5 Reasons Why You Should Use a Weight Belt

Why using weight belts will help you with your training.

The Weight belt or lifting belts have been around for a long time and widely used in varied lifting and fitness activities.

Below are some points as to why wearing a weight belt can help you with your lifts and prevent injuries.

  1. SUPPORT YOUR CORE
  2. PREVENT INJURY
  3. INCREASE WEIGHT SAFELY
  4. PREVENT HERNIAS
  5. REDUCE STRESS ON LOWER BACK

Lifting Belts brace your back, though the support comes from the pressure applied to the core. Its recommended to place the belt around your naval firmly but not too tight. Leave a little space for you to breathe comfortably, as breathing during your lifts is imperative.

When you are pushing or pulling the weight exhale and push your stomach out against the weight belt. This will result in IAP (Intra-abdominal pressure) which may reduce disc compressive force and improve lifting safety.
