PostSubject: About Frank Zane   Fri Dec 11, 2009 7:26 pm

As I've mentioned elsewhere on this forum, Frank Zane is one of my heroes since he and I are about the same age--two days older than the evolution of dirt.

I was trying to remember the occasion when Zane suffered a significant back injury and devoted part of his recovery time to inventing a weight-loaded belt-sort-of-thing that permitted him to continue training his legs while recovering from the back injury.

I tried to look this up on another bodybuilding forum and found only a flock of Photo-Shopped snapshots of Zane as he might have looked if he'd been anorexic.

Phooey...the object was to discuss training through injuries...

I've got a super squat belt made by ironmind (couldn't find a decent video)...before I got my safety squat bar (you don't need hands for that- a great piece of kit!). It was when I had my second rotator cuff 'incident' & was moaning so much my partner bought one for me just to shut me up (it worked!)

Safety squat bar in action


Have to find a decent supersquat hip belt in action sometime?

The URL below links to a video of a guy doing Belt-Squats ( 20 reps with 500 lbs. of iron! ).

That's the belt I mean! I tend to use an EZ bar which the discs on that slung somewhat higher, so you don't need to stand on boxes, but I've found you do need to hold on, like this guy, to get the best results - I've never hit near that kind of set 500 x 20 is awesome!

Found a video that looks more like I do it
