    I meant to ask this earlier. Can't believe nobody else did by now. Maki, why do you think these articles are bollox? One of the PT's at work was familiar with this concept and was anti- weight belts.

    That PT is probally a follower as he is known to have a lot of groupies.

    "Test all things; hold fast what is good.": 1 Thessalonians 5:21

    "I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God--through Jesus Christ our Lord!"

    i would use a belt for lower ( 5 or less) rep sets because presumably your nearest your 1 rep max. I would think this is the most dangerous or risky lift because of the weight involved and all the stress all over the body.-also most likely to have a breakdown of form.
    I do not use a belt though as I squat and dead in the higher rep range-less weight would imply a less risky movement
