What Kind Of Weight Belt Is Best For Crossfit?

I am a 45 year old, running 5K crossfitter. I’m 190lbs and have been wearing a 20lb belt for the past 1 1/2 years. Recently, I bought a Brookstone Elite Belt because it’s “portable” meaning you can take it with you everywhere due to its foldability. Even though this belt is very lightweight – only 2 lbs – and so far seems durable, after using it for about 10 minutes, I feel like my energy has been sapped and my muscles are tight. Also, someone mentioned the pain of having an “over-engineered piece of metal” around your midsection which the Brookstone Belt appears to be. It also forces me to contort into weird positions that aren’t natural at all (i just learned how bad i look in rowing position…). So does anyone know if this contraption is well made? Does it actually work? What type of belt would be best for Crossfit?

The Benefits of Building Muscle at Any Age If you want to live longer, the best way to do this is by building muscle. The more muscle tissue in your body—both skeletal and cardiac—the better off you are overall when it comes to living longer. Research shows that when people improve their circulation health by increasing muscular strength, there is an increase in HDL cholesterol particle number, which doesn’t just stop there! There are even greater improvements in stroke volume!20 If you have just had a heart attack or stent placed inside your heart during open-heart surgery, consider using one of the many sports fitness programs available today at Bikram Yoga Medicine Retreat Centers in order to promote circulation patterns in your circulatory system instead of taking prescription medications. Your doctor could start prescribing exercise after talking to you about safety precautions for exercise during LAD st
