WHAT IS THE WEIGHTED
A Weighted Vest is simply a vest worn over your torso to
provide varying amount of resistance. The general purpose of a Weighted Vest is
to add extra weight for body-weight exercises; their high versatility allows
for a broad range of exercises, such as walking, jogging, rope-jumping, bike
riding, core strengthening, and weight training.
There are broadly 2 type of Weights: Adjustable Weighted
Vest aand Fixed Weighted Vest. The Adjustable Weighted Vest allows you to add
more weight as strength improves for greater workout intensity. However, a
Fixed Weighted Vest provides for a more gentle and comfortable fit.

How it works
A weight vest workout can be used for a variety of training
approaches to improve your physical performance for a wider set of muscle
groups. The added weight of these vests create additional resistance during
muscle building, body-weight exercises, and heart-pumping cardio activities –
making you expend more energy to achieve your fitness goals.
When adding a weight vest to your fitness program, start out
light then gradually work your way up to a heavier weighted vest over a few
months. Going too heavy, too soon can put excessive stress on your joints and
Benefits from wearing weight vests are seen in both strength
training and aerobic activities. Carrying extra weight during exercise requires
added strength and oxygen, all the while sapping your energy stores. With any
exercise the more weight used, the more the muscles have to adapt to the higher
weight-which builds strength and muscular endurance.
When running with a Weighted Vest, the cardiovascular system
has to go into overdrive as a result of the added resistance, thus
strengthening the lungs and an athlete’s ability to consume oxygen.
