I’ve noticed with myself that whenever I use a belt for Deadlifting, my back rounds more than without a belt. This happens straight from the first rep.
Most of the times a can pull the same weight without a belt (but far less reps, slower etc) with a straight back.
I think it’s because I’m using the belt the same way as I do with Squats. I breathe in and push out against the belt. But because I push out it feels like my back will round because of it.
Does that make any sense or should I look at other culprits?
Should I just ditch the belt for Deads?
