You want to push out on your belt. I don’t know where people get ‘sucking in,’ you know, sucking your stomach in is retarded. You have to push out on your belt. The more pressure you have on the abdominals, the less pressure on the spinal cord. I was in a thesis back in the early ’80s that proved that with a wire – one to my stomach and one to my thoracic area. And we proved what a weightlifting belt does. Everyone theorized what it did, but no one knew.” – Louie Simmons
