Based on Greg's advice, I thought I would try wearing a belt for C&J. I've felt a little wobbly through my core during the heavy jerks. I thought a belt might help add some stability. The problem was as I was cleaning the weight the bar caught on my belt buckle.
Is there a special type of belt for O'Lifting? Mine apparently is to thick. It's about 4" wide w/ 1/4" thick leather all the way around.
Or am I supposed to turn my belt around backwards so buckle doesn't catch in front?
