Making The Best Use Of Weightlifting Belts

You may not realize that there are several different ways to get the most out of the weightlifting belts that you are using to aid in your workout. [Weightlifting Equipments]

Changing your rhythm

You are probably thinking that this refers to the music that you are listening to; but it really is talking about the specific patterns that you use as you pump iron and change weightlifting belts on and off.

You do not need to stick to the same old patterns of 1, 2, 3, 4… switch off. Using the lighter weights for more repetitions is the normal routine; but try doing only five or six repetitions with one of the lighter weighted weightlifting belts then switch off to a heavier weighted belt for the same 5 or 6 repetitions.

Go from lightest to heaviest

Okay, you are probably saying “That will not get any results; except for aches and pains!” The thing here is that you only need to do this for 3 to 5 repetitions at a time. This is a different way to build your endurance by using major changes but only in moderation.

When you switch off between the lightest to the heaviest weightlifting belts you need to change your approach very quickly; thus you are always thinking on your feet so to speak.

Use several different brands

This one may be a bit of a surprise to you; but each set of weightlifting belts has its own set of characteristics that are somewhat different from each other.

It is these slight differences that can make a world of difference in your workout and in your results. If you don’t think that this is true; try it and see for yourself.

Changing the number of repetitions and sets

This does not mean only going from 5 repetitions per set and 5 sets like that. This means doing 2 sets of 5 repetitions with the lightest of your weights; then changing to one of the heavier weightlifting belts and changing up to 5 sets of 10 reps each. This helps you build up your muscles with the heavier weights and tone up with the lighter ones.

Using only one set weight for each workout

You may or may not agree with this one depending upon your particular workout pattern. Try changing the way you look at this and look for different ways to make this even better.
