Tight tight. Exactly. Can't get any tighter.

Vanfulco I would hold off using belt until your in the 75-80% range of 1RM. That's just my personal opinion.

One quick observation, a lot of people use a belt for the wrong reasons. I understand its for safety and all that gay jazz but too many times ill see guys belt up even before getting in the warm up sets. Lol must be safe when doing warm ups to prevent injury. But what berz said, try and belt up when doing 70-80% of 1rm.

More Reasons For Wearing A Belt | 70's Big

Good read about belts. The author actually argues that training with a belt will strengthen your trunk more than training beltless. I am inclined to agree with him from personal experience

I definitely see his point..

what I can't stand, are guys that wear a belt without having even established proper squat form... huge butt wink, knees past toes, collapsed chest, loose back, etc... which make up the majority of folks i see at the gym unfortunately. i know, because i used to be one of those guys lol...

alot of these guys learn along the way as they squat with thick belts

for me, one of the best ways to learn the squat properly has been doing super light weight and just getting the form down w/o a belt. At this point, my goal isn't even to get stronger, it's to establish that proper form..

that said, i think my form has improved a bit over the last month or so, so I'm considering the switch over to squatting with a belt soon.

it's definitely a technique/specificity thing. if you train with a belt, your body will adapt to traininng with a belt. if you train without a belt, your body will adapt to training without a belt. on that note, that a trained belted squatter has the potential to squat more than a trained beltless squatter...

yea 100%

i also feel that there is often a third variable that people forget when performing exercises is speed + quality of reps. whereas most people focus on weight and reps, they dont really focus on the speed the bar is moving. grinding out prs is fine every so often but i personally like to train all my lifts with a bit of speed

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

better leg drive, the more stable i am to the ground, the more connected i am to the ground, the more stable my bench is, and the reps go up faster and easier

the disadvantage though, is that i get too caught up with touching lower down in my torso that i start to use more of my back as opposed to my chest, when my chest is the more dominant bodypart.

i just gotta find a medium between the two i guess

theres a great article on him in the new yorker and strongman athletes in general
Brian Shaw, the Strongest Man in the World : The New Yorker

Quote:
Inch was an early-twentieth-century British strongman famous for his grip. His dumbbell, made of cast iron, weighed a hundred and seventy-two pounds and had a handle as thick as a tin can, difficult to grasp. In his stage shows, Inch would offer a prize of more than twenty thousand dollars in today’s currency to anyone who could lift the dumbbell off the floor with one hand. For more than fifty years, no one but Inch managed it, and only a few dozen have done so in the half century since. “A thousand people will try to lift it in a weekend, and a thousand won’t lift it,” Sorin told me. “A lot of strong people have left with their tails between their legs.” It came as something of a shock, therefore, to see Shaw reach over and pick up the dumbbell as if it were a paperweight. “He was just standing there with a blank look on his face,” Sorin said. “It was, like, What’s so very hard about this?”
