Wahlanders Personalized Lifting Belt

Give your lifting belt a personal touch by choosing the color and stitching for your Wahlanders personalized lifting belt. Also get your own (nick)name engraved on the back!

his 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 will be able to lift more weight!

The Wahlanders powerlifting belt is perfect for heavy squats, bench press and deadlifts. The belt is also frequently used for strongman, general strength sports and fitness training.

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