Weight vest training is on the rise. The concept is simple: increasing your body weight 10-15% will help you reach whatever goals you’ve set for yourself quicker. Weight vest training gives you the ability to see increases in strength, performance, and endurance as well as burn more calories and that is just the beginning of the list. There are many ways to incorporate a weighted vest into your workouts.
Combining weights with compression fabrics is an innovation that was a break through in weight vests. Designed based on a utility patent for holding weights tight to the body during any exercise while still allowing the chest to expand for breathing, Hyperwear’s Hyper Vest PRO originated the weighted compression gear category.
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.)
