Training Tip - Belt Squat

If you are limited by an upper body injury or back/front squats just don’t feel quite right the BELT SQUAT is the perfect substitution to throw into your program.

This movement will allow you to place some substantial load directly onto your hips removing the requirement for the upper body to be under tension.

Placing the load onto your hips will also allow you to not only minimise any spinal compression, but it is also great for athletes who may experience lower back pain as it removes the load completely from the back.
