The weighted vest is a wearable device that you can fit over your shoulders and is worn like a vest but with additional weights. This enables you to perform exercise routines with added resistance while keeping your hands and arms free to use for many different physical activities, sports, and training events.
With most weighted vests, you have the option to add or subtract weights to and from the vest. Some use metal plates, while others use sandbags that can fit into pockets or sleeves in the vest.
The main purpose of a weighted vest is to make your workout harder by adding weight or extra resistance. The advantage of using a weighted vest over most other fitness equipment is that it can be worn on the body, like an extra skin while keeping your legs, arms, and hands-free to perform your usual fitness activity.
