Re:Women's Lifting Belt
The belt gives you support around the abdominal area by once you have tightened your belt you push your tummy against it....inhale and fill your lungs, hold and lift! This all serves the purpose of creating a 'solid' mid section during heavy lifts and so by preventing injury. If the belt is one that is narrower at the front there is less surface area the 'press' against. The support for you back actually comes from the front....if that makes sense lol. I will see if I can upload a photo on me belted lifting.
