Lift Weights With A Leather Weight Belt. What are the advantages of using a weight belt while squatting or deadlifting? According to the National Strength and Conditioning Association, the best reason to use a weight lifting belt is to increase intra-abdominal pressure, or pressure in your abdomen, during heavy or strenuous weight lifting. This pressure creates a rigid core, stabilizing your spine and helping increase your maximum power. This pressure also keeps your spine from collapsing under heavy weight.

What Is The Right Time To Use A Weight Belt? Use a Weightlifting or Powerlifting belt during heavy sets at or above 80 percent of your one-rep maximum. Use your belt for spinal support during heavy squatting and deadlifts. Lifts that usually require heavy lifting, and therefore a weight belt, include cleans, snatches and jerks. Free standing overhead lifts, like standing shoulder presses, also warrant the use of a weight belt.
