    Never tried one, but it seems like it would work.

    How about front squats on a smith machine or regular squats on a smith. At least it would take a lot of pressure off of your back, and I'm sure you already belong to a gym, so it wouldn't cost you any more cash.

    That's all the more reason to incorporate them. Try them out, don't try to set any records, slow and controlled until you get the movement down.

    There you go, it won't hurt to try it out.

    I hope you do like that belt and continue to lift.

    It has more to do with the compression of the bar on spine

    IRONMIND BELT

    The belt is a good quality belt.

    However, using it with a barbell is funky.

    The bar see-saws up and down, as you squat.

    SPUD BELT SQUAT BELT
    http://www.liftinglarge.com/Spud-Belt-Squat-Belt-Womens

    The women's size belt usually works best for most individuals. More on that in a second.

    The Spud Belt is much easier to get in and out of compared to the IronMind belt.

    LOADING PIN
    http://www.liftinglarge.com/Olympic-loading-Pin

    What you also need is a loading pin.

    This is what you will hook the Spud Belt to for Belt Squats.

    BOXES

    You need a couple of boxes to stand for Belt Squats.

    CHAIN AND CARABINERS

    You also need some chain to hook to the Spud Belt and Loading Pin,

    VIDEO


    This video give you an idea of how it look.

    WEIGHT

    You can load a 15 inch loading up with 500 lbs.

    BENEFIT OF BELT SQUATS

    With traditional squats, the legs rarely get overloaded.

    The lower back is the weak link in the chain.

    Thus, the lower back tries (get overloaded) long before legs are maximally trained.

    Belt Squat place the entire work load on the legs, maximally overloading them.

    SPINE

    For individuals with back problems, Belt Squat skirt that issue.

    Have you tried Zercher squats?
    If gunners were as violent as anti-gunners believe, logically there wouldn't be any anti-gunners left.

    I've used a self-made version of the hip-belt squat and I really love them. I did them when I hurt my back, they are a really effective to train your legs hard without engaging your upper body.
