EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WEIGHTLIFTING BELTS

WHY WEAR A WEIGHTLIFTING BELT?

Weightlifting belts are a great piece of fitness gear that are designed to help remind athletes to properly engage and brace their core throughout a movement. 

WHEN TO WEAR A WEIGHTLIFTING BELT? 

There are different recommendations depending on skill/training level, but many coaches and athletes agree that belts can be used once an athlete has properly learned how to brace their core and can begin incorporating a weightlifting belt when attempting lifts above 80% of their current 1RM. 

HOW TO PROPERLY WEAR A WEIGHTLIFTING BELT?

To properly use a weightlifting belt you have to make sure your size is correct. Once you have the correct size you can place the belt around your belly button, ABOVE THE HIPS (unlike a belt to hold up your pants), and take the velcro strap around and through the WODclamp/fastening buckle. Once through the WODClamp suck in your core and tighten for solid support. 

HOW DO YOU SIZE YOURSELF FOR A WEIGHTLIFTING BELT?

To size a weightlifting belt take a tailor’s tape measure and place it around your torso, around the belly button area. Once you have slightly tightened the measuring tape around your waist, take the measurement number and apply it to our sizing chart.  

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF WEIGHTLIFTING BELTS?

The three different belts we offer are the 4” Straight belt, 3” Petite straight belt, and the metcon belt. 

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE THE OFFICIAL BELT OF USA WEIGHTLIFTING?

We are the official belt of USA weightlifting which means we are not only IWF approved belts to wear in competitions, but we are also backed and support by USA weightlifting and we also have collaborations with some of your favorite olympic weightlifters like MAttie Rogers, CJ Cummings and Jourdan Delacruz. 

WHAT IS THE WODCLAMP AND WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

The WODClamp is our spin on the velcro belt fastener. The WODClamp allows you to: 1. Extend the life of your velcro by taking pressure off of your velcro strap. 2. Allows for extra security to eliminate the chances of your belt falling off during a lift. 3. Allows the belt to stay on you throughout the workout by allowing you to tighten and loosen your belt without it fall off!

WHAT TYPES OF ATHLETES WEAR WEIGHTLIFTING BELTS?

All levels of athletes from beginners to elite competitors wear our belts! Whether you are into weightlifting, CrossFit, powerlifting, or any type of strength training. 

WHAT DON'T WEIGHTLIFTING BELTS DO?

A weightlifting belt does NOT take the place of your core. It does not make up for lack of form or training. It is meant to be a reminder, not a replacement for proper core engagement.
