Benefits of Weight Vest Training
Here at Hyperwear, we love our products and want everyone to use them, enjoy them and maintain healthy lifestyles with them! Today, we want to take a moment to relay to you the benefits of a weight vest and how functional and effective the Hyper Vest PRO is. Sure, we could go on with great adjectives to describe why you should train with our vest, but we thought it’d be a better idea to let some testimonials and research do the talking.
An article on Livestrong.com, “Benefits of a Weight Vest,” by Andy Chasse discusses how and why weight vests are so effective, and provides some research to back it up. For example, a study conducted at Texas Tech University consisting of two groups of athletes, one training with and one training without a weight vest, revealed that after six weeks both groups improved in various tactical areas, but the one training with the vest improved substantially more.
Weight vests are a great tool to amp up workouts and challenge muscles so they don’t get used to repetitive movements. When you’re pressed for time and can’t come up with new exercises to keep the body guessing, just throw on a vest.
“This unconventional exercise method allows us to throw our systems off whenever necessary,” says Chasse.
Still not convinced? Well then consider the findings of another study in Chasse’s article—a study published in the “European Journal of Applied Physiology” found that of 12 distance athletes, the group running with a weight vest “emerged victorious with improvements in both their VO2 max (a measure of the body’s ability to consume oxygen) and lactate threshold (the exercise intensity at which lactate begins to accumulate in the blood), two crucial factors affecting endurance exercise.”
US Olympic Decathlete, Trey Hardee trains with the Hyper Vest PRO and just took home silver in the 2012 Olympics. In a testimonial to Hyperwear, Hardee had the following to say about the Hyper Vest PRO.
“I have never seen or used a weight vest like the Hyper Vest PRO. It stays tight, comfortable and cool on my body enabling me to increase my bodyweight while training. It makes adding resistance to my workouts effortless and I would recommend it to any track and field athlete who are looking to take the next step” – Trey Hardee
