This is a question I get ALL the time.

Personally I don’t use a belt unless I’m working heavy percentages of my 1RM (approximately >80%) or doing high volume work with relatively high reps.

But what does the research say?
Does it really improve your performance?
Does relying on it actually weaken your core?

Fantastic breakdown by @thestrengthcontinuum & @gregnuckols

You’ve likely used a weight belt at some point in time in your lifting career. You’ve also probably heard differing thoughts and opinions on using them.
..
“Using a belt will make your core muscles weak,” or “using a belt is a crutch that will allow you to lift more than you are actually able to,” are common things that are said when talking about belts.
..
But, what does the research say? @gregnuckols put together an awesome resource (The Belt Bible) that took a look at just that.
..
These are some of the big takeaways that we had from that article.

What are your thoughts on using a weight belt? Use it all the time? Never? Just during your heavy sets? Let us know what you think below!
