Belts anyone

I have never seen anyone in CF wear a belt. Do you (especially for CF Total and max days)?

Thx

Re: Belts anyone

Smart people (i.e.people who care about getting stronger) wear a belt when lifting heavy.

Eh, this is a bit dramatic. Sure, you can generate a bigger Valsalva and larger passive extensor force. However, it also trains non-functional motor programming, resulting in non-specific core contraction. That's linked to increased incidences of back, SI, hip, leg pain, etc. Using a belt has its pro's, but also has its con's.

You totally nailed me working over that pizza at the street fair! haha

I wear a belt for heavy press, squats and deadlift. I typically use it for the work sets only. Yesterday was squat day and looked like this: 135x10 no belt, 185x5 no belt, 225x3 no belt, 275x3 no belt and 315 for 5,5, failure with belt.
