    I used a weighted vest for 4 months (40 pounds), and I wore it to and from work (walked about 3 miles a day in it). I used to jump rope in it and all sorts of stuff.

    I'd recommend you just wear it for bodyweight exercises. Anything that requires you to have coordination, the vest fucks with it.

    It seriously is like being fat, but only for some of the day. It got to the point where I was better at certain things with the vest on than without it. It messed with my balance most of all. I would always over shoot running up stairs and stuff when I took the vest off.


    I will still use it for bodyweight squats and pushups/pullups and dips, but that's about it.

    Note, you can make your own weighted backpack by putting sand in ziploc bags. Add as many or as few bags as you want, and get going.

    That being said, I wouldn't wear a weighted vest unless I was so strong in an exercise that my own bodyweight wasn't sufficient for an advanced variation.

    I wear weighted vests. One on each hand while I play Time Crisis 3. I have a problem now. When I shoot without them, I always miss the noun(person, place, or thing) and hit the sky. It's OK though, I've already sent my resume into the Los Angeles Police Department, I was told I would fit in there. I'm hoping for an answer soon.

    You realize that as soon as you add weight, it's not "bodyweight" anymore...

    I can see pushups and pullups and even situps being used with a vest since it'd be an easy way to add weight. But a vest for squats? Hell no. get a bar and put some real weight on it.

    A vest for all bodyweight exercises I think is fine. Yes, once you add weight, it's no longer "bodyweight" but it's close enough that you can still do the same exercises you would be able to do without the vest. It's weight added in such a way that you aren't confined to the gym and changing up weights and stations depending on what you are working.

    So, if someone wants to do burpees with a vest on, that's possible. Pushups, pullups and all other "bodyweight exercises" should be fine for the weighted vest. If one feels that a bar would be better, then why not just use the bar for presses and other things INSTEAD of bodyweight exercises?

    Hey, either way I can see a person making gains. So it doesn't really make a difference to me.

    I think it's much along the lines of why you don't practice chest passes with a medicine ball in or to get ready for a basketball game. It throws you off.
