  • Why and when should I start using a weighted vest?

    Once you can do movement work without the support and maintain proper technique, you can add a weighted vest. This can help you build strength, improve your endurance, and increase your fitness. Adding a weighted vest is an excellent tool/investment because if you can train with a weighted vest, you can increase the resistance on your body and challenge your muscles in new ways.

    It’s important to note that weighted vests should only be used once you have built a solid foundation of movement and strength. If you have any injuries or limitations, consult with us at G8way Max before using a weighted vest.

    Additionally, it’s essential to start with a lightweight vest first and gradually increase it over time. Beginning with a too-severe weight could cause a consequence and put unnecessary strain on your joints or increase your risk of injury.

    In terms of when to use a weighted vest, it can be incorporated into various workouts, including bodyweight exercises, running, and plyometrics. However, listening to your body and not overdoing it with the added weight is essential. Make sure to give your body adequate rest and recovery time between workouts.

    In conclusion, a weighted vest can be valuable for increasing resistance and challenging your muscles during workouts. However, it should only be used once you have built a solid foundation of movement and strength and should be started with a light weight and gradually increased over time. We recommend a weighted vest for all our performance athletes!
