The purpose of a weightlifting belt is to produce more intra-abdominal pressure when you’re doing such exercises as squats and deadlifts. The weight lifter's belt keeps the stomach from expanding, allowing you to more effectively squeeze and brace your core when lifting.
The increased core pressure that is generated when you wear your weightlifting belt helps you to lift more weight. That’s because the lifting belt serves as a proprioceptive cue. Weightlifting belts reminds you to breathe and apply pressure against the belt.
To get the best out of your belt you need to know how to wear it. Place the belt around your belly button region. Don’t make the mistake of making it too tight. It should be slightly loose, ideally a notch back from a tight fit. The slight gap will permit you to expands the stomach into the belt as you continue to draw air into your stomach and expel it against the bracing that the belt offers.
You should limit your use of a weightlifting belt to your big exercises, such as
Even with these moves, you should only use the belt during your heaviest, low rep sets. Keep the belt off during your higher rep warm up sets. A good point of reference is to strap on your belt when your reps get to eight or below.
If you are a fitness / weight training beginner , you probably don’t need a weight belt at all. Your body needs to learn how to breathe and brace itself naturally when using a heavy resistance prior to relying on a training aid. Continue without the belt until you have been training for a year.
