    may make a separate thread for this, but the most pressing question i have right now is when to start wearing a belt

    i've heard plenty of people say 'oh only wear a belt for x weight and above', but that doesn't make any sense. i know the dude from powerliftingtowin basically suggests wearing a belt as soon as it's help so pretty much straight away... but as good as that advice is, i don't really wanna be the guy wearing a belt for his 200lb squats

    maybe I'll wear them for my Friday PR sets when I hit 2 plate squats again

    dunno about deadlift, I guess I should already be using it. do I need to reset or anything before I start using it in order to get used to it, or just wear it for all my warm up as well as work sets next time?

    Personally I'd belt up at around 60%.

    This is just from lack of a need for a belt any lower. Use belt for last few warm ups then worksets...

    Get belt asap.
    As MB said, belt up for last warm up and working sets.
    Make sure to get an approved belt if you're planning on competing

    I think the thing with belts is why let your core limit your compounds? It's not like it's not getting work if you use one, it just does it's thing better with a belt on. For sets, I wear mine sooner than I really need it, like 60-70%. Using a belt is a slightly different technique so I like to practice on a couple of warm up sets before I really need it

    Ignore the troll. He has a ****ing blog about which PC he should get but he's on here telling you to get a life. :rofl:

    Anyway in my humble opinion belts are most useful for squats, especially low bar, I don't really get much use out of them for deadlifts

    haha i appreciate the support, no idea if he was serious so i opted for tongue in cheek responses

    yeah i'm only thinking squats and deads at the mo, i'm running a *******ised version of the texas method so my plan is to squat beltless on volume day then stick on the belt for my PR sets on fridays - i just wanna wait til i'm 2 plates + again so save face that's probably a sub optimal plan really but hey. i squat high bar but commenters have claimed i look like i'm squatting low bar. maybe long femurs, maybe poor flexibility, maybe **** mechanics. but i'm not really fussed at the moment as my squats feel nicer now then they ever have before!

    wrt deads i should probably try out the belt now to see how it goes... so i think i'll give it a go next deadlift session!

    Haven't seen you squat so can't comment Hopefully I'll be posting a video of a volume high bar set soon just to check I don't have any butt wink. Yeah as long as your knees don't cave and your shoulder stays retracted you should be aight. We're pretty much exactly the same weight too! I'm like 72 atm

    knees caving is the one thing I'm still worrying about, it's hard to get a picture from a side view. may have to vid some squats from the front on / diagonal and see!
