So what is the most restrictive I guess should be my question.
So all allow a belt but only some wrist wraps?? Seems odd to me. Not saying your wrong just I thought you would have got a better carry over with a belt than wraps…?
I currently train with nothing (no wraps, belt, straps etc). Just wondering if using say a belt for my work sets would give me ‘more bang for my buck’ than not using one as I could add more weight. However I didn’t know how much classed as still lifting raw.
On a side note I saw a guy at the gym last night squatting 200kg in knee wraps and a 4" belt loving himself. Only problem was he was doing 1/4 depth squats…
Belts are considered raw in every federation I am aware of. The only people who don’t consider belts raw are internet tough guys. Except Stallion, he squats without a belt and he is a badass, but he is an exception.
Get a good belt, use it, the first time you squat in a real power belt your life will be changed and you will wonder why you ever wasted your time.
