      • Ligament Tears
      • Rotator Cuff Injuries
      • Hernias
      • Lower Back Injuries
      • Joint Injuries
      • Stress Fractures
      • Overtraining Injuries
      • Shoulder Impingement
      Do you have any strange injuries you have experienced or heard of?

      Common weightlifting/bodybuilding injuries include strains, sprains, and overuse issues, often affecting shoulders, lower back, and knees. Weightlifting belts preventing injuries by providing support to the lower back and promoting better lifting mechanics.

      For those who have seen these weightlifting belts so tight it looks painful, here is some helpful guidance:-

      1. Snug Fit: The belt should be snug around your waist, but not so tight that it restricts your breathing or feels uncomfortable. You should be able to take a deep breath and brace your core against the belt.

      2. Positioning: Place the belt above your hip bones and below your ribcage. It should cover your lower back and abdominal muscles. Make sure the belt is centred on your spine.

      3. Adjustability: Many weightlifting belts have adjustable settings, so you can tighten or loosen them according to your preference and the type of lift you're performing. For example, you might want it a bit tighter for squats and deadlifts than for less demanding exercises.

      4. Consistency: Once you find a comfortable and effective tightness level, try to maintain consistency. Wearing the belt at the same tightness for similar lifts can help you establish a familiar and supportive feeling.
