Tip #6:Stop wearing that weightlifting belt

Wearing a weightlifting belt doesn’t really do you any good unless you plan on participating in a powerlifting meet. Powerlifters use this contraption to stabilize their bodies because  they lift a s**tload of weight. Normal people like us however can do away with this because without it we recruit our stabilizing muscles. This will translate into better coordination and a stronger core long term. So ditch the belt and focus more on your form and properly bracing your core. You’ll thank me later on.
