    Overall Strength Increase?

    I recently heard about a method of training where the person wears weighted gloves, socks, and other weighted garments, and continues their everyday regimend, like going to school/work, getting groceries, etc. It came to mind that this may increase overall strength in the body. I was wondering if this would be effective if combined with training at the gym, and would it have negative effects on the joints, or other parts of the body?

    Alot of fighters train with 16oz gloves, not 10oz gloves that you fight with. Thats kinda similiar yet not so extreme as weighted socks and stuff.
    I tried training with weights around my ankles but I didnt do it for very long because I just found that it made me swing my kicks more becuase of the extra weight.

    Also you would be surprised at how much harder you punch with an extra 1kg around your wrists. Im not so sure as its a good way of training though so I dont do it.

    You'd be better off with lifting weights. I imagine ankle/wrist weights and other style weights would be bad for your joints when used for long periods throughout the day.

    This is correct. For more evidence see the effect of being fat on your joints.
    You can't make people smarter. You can expose them to information, but your responsibility stops there.

    Having weights around your articulations for long hours is not a good idea at all... specially if you have muscular imbalances, or worse, if you are not in a good shape to begin with. Take ankle weights for example. If you don't have strong ankles, that **** will **** you up. However, if you are in good shape and with strong ankles already, a pair of weights may give a little bit of spice to skipping (provided you put ankle braces, just in case.)

    Or take those girly wrist weights for aerobics. Girls who will benefit the most out of them are those already in shape, and who can do the entire aerobic class an extra 2-3lbs on each wrist without straining themselves, as opposed to the ones who are not in good shape to begin with.


    weighted garments + good fitness == a little bit of icing on a good cake
    weighted garments + not so good fitness == ouch, frustration, injuries, more frustration and more ouch.

    Best thing is just to stick to a SERIOUS weightlifiting program (or any SERIOUS fitness program for that matter). Walking around with weights sounds more like one of those ab reduction infomercials IMO.

    New To Weight Training? Get the StrongLifts 5x5 program and Rippetoe's "Starting Strength, 2nd Ed". Wanna build muscle/gain weight? Check this article. My review on Tactical Nutrition here.

    The street argument is retarded. BJJ is so much overkill for the street that its ridiculous. Unless you're the idiot that picks a fight with the high school wrestling team, barring knife or gun play, the opponent shouldn't make it past double leg + ground and pound - Osiris

    weighted gloves? One pound seems to be good for me.

    Weighted vest? Hey, I did it for a winter. 40 pounds is a huge difference jumping rope, doing pullups, and pushups. I know they make the weighted vests heavier, too. So, I'm going to work my way back into one soon--but, I wouldn't wear it all day... I did that over the winter, and all my coworkers were cracking up at me.

    there has been success using weighted vests, ankle weights and such. If you train with them stick to low impact excersices the jumping rope thing I'd avoid. The vests are the best to wear since the weight is more evenly distributed. You do need to be in a good level of fitness or if you are losing weight you can add this faux weight to counter what you've lost to maintain what you are used to. If you just have to do some kind of impact work out with the weights do it on grass, sand or a rubber aggregate track. Definitely not on concrete or asphalt. If you want a good resistance for running invest in the little parachutes that you can get in specialty workout catalogs, it will increase your leg strength, sprinting speed, burst from the blocks and chicks will dig you since they will think you are a professional training for something. As Borat would say "VERY NICE, BIG SUCCESS!!!"
