Hey everyone, I just bought a toro lever belt from Titan, and after my first day squatting with it, I have some massive bruises/blood blisters all over my hips and upper thighs. Does anyone have any advice about this? Specifically:
Is this in any way normal, or should I be worried?
Am I wearing my belt wrong (if so, how should I wear it)?
Is there anything I can/should do to avoid this?
I felt some pinching while I was lifting, but it was nothing too bad, so it was pretty surprising/scary when I hit the locker room and like everything below my bellybutton was red and blue.
Any words of advice from the more experienced members would be greatly appreciated.
I’m going to the USAPL collegiate nationals in April, and it seems like doing this to myself every week until April has got to be a bad idea.
