Weight vest considerations

You should be physically able to perform exercises before adding a weight vest to your training. Performing movements with added bodyweight isn’t helpful if you haven’t mastered proper form.

Whatever the prescribed weight, if you’re newer to wearing weight vests start with lighter weights and get your body used to training with the added resistance first.

Weight vests are a great addition to your workouts and can revolutionise your training.
