    belt for deads,squats & rows?

    should i wear a weight belt for deadlifts, squats, T-Bar, bent-over BB, & longbar rows? my hipbones stick out abnormally too far as it is & ive heard that wearing a belt helps to prevent your obliques from becomeing too blocky. yet the whole point of deads is to build the lower back. will wearing a belt defeat the purpose of deads? which exercises should i wear a belt with?

    I'd only wear a belt for heavy lifts.
    Wearing it elsewise hinders the stabilizer muscles from working and growing, as the belt is doing the stabilizing for you.

    It kills me tro see people wearing belts the whole workout...even for chest..WTF do you need a BACK belt for to work your chest??

    I've tried using a belt for bb rows and such, it just seemed to get in the way, and provided no help.

    I only use mine for heavy squats. That's just me

    I only use them on my last lift for squats and also for SLDL, I see no point in using them for any type of rows.

    It may be a good idea to use them for standing overhead press and I've seen people use them for HEAVY standing BB curls.
    Cool

    don't worry abou the term 'heavy'.
    What may be heavy for you amy not be heavy for others or vice-versa.
    Heavy is the weight that you can control in good/perfect form for 4 - 6 reps...

    good luck!

    There is NO research of value to support the 'fallacy' you just said. There has never been a research study where the used X-rays, CAT scans or MRIs where used inorder to show the difference in spine and stablizer muscles among bletless and none-beltless trainees. As a matter of fact there has been exactly the opposit of what you just said done. Research using EMG and muscle tension monitoring devices has shown that the use of belts can create circumstances for INCREASING rather than decreasing abdominal strength and stability.

    You'll find all the reasearch you ineed from Chaffin and Andersson, "Occupational Biomechanics" and Zatsiorsky's spinal research in "Science and Practice of Strength Trianing."
