    Default Weight lifting belts

    Hey all,

    Iím after some advice/tips on weight lifting belts as I have never owned or used one before and am not an experienced bodybuilder.

    At what sort of weight do you start using a belt for your heavy compound lifts and does it stop you building a stronger core?

    Any advice/tips would be much appreciated.

    Cheers!

    When you start maxing out of heavy doubles or triples.

    A weightlifting belt should be used judiciously and only when you really need one, and you only really need one whenever there's a heavy load on your spine.

    Using lifting belt depends upon your level of lifting weight. You should not use weight lifting belt if you're just a beginner, because the core function of weight lifting belt is to provide support to your spine and back muscles while lifting heavy weight. Instead of focusing on advanced workout, weight lifters should focus on other aspects of weight lifting where they can train their muscles much for facing upcoming challenges in workout.

    I got a belt but never use it. I hate wearing it. I do use straps though for heavy DB rows. Sounds a bit funny but i have small hands & my grip does give in too quickly. straps allow me to train heavy & concentrate on my lats. Sorry but i have pussy hands but a few women have said i have a "nice touch"...

    Fred Hatfield recommended no belt at less than 80% of max.
