Why you need it The Weighted Vest maximizes comfort and mobility during workouts as it allows you to use weights safely without having to hold onto a free weight or dumbbell or barbell – you are the weight. This makes exercises more dynamic as you can move freely. It also makes your usual bodyweight workout harder, as the COREFX Weighted Vest adds resistance to the movements. How it helps The COREFX Weighted Vest helps you improve your cardio conditioning and strength, giving you more power, speed, and agility in everything you do! As you train, your heart and lungs work harder, improving your conditioning. The Weighted Vest also engages your core, which helps to improve your overall stability as well as encourages a stronger musculoskeletal system. The greater total-body load from the weighted vest allows for your bones to become stronger and denser to handle the added weight. How to use it First, make sure the weight vest fits correctly. Adjust the Velcro straps until it is comfortable and snug. You don’t want the training vest too loose, so it moves around when you’re doing burpees or jumping jacks. However, you also don’t want it too tight. Change the number and location of the individual metal weight packs on the vest until you have a lighter overall weight, we recommend starting with 10 pounds. It may not sound like much, but your muscles will definitely feel it. Then choose a bodyweight circuit that you can already do comfortably - try to complete your typical reps. Add the extra individual weight packs to your vest slowly, as the circuit becomes less challenging. What you can do with it You can incorporate the Weighted Vest to any workout to add extra weight for your body-weight exercises, distance running, speed, walking, quick drills and agility.
