Re: Belts


Just from my personal experiences, I find it very hard to ‘use’ my core properly without a belt (I need something to push my abs out onto, can’t just do it for some reason). So any heavy squat (eg over 180kgs) I belt up for. I’d rather lift 20kg more with a belt, than 20kg less without one.

Only down side is with higher reps breathing hoop tension is a bit difficult (well for me anyway).
