Have been using one for 2-3 months now and after about 1 month it started to deform and the elastic started to stretch out. Stitching started to rip from Velcro area and anywhere with the fake leather material. Really like what the product does, quality of product is terrible for the price.
If you're a person with a torso you should have a Breath Belt on daily. Working out or not the trunk stabilization cuing it gives and tissue lengthening quality it provides is second to none. The Breath Belt should be worn at least once a day. Period.
Before owning this belt, I would always have pain in my low back when deadlifting. Since owning this belt, it has almost gone away entirely. I am not sure what kind of magic it is doing but it works and works well. It works so well that I only need to wear this belt until I get close to 90% with my lifts. It almost feels better than wearing a traditional leather lifting belt. Bracing has gotten much better while wearing and without wearing. I also wear it while doing some mobility work and warmups. You really cant use it wrong and I cant recommend it enough to anyone with persistent musculature low back pain.
I use the breathing belt to train my brace endurance and use it to short cut my warm up drills. The biggest help is, it is powerful tool for those clients that don't like floor drills.This is huge for teaching them what a brace feels like and getting to the lifting faster.
