Rappd Neoprene Training Belts are designed with functionality and support as key attributes. Our Training belt is made with 9mm Heavy duty Neoprene and is the thickest Velcro belt on the market.

  • High grade nylon webbing
  • Heavy Duty Hook and Loop Velcro
  • Stainless Steel roller buckle
  • 9mm thick Neoprene
  • Contoured design for maximum core support and comfort

    The benefits of using a weightlifting belt is to increase intra-abdominal pressure or pressure in your abdomen during heavy or strenuous lifting.

    This pressure creates a rigid core, stabilizing your spine and helping increase your maximum power. This pressure also keeps your spine from collapsing under heavy weight. You can create your own intra-abdominal pressure by breathing in, holding your breath and pushing out with your stomach muscles, a move called the Valsalva manoeuvre.

    The weight belt gives your stomach something to push against, increasing your intra-abdominal pressure, which minimises back injuries and hernias.

    Preventing Back Injuries from Weight lifting

    As a general rule, before one begins or makes changes to a weightlifting routine, it is important to know the condition of one’s back and keep weight amounts within personal limits. If anyone has experienced back pain, it is advisable to first get an evaluation from a primary care physician, chiropractor, physiatrist, or other spine specialist before beginning lifting weights.

    Specific guidelines that are useful in helping to prevent back injury include:

    • Use less weight, but do more repetitions when lifting weights
    • Consider using a training machine rather than free weights for certain weightlifting exercises. This point is important to discuss with both a spine specialist and trainer, understanding there is a trade-off
      • A machine may reduce stress on the back (for example, quadriceps done sitting at a machine versus squats holding weights) and can generally be used by someone with little or no supervision
      • But free weights add proprioception (self-regulation of posture and movement in response to the free weights) that a machine does not. Proprioception is an added benefit in helping enhance the body’s balance and stability.
