Wearing a belt keeps you from properly engaging your core muscles to control the load. You just "push" against the belt to stabilize your core. No bueno.

That and the gym was cold because the windows were open and I only did 1 warm-up set. I don't think cold tight muscles helped at all.

rather be a pussy and be on the mountain shredding than laid up
I used to lift heavy too but after straining my back several times i went alternate route. i do routines that push my endurance for wakeboarding, snowboarding etc. I ride 10 days straight first call last chair while my friends barely put in 3 hours each day on a 4 day trip
