    go running.. that's what it's made for. a barbell press/deadlift will give better results than the push ups and squats.. especially as the vest is only about 19% of your bodyweight

    "go running.. that's what it's made for"

    Running is already joint intensive, adding weight will excerbate this. Yes their are fat people that run, and yes some don't have joint problems, however, the overwhelming number of overweight people who run regularly have knee problems.

    I'd keep any jogging/running you do unweighted. I think it could be useful for bodyweight complexes for conditioning, but it will not assist in max strength in any way.

    These. Pick any bodyweight exercise since the vest increases your body weight.

    i would use one for body weight exersizes. ever since i saw a gymrat wearing a fly fishing vest with the million and one pockets that he had filled with baggies full of lead shot, i thought they were a pretty cool idea.
