When did you guys start using weightlifting belts?
Want to get an inzer but still moving baby weight.
160kg dead and 110kg squat @70kg bodyweight
Those are very decent lifts for that weight so I thought that you where a short thick guy. I'm also 5'7 but weigh 75 kg. My lifts are 135 didly, 100 kg squat for 4 reps and bench absolutely sucks at 60 kg.
Also, wear a fucking belt. Why wouldn't you?
how much do you squat and diddlydoo now? your THE PRESS is nice
173cm 75kg here (but probably more like 78 as of now), I'm squatting 104,5 DLing 109,5 and binching 62, all for 5
you're not the only guy with absolutely JUST bench, make sure that you've got your form in check, watch some Alan Thrall on it, I found out that mine was really lacking and now I'm trying to correct it so it may help you too
I recently got a red inzer lever belt, love it got it in 6 days got lucky af pretty much, first time used was way too tight on deads and it dug into my ribs and hips it was horrible. I still need to learn how to use it correctly.
around 1.5 BW squat for reps and 2BW diddlys for reps.
But I bought it basically for strict presses to keep the core tighter.
Honestly should have started using it earlier. Not for lifting more weights but for the safety. Since using it I don't feel a workout taxing my lower back hard anymore.
thanks for advice guys. i'm going with the inzer in op.
btw my lifts that i posted are 1rms. i was under the impression that everyone from fit diddled atleast 4 plate and squatted 3 so i always thought my weights were baby weights.
>I want something but only if society acknowledges me having it as acceptable
Holy fuck the definition of never making it sheep. Kill yourself.
Why even bother lifting?
You're anorexic. You would make better strength gains simply by eating more meat and not lifting than lifting which reduces your net calories.
I wanted a belt when I hit 325x5 on squats. After 315x5 my back started to feel really sore after each set. At this point I had already hit 405x5 on deadlift belt less, and 130x5 on OHP. By the time I got around to ordering the belt, I was up to 350x5 on squats. All of this was at 200 lbs.
Check George Leemans site musclemassochist. Click the store tab and there is a great belt for $55. It is not lever, but I'm fine with prongs. It is thick, made of real leather, and needs to be broken in a bit. I am a 35.5 inch waist and I use the second smallest setting on the large belt. The large looks like it would be good up to a size 41 or so waist.
>george? Why do you have a payment for $70 to muscle masochists on your statement?
It's actually on amazon not his site
I hope you like it, I know it certainly helps me
Do some exercise like squats that get you really sweaty to break it in, your juices will soak into the belt leather and soften it up
Those are pretty average lifts. But anyways belts are good if you use them for maxes or training specific. Don't over rely on them since you'll get bad habits (like unable to brace properly without the belts help)
Sorry for what seems like shilling, but most people I know haven't heard of the whole quick release thing, and Titan Support is like one of two companies I know who makes them
keep going until you get to about 170-175kg on dead and 130-145kg on squat imo. Keep in mind that an inzer will take you about a month to receive once ordered so plan ahead. Also, lever belts are meme tier.
>Unless youre going for a rep max/PR i wouldnt recommend the use of a belt.
I've failed all the PRs I've tried to do with a belt, except the 195kg squat I did, when I trained with a belt all month.
Wearing a belt takes practice, it won't do jack shit if you don't know how to use it and wearing it just for PRs will fuck up your movement patterns.
