Weightlifting Heavy Causing You Back Pain?

Weightlifting heavy?

You need to know about Unbroken Designs and how their weightlifting belts support your back and abdomen, by helping stabilize your entire midsection. Whether you are lifting a barbell, a couch, or doing tire flips; protecting your core is important. These belts even relieve stress from your lower back! Seriously, who wants back pain?!

Many athletic coaches believe that using a weightlifting belt is a crutch that can lead to reduced strength of the core and lower back muscles. The general population think that weightlifting belts act like a brace to support your torso so your core muscles don’t have to work as hard. This is not entirely true. In reality, weightlifting belts can actually help you increase the use of the abdominal and lower back muscles more efficiently and safely. The best weightlifters in the world use a belt while training to protect themselves, why shouldn’t you too?

In the past seven years, WODshop founder Jerry Lamigo has witnessed this community throughout the world as an athlete and coach of CrossFit. Having coached and trained at CrossFit “boxes” throughout California, Jerry has seen it all. From the early days when the CrossFit Games were held at a dusty ranch in Northern California to its evolution into a nationally televised sporting event held in Southern California’s infamous Stub Hub Center (formerly Home Depot Center), the sport has grown, but the core values have remained. These core values of the sport also constitute the inspiration and foundation of WODshop.
