I messed up my back about a month ago doing military press without a belt and losing my form, and my back has just gotten better enough to use for support again. I learned my lesson and am using the gym's weight belt but I want to get my own to bring to college next week. I looked at some of the ones in the local sports store and none of them really did anything for me. I'm looking for something that'll provide support in front as well as in back, and I noticed at the store that the wide ones felt better than the thin ones, but none felt like they provided quite enough support. Also, no leather. Does anyone have any suggestions?
