Does using a belt really weaken the core?

So, I've basically got a weak core causing back pain, been working on strengthening it up with planks.

Squat assistance exercises

So I've realized I'm reaching the point to where my back is stronger than my legs. Here is what I mean by that : unracking weight and maintaining form while avoiding being folded over is simple as most weight actually doesn't feel heavy on me. So I'm needing to strengthen my quads but I squat low...

Designing a program layout
