Im sorry but if I see you wear a belt while squatting 110lbs (60% of a 180lb body weight) Im going to call you a nancy, tell you to stop squatting my curls bar bro, and point you to the yoga room.


the point is to strengthen your core (thats your entire spinal chain, abs, hips, erectors etc) so squatting 110lbs doesn't put you at risk of hurting your back. if you dont care about core strength, stop doing squats and stick to leg presses.

ah i see you edited your post to clarify 60-70% of your 1RM not your body weight. my arguement still applies tho. 60% of a noobs 1rm is like, the bar.

I dont think working weight in comparison to strength really counts here. By that I mean no matter how strong you are, the 100lb dumbbell will always hurt more than the 10lb dumbbell. lol not sure if I'm making any sense here.

Theres definetly a grace period where you train yourself to lift properly and strengthen your neural pathways and such. Personally, i dont really use weight belts and its all up to personal preference, but as i start to put on more weight to that bar, its going to become more of a consideration. Ultimately, it boils down to form. If you dont have that, no belt or any safety device is going to help prevent anything.

The belt should be designed to increase abdominal pressure, so if you dont have any of that, then the belt wont be of any use at all.

Then you're doing it wrong.

Either that, or you're proving rr's point perfectly

lol what type of strain? discomfort and pain are two really different things... If you feel pain when you're squatting, like a sharp piercing pain, then stop doing squats and get it checked out by a doctor...

If its discomfort, then man up, down a few pwos and go ham

Post a vid. If you're concerned about your safety use pegs.

Maxed out on squats today. Thought my technique was good at the time, but watching the video there are still lots of things I need to work on. I think I need to stay more upright and spread the knees more to get better depth. Thoughts?

you're not using your hips at all it seems

IMO go down in weight (like, a lot) and work on your form (a lot)

Another case against dat dere belt. It is cheating you out of a proper squat, and instead of getting bigger and stronger, you are just able to add more and more weight. If that's your intention, there's nothing wrong with that of course.
