do you guys still use belts?


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about do you guys still use belts? within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: I just signed up to this gym and I swear half the dudes in there walk around with weight lifting belts, there is even this goofy old dude who walks around like wobbling around and he wears it and it is all crooked around his waist. Am I missing out on something or are belts necessary?

    I use a belt to do heavy squats so my back is controlled

    i don't recommend using belts, wraps, straps or gloves. i believe in raw lifting

    i would go a step further and say that belts hurt way more than help.

    Only on my very heaviest sets on some exercises.

    Example: SSB Hatfield Squats: bar x reps, 60kg x reps, 140kg x reps, 180kg x reps (support belt only) and then 220kg x reps with the proper belt on.

    It is up yo you, but if you do heavy squatting belt provides great support, no need for injuries

    I do for now which heavier lifts due to an umbilical hernia but after I get my surgery I will go back to not using one. Helps keep my core tight.

    It depends on the person and their goals/style of training but regular gym rats should just train raw IMO.
