THE UPCOMING JULY 13, 2018 SUMMER SCIENCE FRIDAY POST will discuss the wearing of weighted vests. If you’re interested in this equipment, below are a few vests that seem to have received good reviews from those who purchased them online through Amazon.com. Five of the vests were featured in a very helpful bestreviews.com article.
I have worn the Tone Fitness Weighted Vest for many years, although mine is a 10-pound vest. I only use it walking and no longer wear it while performing strength training exercises like push-ups, step-ups, and lunges, to protect my joints from the extra load. I haven’t experienced any problems with this vest. However, after checking out other vests and reading the customer reviews, I’m interested in trialing other brands.
Online there were many brands and weight levels from which to select; some brands offered models in a range of adjustable weights. Lower weight vests tended to use sand for fill; higher weight vests used iron inserts.
