    Oh, and I want to use bar/dumb bell plates for the weight.

    Any sugestions?

    Try using a military vest. Like the ones you can get from Blackhawk with magazine pockets. Then use seasoft scuba weights in these pockets. This will be the best weight vest for you. Its what I use and it works great. and you can put more weight in it as you get stronger.

    I was going to suggest that. I still have my Black Hawk, and it would certainly work well for that. However, I'm pretty sure that it would be expensive to buy as a civilian. It would probably be cheaper to buy an actual weighted vest from Ringside.

    I doubt if Vietnam surplus is that expensive these days. He doesn't need hi-tech, he just needs big, evenly distributed pockets. I bet if he looked around on the web for soviet stuff he could get a real bargain.

    But Jekyll, if you're going to start working out wearing military surplus gear, you've got to promise not to go weird on us, you know ?

    How weird is too weird?
    Given that Shawn's been know to turn up in purple 3/4 length combats and a string vest shouting, "Bring on the motherfucking ruckus! We're the wudang clan!", what would it take for me to get noticed?

    Cheers for the advise guys.
    At the moment a superglue and duct tape reinforced bag seems to be holding up, but I'm sure I'll be wandering down to an army surplus store in the near future.

    You won't find any Vietnam era blackhawks or similar vests. They wore the basic duece gear then.

    As for the vietnam era "flak jackets" that you're talking about, you cannot add weight to them. In fact these are the same basic flak jackets still issued up to a few yerars ago. They were meant to protect from "'flak" or fragmentation, not most rifle rounds. My first flak jacket had no pockets in which to slide the ceramic plates you're talking about. My most recent one, the newer Interceptors do, and I agree they would be great for a weighted vest, but they are extremely expensive and an actual weighted exercise vest would work better. The interceptors restrict overhead motion of your arms slightly.

    Well, if you start doing your chinups with a bayonet clenched between your teeth 'just to force me to breathe through my nose, man. You know, to develop my Chi', then that would be a bit too weird.

    You see, I'm not sure if you're joking or not.

    1) From a standing position, squat down and put your hands on the ground.
    2) Bounce back into a push-up position.
    3) Bounce back to the same squatting position you were just in.
    4) Stand up. That's one.
