    Do as many different crawls, pullups, pushups, dips, and squats that you can think of-- but don't run long distances in it. DO YOUR FORMS in it.

    I occasionally work the heavy bag or shadow box while wearing mine. JUst don't use so much weight that it changes your form.

    Do you find the vest limits the spine's range of motion?

    Regarding range of motion, not all weight vests are designed alike. I bought mine from Ironwear, the whole vest has plenty of give to it. The vest itself is neoprene and the individual weights are a flexible polymer. No metal, no stiff fabrics. I haven't found much physical restriction from the design of the actual vest, instead it was more a factor of did I want to move a certain way with the weight I was carrying. The more weight I used, the more conservative I am with body mechanics and ranges of motion.

    I wear it for long periods of time, including wearing it to work. I haven't found that it interferes with my work. I can wrangle equipment in and out of the lab or rewire my gear without issue. Its been a good reminder to keep better posture and use better lifting habits.
