      I have not worn a weight belt in years although I also do not go as heavy as I once did. Having said that what is the current thinking of wearing a weight belt when doing things like squates?

      First why are you wearing the belt?
      Need to think beyond belt/no belt.
      If the belt is keeping you from bad technique that is a bad thing.
      If the belt reinforces your good technique that is a good thing.
      If you aren’t use to using a belt it can through things off.

      The thinking on a belt has always been it can be a tool to help increase intra abdominal pressure so you can have better transfer of power through your trunk when loads get high. That has not changed. A belt doesn’t keep you “safe” or anything like that.
