Weightlifting belts are important elements used to protect the back, specially if you lift heavy weights.
Even if this part of our body is toned and strong, we can always get hurt. So, the main function of these belts is to increase the stability of the medium and lower spine.
What are these workout belts used for?
You should know that belts are not advised if you do low intensity physical exercise, since you will end up losing muscle tone in your lower back and belly areas. Thus, many people use belts as a protection because they have previously suffered an injury, but this is wrong, as the best way to avoid another injury is by changing the training routine.
Others use belts in order to protect an area that suffered an injury in the past. However, this is completely wrong and the best thing we can do is changing the workout routine.
There are several types of belts. Some are made of leather and are very rigid. These are ideal for heavy weightlifting. Whike others are made of nylon, more flexible and elastic, adapting better to the body shape, although they are not as stable. So these are better for less heavy weightlifting.
Also, there are dipping belts which have been specially designed for weightlifting. Without any doubt, this type is the most rigid belt and it provides the highest stability. In fact, this type of exercises can be potentially harmful for our lower back if they are not done properly.
Moreover, some models come with useful pockets and compartments to store your phone, wallet or keys.
