It doesn't give much info, but it does highlight anything below 80% of 1RMs should be done with no belt if possible and to remove the belt between sets; both of which you probably do. It also highlights that the belt restricts movement in L4-L5 area of the back etc. It may be of some use to you.
Thanks for the link. I don't know off the top of my head what percentage of my 1 rm my 5rm works out to. I do know it feels heavy enough to me that I feel the need for the extra support when deadlifting.
I always remove my belt when not in use and only use it on the heaviest set.

This is actually an interesting point. I have kind of lacked on fiber this week, for whatever reason. And have been on a meat and potato type diet. This could be having some sort of impact. I don't want to get TMI on everyone, but I'll be eating salad at lunch because the system isn't regular this morning.....
I almost am considering not posting this. Sorry guys if that was too much info.

I always remove my belt when not in use and only use it on the heaviest set.
The digestive/regular motion points are important ones; when the stomach is full there is more pressure on the chest area because the lungs cannot expand as far downwards as they should be able to and so breathing is restricted, add a belt and you get even further restrictions on the breathing. The fullness of the stomach can also cause food to be forced back up into the throat and for GERD/acid reflux to take place; using a belt under those circumstances could add to the problem, since even squatting and movements that place added pressure on the abdominal area can cause the reflux to occur even without the addition of more tension in the form of a belt.


I read way too much stuff

All jokes aside depending on your build a lot has to do with belt placement. I like mine higher in the back than the front. I feel that if its a little lower in the front it allows for a bigger first breath. I also dont normally do a work set of more then 3 reps so my advice may not apply.
LoL! That's good stuff. Only at MaB will you get advice like this....

Josh, most stuff I've read has said as your weight goes up most of your lifts will go up too. But at a certain point if your weight keeps climbing your Deadlift will start to stall, there are various reasons for this, the belt not allowing you to get down is probably one of the reasons.

Anecdotally I have noticed the same thing on the few occasions I reached 220-230lbs bodyweight, bending over and picking up the bar was considerably more of a struggle than when I'm my usual 190-200lbs.

I don't think the ab-size is a major factor here, unfortunately Sorry bro, I don't mean anything bad with this but I think it's a bodyfat issue.

No doubt my weight could be a factor. I'm not sloppy fat, but I'm not a lean dude either. Thanks for the insight.
