PTTP - your thoughts

@Abdul, please note that our web site says a belt is not allowed during strength testing at the SFL. I have never worn a belt for powerlifting and very likely never will. I do, however, wear a belt to hold up my pants except when my pants have a drawstring or elastic and, for that purpose, a belt is very useful.

:) :)

Don't you find suspenders more preferable?

@Abdul Rasheed, excellent work, excellent progress!!

(Good to get used to "falling with the weight" on your deadlifts - just keep your hands on the bar so you can steady it once it's on the floor for a second.)
