    Lifting Belt

    Hey, I was wondering what to look for in a good lifting belt?

    I'm now doing squats super low past 90' and it kills my lower back after a while.

    was wondering if the generic belts from sports authority were good cause ive got lifting hooks from them and they wore out in 2-3 months

    I have a belt but haven't found it really helps me. I also squat very deep. I would focus on form first and go a bit lighter. Work up to heavier weight as you perfect your form. A belt can help you lift a bit heavier as your abs have something to push against. I'm not sure it will do anything for back pain though.

    Lifting Belt

    The main thing when shopping for a lifting belt is comfort. Literally do some squats in the store with it on before buying it.

    A weight belt will increase pressure around your core and provide stability. It won't necessarily prevent injury. If you are having back pain, there might be something incorrect with your squat form.

    Do you regularly see a chiropractor? Are you taking any joint supplements?

    a belt will not prevent injuries but it can weaken your core bigtime. if you have back pain from squats then you either have an existing injury or you are not using proper form. MOST guys in the gym I see do squats use improper form, especially the ones who use belts. it goes hand in hand.

    Personally, I don't like these belts, and if I feel pain in the lower back when doing squats, I either take lighter weights, or just control my form to avoid the pain.

    belts are to protect from hernias

    I'm not an advocate of belts at all. As mentioned, the key is proper form with appropriate weight. My opinion is the belt gives a false sense of security and allows people to push more weight with improper form at an increased chance of injury. I have had lower back surgery and don't use a belt all. That said, I also ain't pushing as much weight as I would like. Just my 2 cents.

    belts are not designed to protect your back

    I personally am not a fan of weight belts as they have never helped my lower back. Fully warming up before lifting and making my legs and core stronger have helped my lower back the most
