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.
