ALL ABOUT BELTS! I just posted a 5 minute Friday to give you an overview of what you should know (and be able to do) before using a belt in your training. Check out my tips below, or click the link in my bio to watch the video 💕 my belt is from Inzer. 🌺 1. You Should Learn to Lift Beltless - when you’re starting, don’t use a belt. Learn how to properly increase intra-abdominal pressure and aid spinal stabilization without needing a belt. ⭐️ Also keep in mind that training with a belt does not protect against, or replace poor technique and improper bracing. Focus on creating tension with your body, and dial in your set up and execution of the lift with proper bracing. ✨ 2. When you’re ready, you should still train without a belt at times. Periodize your training, where you have some beltless work intentionally programmed. 🌈 Belt-less training is important, but keep in mind that it lacks specificity for powerlifters, and belt training (if you compete with a belt) should be more frequent when getting closer to competition time. 🌼 3. Sizing and Fit: When thinking about what kind of belt you need, think about these things: 🌺 Competition Standard: If you’re competing, ensure the belt is competition standard 🌸 Width: does it fit in between your ribs/hips? Try to avoid placing it on bone, and get it on your abdomen and low back. There are some lifters who prefer the belt to sit on their ribs, I am not one of them. 🌺 Thickness: thicker the belt, the more rigid your core should be, if you’re using it properly. That thickness can interfere with dynamic lifts like the clean & jerk. 🌸 Tightness: you should be able to stick a finger, or all of them between your belt and body. You need room for abdominal expansion, so yes, you can have a belt that is too tight. 🌺 How to brace: If you don’t know how to brace, then there is no need to wear a belt.
YEAUHHHHH Set of 4 OHP at 95lbs! Put on the lil big plates to CELEBRATE! To be doing working sets at 95lbs is really exciting. Finishing up week 6 of #UPLIFTED BOYYYYEEE. My 1RM is 100lbs that I’ve hit very inconsistently over the past few years. Hopefully one day I’ll rep out 100 🤔 QUICK TIP: when the press gets hard, squeeze your glutes. The harder you squeeze, the more likely you are to finish the rep. Also reference @becchambersfit most recent IG video. She’s a true gem.
Thank you to everyone who reached out and messaged me after I was feeling a lil down yesterday. Today’s a new one. We gunna make it. I’ll be in Los Angeles next week, shooting product shots for @strongstrongsupply including these hats. The Canadian side of our business calls this a ‘touque’, which is a much better word than ‘beanie’ but it’s a hat. This + One Strong Bitch + Iron is the Blackest Metal and more coming next Tues, March 27th. Follow our company @strongstrongsupply and let us know what else you want to see 💕👌🏻 Love you all 💕👌🏻
BRUH. Lol did you catch the eye roll? 🙄 My weightlifting Friends snobbery is rubbing off on me. 310lbs for 5 sets of 3. I didn’t notice, but GODDAMN MY START POSITION IS THERRRRRREE. Ok I’m out. Happy Tuesday 👺
265lbs/120kg for 5️⃣ 😊 on week #6 of #UPLIFTED and I’m pleased with how smooth this set felt. Switched to trying to squat with flats and still getting the hang of it, overall I can’t notice a difference in low bar at all.
