A Cardillo Contour Weight Belt gives you additional comfort around your ribs and hips, with more lenience around the edge of the belt to prevent pinching while working out. It is ideal for powerlifting, specifically for squats and deadlifts.

The Contour Weight Belt became popular in 1992 when Tom Platz began using one. The powerlifting community became interested and instantly got hooked on the belt, because it offers the same support as a Cardillo Powerlifting Belt but with more comfort and ease.
