Core Support and Spinal Stability

Weight lifting belts play a crucial role in providing support to the core muscles and stabilising the spine during heavy lifts. By creating intra-abdominal pressure, these belts help reduce the stress on the lower back, preventing injuries and promoting proper form.​

Increased Intra-Abdominal Pressure

One of the primary advantages of weight lifting belts is their ability to increase intra-abdominal pressure. This pressure acts as a natural weightlifting support system, offering additional stability to the core and minimising the risk of spinal injuries. This is important during compound movements like squats and deadlifts.

FAQ's

Most frequent questions and answers about weight lifting belts

This question has been highly debated over the years. There really is no right or wrong, it’s totally a matter of personal opinion and what support you feel your body needs. Weight lifting belts are generally recommended to use when your exerting yourself and lifting weight that is testing your limits. Another view is that you should not only wear a weight belt when pushing heavy weight, but to also wear a belt when you are feeling fatigued, as injuries can occur when you are tired and complacent.

There are many different types of weight lifting belts/training belts, from the traditional tapered leather belt to the neoprene belt, both available in 2 model options 4 inch or 6 inch width, as opposed to the Powerlifting belts which are only available in one width 4″ end to end.

Weight lifting belts are the best accessory on the market for ensuring your back is supported while you lift – while weightlifting is a great way to keep your body in shape, keep you challenged, and bring you confidence, it doesn’t come without risks. Plenty of weightlifters deal with stress in their lower back from upright position lifts and back hyperextension during overhead lifts. This stress comes from the fact that your spinal erector muscles often produce less force during a lift. These muscles are essential to providing support to your lower back, so it’s a problem if they’re not being utilised during your workouts. Left unattended, lifting without proper support can result in pain within your back and could lead to long-lasting damage. Not only will this influence how effectively you can lift, but it will also lead to longer-term issues if left unattended. However, there is a solution that means you don’t have to give up on lifting to achieve the physique you want: weight lifting belts! Weight lifting belts and variations such as a dipping belts are a great way to minimise stress on the lower back and eliminate hyperextension. In addition, a weight belt will allow you to do all the lifts you’re used to without being concerned about any potential risks involved.

Here at Rappd, we offer a variety of weight belts, such as a powerlifting belt as well as a leather weightlifting belt. Therefore, it’s important to assess your needs for your workouts to determine which weight belt can give you the best assistance – whatever it may be; we’ll have you covered! Our traditional tapered leather weightlifting belt comes in two sizes: 4-inch or 6-inch width, depending on your sizing needs. These lifting belts are perfect for anyone looking for a dipping belt that will provide you with durability, longevity, and a premium feel. In addition, there are ten adjustment holes for any weight fluctuation, which means you can tailor your belt to your comfort level. As well as our leather weightlifting belt range, we also provide neoprene weight lifting belts in a 4-inch or 6-inch width. This weight belt is intended to provide a maximum level of functionality and support with a slick 9mm heavy-duty Velcro finish. So if you’re looking for a weight belt that’s sure to give you the support you need, this one’s the way to go. The difference between this belt to a leather weightlifting belt is purely a matter of personal taste – they both provide an excellent functional basis for keeping your back supported, but some people may prefer the feel of Velcro to leather (or vice versa) for comfortability. We also offer a dipping belt, which provides the same support as a regular lifting belt with the added component of a strap to attach a weight to. This is intended to provide more challenges for dip exercises when your body weight is simply not enough. Our dipping belt collection comes in both leather and neoprene models and is designed with function and ease in mind. If you want to perform plenty of squats and deadlifts, then a powerlifting belt is the one for you. These are more rigid and straight than their weight lifting belts counterpart, so they can assist better with powerlifting manoeuvres. In addition, our powerlifting belts come in a 4-inch size and have ten adjustment holes to account for weight fluctuation.
