Weighted Equipment

  • Hey I was wondering if anyone uses weighted gear, like ankle weights, weighted shorts, or a weighted vest.  I'm 18 an trying to put on some muscle, so I've been looking into getting a weighted training vest.  It'll help with my cardio, plus I can take it wherever I go and do some basic exercises (push ups, curl ups, chin ups, etc.) if I can't make it to the gym.  Does anyone else use this kind of gear?  Thanks.

  • Right - I'm thinking of doing the same thing.  ala recommendation from Arnold - yes, the Schwarzenegger method.  Suggest you keep the weight light at first...
