As any athlete knows, the importance of weight training is a crucial part of a productive workout. In order to efficiently lose fat and gain lean muscle mass, a combination of cardio and strength training must be implemented. The main difference in cardio and strength training is the period of time in which calories are burned. While cardio burns calories while an individual is performing an exercise, weight training enables calories to be burned even after an individual has stopped working out. So why use a weight vest? What does weight vest research tell us? Imagine doing the same cardio exercises you would do in your daily routine with added weight. Say you add 10 pounds to your weight vest, you are essentially doing the workout of an individual 10 pounds heavier than you, increasing the intensity of your workout and the efficiency of your workout, burning more calories in a shorter amount of time. As calories are being burned and fat is being lost, lean muscle can begin to form. The increased intensity in the workout makes cardiovascular systems work harder, strengthening them and engaging the entire core. All of these changes that come as a result of combining cardio and weight training improves overall performance (speed, endurance, etc.)
