Weightlifting Belt is Not Your Average Belt Which You can Simply Put on. There is a Proper Way to Use it. Moreover it Will Not Magically Protect Your Spine. It All Comes Down to How You will Wear it. So Follow These Steps While Using Your Belt

  1. Firstly You have to Choose Your Belt, Choosing Belt is Dependent on Your Size Too. Very First Thing You Need to Look at While Choosing Your Belt is Its Width. I will Recommend You to Start with 9-12 cm (width) Belt.
  2. Now You have to Choose Latches, You Have Few Option In this Too: One is Prong Type other Is Levers. I Recommend Levers.
  3. Now Put on the Belt and Your Belt Should Be Covering Your Belly Button, Moreover Brace Your Core and Put Figure in Between The Belt and Your Belly to Check Whether it is On Properly.

Most of the Time Text Doesn’t Helps Much So Here’s a Video on How to Wear a Belt Properly.

My Personal Opinion:

In My Opinion, You Should Wear Belt only In Your Starting Days, When You are Learning the Technique. Avoid Using the Belt When It is Not Necessary. Use it or Wear it only When You Have to Lift Heavy. Moreover, Don’t Depend on the Belt that Much. You Need to Learn the Technique as Quickly as Possible As You can Become Independent Don’t be Dependent on it.

I do a Lot of Lifting But My Weight is Basically Large Rocks and Trees Trunk So I Can’t Depend on theses Belts For Support. Depend Upon Your Shear Will and Strength For Lifting Weight. For More Detailed Information on the Topic Click Here.
