How important is it to have a belt on while deadlifting or squatting?
I was never a fan of deadlifting, but after reading around here I decided to take it up. It killed my lower back though! I wasn't sure if it was my form or the fact that I didn't have a belt on.
The problem is belts are 20 bucks... Is there a way to get around the lower back pain? Or is getting a belt a good investment?
I guess the good thing if I buy one is it looks cool.
