Re: Weight belts again

I have only been around the CrossFit community for about 3 months but have been lifting for more than 20 years.

As stated above, belts are a useful tool. The caveat I would like to add is: depending on your goals.

Personally, I do not use a belt. I did in my younger years when numbers were my priority. Now my goal is functional strength. If a 600 pound log falls and pins my son am I going to tell him to hold on a few while I go grab my belt and straps or am I just going to attack the log?

My opinion is use a belt if you want to but please learn proper form first.
