I recommend the Hyperwear weighted vest for the majority my clients who would benefit from using a weighted vest. Hyperwear offers two models. Here is my review the Hypervest Pro and my review of the Hypervest Elite.
In the sections that follow, I cover some weighted vest basics, specifically how to choose and use a weighted vest.
How to Choose a Weighted Vest
In this video, I discuss how to choose a weighted vest, how to use the vest, as well as when to use a weighted vest. This video is especially appropriate for people concerned about their bone health and osteoporosis. I cover the following topics:
Introduction to weighted vests
Attributes of a good weighted vest
How you should use a weighted vest
How to safely add a weighted vest to your exercise routine
I have looked at and tested many weighted vests over the years. Most weighted vests are “one-size-fits-all”. That does not work well with this type of equipment. The fit has to be good and the weight distribution even.
HyperWear states that its weight vests have an exceptional fit because they are available in multiple sizes. HyperWear will exchange vests for sizing issues and,they inform us, will always take care of their customers.
