    I never use one. Never go below 6 reps either. I get a kick out of the guys who wear em for everything. Couple idiots in my gym use them on bench day. Not only that, but they are loose as hell. Just kinda hangin there.

    LOL, some guys get out of their car with their belts on. They also put them on to get a drink from the water fountain, lol.

    As far as whether or not you need a belt and what type to get, it depends on your goals. Check out the thread Musketeer mentioned.

    Not to hijack the thread, but there's a guy at my gym who wears his belt when he's on the treadmill. Also wears dark sunglasses sometimes when he works out too.
