether I was always better suited to a 3" wide belt, so bought this too. Did I need a third belt? No, probably not. Do I regret buying it? No, absolutely not! It's so well made, love the dark red suede finish with the polished red edges. The lever buckle is very secure & has the practical benefit that you can loosen it between sets without the whole belt coming off, then quickly/easily re-close it when ready to go again. The disadvantage is that you need a screwdriver to adjust it, so it wouldn't be suited to keeping in a gym for lots of people to use (unless all your lifters are the same size). However the bolts themselves are quite substantial with nice deep/wide threads so little risk of stripping/cross-threading from repeated adjustment. In use, I prefer this for benching, the weightlifter belt for overhead pressing but cannot decide between them for squatting, which surprised me. The weightlifting belt feels more reassuring when you put it on due to the wide back, but once under the weight, there's no less support. This belt, despite being half an inch wider at the front is no more obtrusive in the bottom position, I guess because there's no buckle sticking out at the sides. Both allow me full range of motion and help me to properly "brace". If you have a relatively short torso, seriously consider this. I'm very happy with it.
