7 Benefits Of Wearing a Weighed Vest

Benefit 1: Build Muscle By Progressive Overload

The more load your body needs to support. The more your body will need to adapt to this new load by adding slabs of new muscle! Slowly build up by adding weight each workout.

Benefit 2: Build Your Traps and Core Passively

The stretch and load on the traps will cause them to grow even from just wearing them on a walk. The traps main function is stabilization and the weight vest is the perfect way to challenge your traps! The same can be said with the core! Your core will tire out much faster from having to control and balance the added weight!

 

Nothing will spike your heart rate quicker than wearing a weighted vest and climbing on a treadmill or stairmaster.

Benefit 5: Burn More Calories

Whether you are doing a workout, going for a walk or just doing chores at home, when you wear a weight vest you are doing more work. This will burn more calories and help you burn fat.

Benefit 6: Reduces Risk of Injury

When you are performing dips, pull-ups or pushups with the weight vest your arms are fixed to the floor or bar. When performing the squat, your legs are fixed to the ground. These movements are called closed-chain movements.

Closed-chain movements are considered much safer than open-chain movements such as in barbell and dumbbell training where the arms are moving. Furthermore, closed-chain movements are much more natural and will translate better to sports!

Benefit 7: Utilize Circuit Training to make Workouts more Fun

Pull-ups, Squat jumps, planks, pushups and back to Pull-ups! The versatility of the weight vest allows you to quickly switch exercises to make it very good for circuit training to get a full body workout in a fun way while also saving your tons of time!
