What are you views on wearing a belt during (training) squats and deadlifts? I used to wear it during my last 1-2 work sets. I now only wear a belt when I get to mid 400s. I found the belt was hampering my technique and causing me to emphasize my lower back during the movement. Since throwing the belt off, I am able to maintain a more vertical torso in both lifts and maintain proper mechanics. Thoughts?
Why do we lose strength after a meet? I know there's probably explanations about this but it's an age old question. No matter what you do or what you use it's inevitable right? Is there a way to avoid this?
It is interesting that you don't have your feet flat on the ground-I don't either but all the "top benchers" keep telling me I need to have my feet flat on the floor for leg drive-apparently not since you are a top bencher and you are up on your toes too-your thoughts?
