In the fall of this week so like 6 months from now

2018-03-06 15:56:10 UTC  

Is squatting 315 without a belt stupid?

2018-03-06 15:56:15 UTC  

I weigh 168 btw

2018-03-06 16:46:28 UTC  

Not necessarily

2018-03-06 16:46:50 UTC  

But it's probably best to use a belt if you're worried about it

2018-03-06 16:47:24 UTC  

I squat beltless for almost all of my training

2018-03-06 16:48:21 UTC  

Especially if you're doing lowbar you should probably wear a belt above 85%

2018-03-06 16:48:30 UTC  

Depends, do you normally use a belt and what % of your 1rm is it

2018-03-06 16:49:15 UTC  

But I don't use one and have forgotten to tighten my belt for multiple lifts and training beltless has made it fine

2018-03-06 16:50:15 UTC  

I don't ever go above 85% in training either but that's my program

2018-03-06 16:51:44 UTC  

You run conjugate Saxon?

2018-03-06 16:53:25 UTC  

I run Sheiko programs

2018-03-06 16:54:59 UTC  

Fucking Russia

2018-03-06 16:55:15 UTC  

Meddling in our gains

2018-03-06 16:58:20 UTC  

I have been colluding with Russia

2018-03-06 17:03:02 UTC  

I know an old guy with a pacemaker who runs Sheiko. Idk how it hasn’t killed yet

2018-03-06 17:09:05 UTC  

Yeah that doesn't sound safe hahaha

2018-03-06 17:09:26 UTC  

Or maybe it's more safe because he has a robo heart 🤔

2018-03-06 17:57:00 UTC  

315 is my 1RM

2018-03-06 17:57:10 UTC  

I've actually never used a belt

2018-03-06 17:59:27 UTC  

Don't worry about it then

2018-03-06 17:59:53 UTC  

Maybe consider buying one, but I personally like training beltless. Strengthening the body independent of equipment

2018-03-06 22:16:55 UTC  

All belt does is help you brace to create more internal pressure. As long as you’re staying tight you’re good. Also if you get one, I’d recommend getting a quality leather one

2018-03-06 22:18:00 UTC  

Or develop the bloatmaxx keg of peace

2018-03-06 22:39:16 UTC  

13mm or bust

2018-03-06 22:43:43 UTC  

hmmm I'd get a Olympic weightlifting belt

2018-03-06 22:43:57 UTC  

not too much of a crutch and not flimsy either

2018-03-06 23:14:21 UTC  

I’m with Nick, 13mm or bust. My belt is awesome now that it’s really breaking in. No belts for Olympic lifts as I don’t compete weightlifting

2018-03-06 23:14:34 UTC  

But I do love the c&j

2018-03-07 00:29:01 UTC  

Love me some OHpress

2018-03-07 00:29:20 UTC  

And I always use a belt for those, especially if I'm going heavy

2018-03-07 00:40:12 UTC  

OHP is always such a humbling exercise for me. I expect it to be so much easier than it is because of my bench and it never is

2018-03-07 00:43:31 UTC  

my ohp is surprisingly not that shit

2018-03-07 00:43:57 UTC  

compared to my bench atleast

2018-03-07 01:11:35 UTC  

It's taken a lot of practice for me to make my ohp even comparable to my bench

2018-03-07 01:11:54 UTC  

I thought the two would translate to being similar but they're just not

2018-03-07 01:11:59 UTC  

For me, anyway

2018-03-07 02:48:09 UTC  

I can ohp bodyweight but I’m a manlet so

2018-03-07 02:48:20 UTC  

I want 225 ohp

2018-03-07 02:55:28 UTC  

200 would be good enough for me rn

2018-03-07 03:10:00 UTC  

I'm guessing ohp isn't one-handed press
