HOW IT WORKS
Your body is acclimated to your weight, and burns calories based on weight, exercise, duration and intensity. As you add more weight to your body, more muscles are recruited to support the function of moving the added weight. Consequently, more calories are burned to support the increased muscle action. A properly weighted vest can intensify any activity or exercise. By increasing your metabolic rate and causing you to burn more calories in the same amount of time as your usual workout, the Strength Weight Vest can double your results, making any workout much more effective.
Resistance is adjusted by adding or removing half-pound weight bars as needed, thereby making the Strength Weight Vest and Shorts easy to incorporate into speed and plyometric progressions, agility drills, cardiovasular conditioning, and body weight exercises. Another outstanding benefit of the Strength Weight Vest is that Vest and shorts can be used with swimmers aquatic workouts.
