The only thing to watch with belt squats is to not get the belt too high up. Be sure it rests around your hips. I screwed up once and got it up a but high. It really destroyed my lower back.wow, thank you for taking the time to post this. I really appreciate it.
the seated curls, Bulgarians, belt squats, and leg extensions have been my go to as of late. I've basically been using the belt squats as my main "compound" movement. for some reason the tension from the belt when I get up to a decent weight literally bruises up my hips. I've resorted to folding up old knee sleeves and putting them around my hips. If it wasn't for the belt discomfort I could destroy this movement. Ill keep playing with it and see.
I'm thinking about adding in the pendulum squat this week and see how it goes. I also have a paramount one and Randy Coyle swing squat.
As for Back I dropped everything that had me bent over rowing with out chest support. I hope one day I can get rack pulls back in the mix though
