    Weighted vests

    Anyone ever used or bought one of these?? I'm planning to get one for everyday use, something that's light enough maybe 10-20 max that I can wear under my clothes and would not be noticeable.

    So if anyone know any pros and cons, any tips or brands they recommend I would love it.

    Re: Weighted vests

    It all depends on several factors, how much do you weigh currently Legend? 10-20 pounds is nothing if you are a larger guy. To get any benefit from it you'd need to wear it all the time, so you have to take into consideration the weather in your area. If its hot most of the time, the vest will sweat you to death, as most are of dark color.

    I used ankle and wrist weights to help lose weight, they also help in strengthening the legs. (I never got larger than 5 pound wrist weights just for the fact that if you walk with them they slide off of you, so the effect on the arms was less great.)

    Gold's Gym has a very nice 40 pound vest. I suggest combining ankle with the vest though.

    About 160-170, and I'm all the way on the west coast so the weather is usually on the cool side. I'm thinking more of the vest because my leg strength is fine, I just want something so when I ball I take it off and I got the extra burst from the instant weight lost from the vest. and if it can train the back too it be great, since I do some golfing.

    First of all we would need a picture of you playing golf. To errr, evaluate how much the weight jacket would benefit you.
