What Is a Weighted Vest?
A weighted vest is simply a vest that is filled with sand, small steel bars, or other weighted objects. The general purpose of a weighted vest is to add extra weight and challenge to body-weight exercises, walking, stair climbs, distance running or speed sprints, riding a bike, agility drills, rope-jumping, core strengthening, or weight training.
Weighted vests are a fantastic workout addition where carrying a little extra baggage can actually improve your physical performance for a wider set of muscle groups. Research has shown that using this type of extra load during sprinting or speedwork requires your lower-body muscles to generate more force against the ground, and can lead to improvements in strength, power, and acceleration during running, as well as increased strength and efficiency during speed, power, and agility drills.
By simply doing your daily activities with a bit of extra weight you can significantly increase your calorie burn and can also increase intensity of an activity or exercise that would normally be easy and even help with bone density by loading the skeletal system.
Suitable for Beginners and Advanced Athletes
The weight adjustability of Orbit’s camouflaged 20kg weighted vest creates additional resistance during muscle building, body-weight exercises, and heart-pumping cardio activities – making you expend more energy to achieve your fitness goals.
