If you’re a frequent weight lifter then this is a must-have equipment for you. What the weightlifting belt does do is provide a proprioceptive cue to your torso to squeeze and tighten your core muscles harder when you’re lifting a heavyweight. Just as you can tense your bicep muscles more when you’re curling 20lb dumbbells than when you’re curling a couple of soup cans, your core muscles can tense up more when they’ve got something to push against. The weightlifting belt provides that pushback.
What feature will it give when you feel heavyweight?
When you’re under a heavy load, a lifting belt can help you prevent serious injuries, specifically – orthopedic ones. Make no mistake about it. When you’re moving 80% or more of your one-rep maximum while squatting or deadlifting, a belt can keep you injury-free while using an ideal form. Many would argue that a belt is necessary for individuals who can squat or deadlift 2X their bodyweight or more. The legs will respond better to training and grow faster than your abs and lower back. As such, a belt can make up for any imbalances between the strength of your legs and your core.
Does it protect your abs?
When wearing a belt, the intra-abdominal pressure inside you can increase by over 40%. In doing so, compression throughout your lower back discs can decrease by up to 50%. This leads to a vast reduction in pressure on your lower back. But it’s not all due to the belt. The belt isn’t supporting your spine. The belt supports your abs. The increased abdominal pressure is what supports the spine while you move heavyweight. It’s how your body reacts to the belt that provides benefit to your back and weight to your main lifts. Research has concluded that a belt ensures ideal biomechanics while squatting and deadlifting. A weightlifting belt will force you to lift more with your legs instead of your back. As your legs can adapt to heavy stimuli faster than any other muscle group, this is ideal. The belt improves biomechanics by reducing spinal extension, spinal flexion, and to a lesser extent, lateral flexion.
