Looking for a good weightlifting belt for crossfit

Post by GingerBread »

Hi,

I've just started CrossFit and can sometimes feel the strain on lower back. I was wondering if a belt would help and if anyone has any recommendations?

Thanks in advance

Hi Gingerbread good to talk to you.

Belts act as an artificial support and may not activate the core properly, so unless you have a slight niggle or you're going for a 1RM, you don't need one.

If you're experiencing strain, then it is more than likely you just need to modify your technique.
