Weighted Vest Tricks Your Body into Burning MORE Calories

There are so many resources on the internet for people looking to increase their level of health.  I found an excellent resource called "Be Active Your Way: A Guide for Adults."  It is chock-full of useful tips whether you are just getting started, working to make physical activity a bigger part of your life, or ready to up your duration and / or intensity.

The thing I love about reading guides and articles like this is that it is so easy to incorporate Hyper Wear products into each of these suggestions.  The simplest thing you can do to amp up your workout routine is to add a Hyper Vest PRO weighted vest.  Not only does it make every activity a weight-bearing activity (which builds bone density and muscle mass), it helps you burn extra calories with every move.  You see, it tricks your body into burning more calories!

How does it do this?  Calculate how many calories you burn in one hour of high-impact aerobics.  Let's say you weigh 150 pounds; you can burn 477 calories in that hour.  But if you weighed 160, you would burn 508 calories in that hour.  That's about 30 more calories per hour.  May not sound like much, but if you burn that extra 30 calories per day, you can lose a pound of fat (3500 cal = 1 lb fat) in just 116 days, simply by adding a 10 lb weight vest to the equation.  That's 3 pounds lost per year.  That's pretty good for not really increasing intensity or duration!

So keep in mind the ways you can get more bang for your workout buck and consider using your Hyper Vest PRO weighted vest to torch extra calories, no sweat!
