Use Your Belt For Bigger Lifts....

FACT-OF-THE-DAY-logo

I know some people that will say using a weightlifting belt during certain exercises is cheating and that engaging your core should be enough. Did you know that using a weightlifting belt isn't cheating and it can actually help you lift more during heavy compound movements. I recommend using your belt for exercises like squats, deadlifts, standing shoulder press etc. I don't recommend using one for seated bicep curls or other exercises where you don't need the support.

You see, a belt can help engage your core better and give you the stability you need to lift a heavier weight without the fear of not being able to do it. It's similar to having someone spot you but sometimes there isn't someone to do that, instead use your belt. I use this when I am doing a strength phase and want to feel secure on my 1RM for those compound lifts. Give it a go...
