Weight Vest benefits in exercise

There are a number of benefits to using a weight vest. We've added a few of the best benefits below.

Increased strength and stamina: Adding a weight vest to your cardio workout or weightlifting is a great way to increase calorie burn and sap your energy stores and oxygen supply. This makes your body adjust to the increased weight. The University of Texas found that using weigthed vests with plyometric exercise substancially improved the perfromance of the athlete over only plyometric exercise alone.

Takes you off the fitness plateau:  The human body is very adaptable, which means that after a while of doing the same things, the body stops working as hard for the same activities. You stop progressing and stop using as many calories. The metabolism doesn't fire up the same. This is the plateau so often found in exercise. Add one of our weight vests to your exercise routine or weightlifting and you will lift off the plateau. Your body will work harder and you'll see results again. Plus, the variety in the routine is sure to fire your imagination and keep you from getting bored with the workout.

Heart Health: wearing a weighted vest while running, rowing, or other activities revs up the body. The cardiovascular system increases blood and oxygen supply to the cells of the body. Weighted exercise improves the body's VO2 levels much more than regular exercise. This improves the heart's health and aids in the wellness of the entire cardiovascular system.

Skeletal Strength: Resistance increases bone mass and decreases the risk of osteoporosis. Weighted vests add an easy and convenient method of increasing weight exercise to everyday movement. By increasing the load on your skeletal system, your body compensates by laying down new, stronger bone across the existing structure. This greatly reduces the risks of bone breaks and osteoporosis when aging.
