Disadvantages Of Weight Belts In Training

Onlymyhealth Editorial Team, Date:2014-10-29
A common misconception about the weight belt is that is supports your spine during normal, moderate weight training. However, the weight belt is too narrow and rigid to provide proper spinal support in this case. Weight belts, when used improperly, discourage the use of your own core and abdominal muscles, muscles that are necessary to build and help protect your spine. When they are used as a crutch, they can actually weaken your abdominal muscles. Our fitness expert Akshay Chopra tells us about what are the disadvantages of weight belts in training.
