  1. You need to get one. And you should be fine to do chest. Assuming you aren't throwing 315 around and arching your back like crazy.

    Why would one "need" a belt. That just takes the core stabilization away (by that I mean doesn't strengthen the core as much) which would ultimately lead to more back problems due to the weakened core muscles. Yes?

    Not when already injured. It would be like using a knee brace if you have recently injured your knee and aren't 100%

    I was reading that to mean using it at all times...

  5. I've never thought about using one. It makes sense to use one when injured but I think Id rather rest my back and let it heal up than support it and possibly tweak it because I'm feeling good.

    Belt can help. I almost always wear one bc of back problems. What's really important though is your core. I like to at least do a light core workout before all major muscle groups, especially back. Will help keep your spine stabilized.

    Emphasis needs to be on light though because too much will fatigue your core and lead to spinal instability.

    Belts are for support. Wearing a belt helps stabilize your CORE. Wearing a belt doesn't take away from your core strength. I use a belt every back day and after rowing 185 and 225 for a few sets along with t bar rows the extra support helps. And erectors are still the next day so obviously they are working.

    Yes it stabilizes your spine but using a belt to stabilize the spine takes away from the cores activation because the primary function of our core is to stabilize the spine. Therefore when one were to stop using the belt they would have a weakened core from relying upon the belt which could lead to more injury. Much like using a lifting strap takes away from the development of your grip strength which leads one to rely upon those tools.

    I USE straps and my grip is much stronger than what it was before I didn't use them.

    I can guarantee the straps are not what strengthened your grip.

    This

  13. Well todays chest workout was unreal!
    I was a little gun shy about throwing around some weight but my back held up just fine. From last week I feel that my bench has grown a little from incline,flat and decline. I hit the weights with a lot of aggression today ad it felt great! I usually find it hard to channel aggression when I lift because I'm a pretty calm guy. I usually rely on focus and energy to push out extra weights and reps.
    So far so good guys!

    I have to use them for my heavier sets of DL and shrugs. But I try to go without them for as long as I am able so I can strengthen my grip to the point where I will no longer need them at all.

    For something like shrugs or heavy rows i think theyre of assistance, but I just always think of those as secondary measures to increase my grip strength.

    I don't use them for the rows but I also don't row 300 pounds :P

    If my grip ever becomes the weak link on an exercise I will use them, for example on later sets of deads or RDLs where my grip has been exhausted but my legs/back can still handle the extra weight

    That's how I tend to use them.

  20. Today I did back minus deadlifts.. The work out felt amazing. I am noticing increased vascularity and I am drying out quite a bit. I am sort of bloated though.. Anyone else experience that?

    sounds like fun, keep it safe man. have you considered substituting leg press for squats? sounds like your a free weight type of guy that's why I ask.

  22. I do squats as part of my leg routine or big lift days. The only reason why I was using a machine when I got hurt was to rep out at the end of my workout. That didn't end well LOL

    That's exactly my point. I row 225 for reps and 100-130's for one arm db rows. I like to concentrate on feeling the muscle not worry about grip. Anyway. Back to the OP. not here for a pissing contest about straps bro.

    DAA sometimes makes me retain water, even on an AI. It usually clears up a bit further into the cycle though.

  25. Starting DAA and Erase next as soon as my order arrives. I'm In!!!

  26. Nice!
    Well I have been off the gym for the last two days but I do very physical work for a living, so I am getting my workouts in! I am looking even more cut and there are veins in my biceps that I've never had before! So far
    So good!!

  27. Little update.
    I haven been able to work out as hard as I wanted to in the first 6 days of this stack.. But I am back at it hitting the weights hard. I am noticing separation now between muscle groups that I didn't have before. Especially in my traps! I can tell my test levels are elevated because I am getting crazy acne on my face and I am pretty quick to get mad without thinking about it. It's day twelve of this cycle and from why I read, the biggest results are yet to come!
