    She is stupid. If anything belts help posture. But if you aren't doing heavy squats or deadlifts. Not necessarily needed. They take skill to learn how to use properly

    Re: getting rid of belts

    i don't advocate belts be used. i believe in training raw

    your ortho is right. using belts like that nonstop will absolutely create imbalances. so will other accessories like gloves, straps, wraps, etc.

    i can see you using a belt on a strong lift if you are a powerlifter maxing out for a competition or something, but to use a belt nonstop like that is absolutely wrong.

    also your posture can still get messed up without a belt. weight training actually causes a lot of damage to your spine and discs. you must decompress things. best way to do that is yoga atleast 1-2X per week

    Re: getting rid of belts

    well i'm 50 and a belt definitely helps if i'm doing certain movements. whatever works for you don't worry about other people

    There are certain lifts like squats, deadlifts and bent over rows where belts can help you, especially if you go heavy, and even more so if you are prone to back problems like me

    Re: getting rid of belts

    So one issue I've had for ages relates to core strength. Even then I'll only put on an actual weightlifting belt for the HEAVY shit. As in my top weights. Not the whole damn session.

    Re: getting rid of belts

    You shouldn't use a belt for your entire workout. That will lead to a weak core, and honestly bad form on some movements. Use it for heavy squats and heavy deadlifts for extra bracing etc. but don't use it for everything.
