Proper technique for 2 excersises?

I do not own a belt for dead lifting. Would you guys recommend me getting one? What would be the downsides if I didn't?

Also I was wondering about the proper technique of weightlifting in general. For example: if I am bench pressing should I slowly lower the bar and then push it upwards as fast as possible (without loosing technique) or do I go down slowly and up slowly? I assume that the same question would apply to curls and dips etc?

Thanks for the help.

    http://www.exrx.net/Lists/Directory.html this will show you good form on all your exercises, as for using a belt, this has been asked loads mate, do a search, you'll find that opinions vary. I personally don't use one but only lifting 160kg for reps atm. I read on here that our bodies contain a pretty decent belt... you just have to build it, I guess that's what I'm trying to do

    I just try to use a controlled form, not too fast and not too slow.
    There are loads more experienced lads on here than me though mate, take my advise lightly

    Belt - 2 sides for this arguement

    Some say best to have it to support back
    Some say best not to as it'll encourage back top go strong.

    I don't and good for 240kg. (buit saying that I was careless the other day and hurt it when repping 220kg, but I doubt a belt would have helped)

    As for speed, there are LOTS of ways of doing things. I'd just recommend steady and controlled. You shouldn't be able to throw weights around as it should be too heavy, but you should be able to lift controlled and keep form. So just do it steady and controlled, anmd get a rull ROM (range of movement)

    Raw dead Lift 320kg
    Raw bench 171kg
    Shirted bench 200kg
    Amateur cage fighter @ 95 - 105kg
    :o)
