Does anyone here use weighted clothing during work outs? Are they effective?

I haven't used weighted clothing, but I have used ankle weights. I noticed a little bit of a difference. Helps you tone while doing cardio. I wouldn't replace a workout with weights with weighted clothing or ankle weights though. I did feel faster though. I felt like I had gained speed.

I use weighted gloves during my workout, just 1lb per hand, but it makes a pretty big difference. Just try them while jumping rope for cardio and you'll be suprised!

Funny thing, I just posted ablog about this very topic. I must admit that I felt a dramatically positive improvement in speed and power. I particularly got a lot out of speed bag drills and grappling drills with extremity weights as a supplement.

Weights on ankles can RUIN knees.

PLEASE be careful!


One pound weights on wrists is A+

proven to be the BEST weight a looooong time ago and well-tested.


Weighted vests are great
but hot muscles don't work well.

So, add ice packs

flora's advice is very sound here. Weighted gear is for training, not for patrolling.

Too much weight on the ankles is how I ruined my knee. Don't make the same mistake.

I train with ankle weights too, They helped me build up my speed in kicking I 've been doing it for years... Although like Flora V said be careful! If you put too much weight on your ankle you can injure yourself!!! Always use caution and always stretch before doing any training!

I often wear 27lbs of chainmail armor while training or just walking around, but never on patrol. I once heard a story of hercules and how he gained his stregth of legend. He picked a young calf and bore him on his back every day, all day. As the calf grew to become a bull so did Hercules' strength and muscles. This story was sort of my inspiration for wearing the armor and adding more weight when I had grow strong enough to move unimpeded by itKs weight. I noticed grow in speed and strenght as well as jumping ability (which in the art I practice is important). I continue to train with weight but am looking for a weight vest, my sweat began to rust the armor, and will continue to do so for as long as I am able to train.

i have a weighted vest but its cheap and when I move it bounces and jerks down on my shoulders. after i have my outfit finally done i will move onto training gear and i plan on looking into the good weighted vests that have multiple tightening points to secure to you from all sides.
