Wahlanders Leather Lifting Belt

Do you need a belt that get’s you through the toughest workouts and never fails you? The Wahlanders belt is the perfect choice.

This belt is a premium handmade IPF approved powerlifting belt from Sweden, made for the elite powerlifter. Because the belt is made from 100% leather, it allows for a comfortable and natural shaped fit while maintaining stiffness. You can easily find the appropriate tightness by using the adjustable quick release prong. Above all, this unique quick release prong allows for a very smooth release when you are finished with your set. Your ultra dramatic belt-throw after setting a new personal record is absolutely possible.

Use the Wahlander belt during strength training to increase intra-abdominal pressure during your lifts. This reduces stress on the lower back during lifting and prevents the back from hyperextension during overhead lifts. Subsequently you lift more weight!

The Wahlanders powerlifting belt is perfect for heavy squats, bench press and deadlifts. You can also use the belt for strongman, general strength sports and fitness training.

Available in Black, Red, White, Green & Natural Leather

    Probably the best lifting belt you can get right now. Easy to use like the SBD belt but a lot more comfortable especially low in a squat or the bottom position of a deadlift.

  2. Louise de Jong

    The soft M Wahlanders belt is a great asset for me. ‘Soft’ means that it forms around my body easier than the super sturdy belts. And therefor provides a constant support around my core. The support from the belt is there throughout the entire movement of squat and deadlift. I would say that the belt ‘stays with me’ from start to finish, where other (stiff) belts allow air between my back and the belt in the lower stages of the lift, especially at the start of the deadlift.

    In addition to the belt being super strong and it’s beautiful design the Powerliftingshop’s support is outstanding. Their expert advice, quick response to all my questions and getting me the belt I wanted (and that wasn’t in stock) shows that they really care about their customers and their products.
    I recommend checking out the shop (or the stand at competitions) and treating yourself to some of their great stuff.

    Really great belt! I got the standard belt 2 weeks before my meet and I felt confortable right from the start. Provides great support and feels luxurious. The prong systeem is really easy to use and you can even flick it off like a lever belt. If you want a great belt that will last you years, look no further!
