not sure if they are true either but they do seem plausable .. I will have to do some more research..

it would be a pain to have to take it on and off..

although some reviews used it for running but yes the extra weight could slow the pace down..

I don't have back issues.. I have issues in my wrists and left elbow so I thought it may help me increase strength training without putting extra pressure on my wrists.. but now You have given me food for thought.. so I need to research some more.

thanks for a different perspective

I totally disagree with the first poster for those of us in better shape. However, I understand older people with less mobility would have those issues.

For people in good shape and no disabilities or injuries, the weighted vest just makes a work out more challenging. For runners, it is comparable to doing uphill sprints - it just makes your run more difficult, so that on race day, you will be faster without the weighted vest.

To each their own though. Different strokes for different folks.

11:34.. I too would like to know what vest You use and is it adjustable.. can you post a link.. I am still considering it later I am thinking of using because with my wrists and elbow I can not lift weights.

do you think this would be a good option?
