The Best Running Weight Vests

Weight vests are used to develop overall body strength. The weighted vests are designed to fit snuggly on your body and cause your body to get used to carrying more weight while performing certain tasks. Because your body grows accustomed to functioning with the added weight, you will feel lighter and much more explosive once you remove the vest. Different makes and models of weighted vests can take your running activity to the next level.
