Is a support belt needed when weight vest training?
There is no credible evidence that a support belt is needed or beneficial. NIOSH says claims that back or support belt designs prevent back injury by supporting the spine is inconclusive.
It's great to see so many different weight vest models, what is the main reason?
Just like shoes, different designs are specifically made for running, basketball, track, walking, Crossfit training, etc. our weight vests come in different weights from 15 to 150 lbs. and our features help you target your fitness goals much better than one vest design. For example, a basketball player or rock climber would be better off using our basket ball vests, in either the 30 lb. model or the 40 lb. model; a body-builder would receive better results using the 75 lb., 100 lb. or 150 lb. long vest. Also, women prefer the women’s designs over the basic man’s design in many cases. You would never use one shoe for all your fitness activities, same goes for your weight vest, try to purchase a weight vest closest to your personal needs for maximum benefits.For overhead arm movements like pull-ups or overhead squats, a vest with narrow shoulders would be best. If you are walking, running and not doing many overhead arm movements a wide shoulder would best fit that activity. If you plan to work your core muscles and mid section you would be best served with a short vest where the weight is located higher on the torso. A long weight vest is great for walking and running, and can be beneficial for general workouts too.
Should I start with the full amount of weight?
We recommend you first of all contact your doctor before starting a weight vest training program. With that, you should not start with the full amount of weight. Generally we recommend you start light and work up. The body needs time to adjust to the weight. Never start with a greater weight than you are accustomed to using. Your trainer and medical professional can determine the fitness level you are at now and can safely recommend a starting weight.
Can I wash my weight vest?
Yes. Hand wash with mild detergent and rinse with wet/damp cloth or sponge. Then towel and air dry. These vests are made with 1000-D Cordura Nylon and have a urethane coating to inhibit moisture transfer, so they are to be treated as you would a high-quality backpack. The best way to keep it smelling fresh is to spray it with Febreze antimicrobial spray, available at most grocery stores, after use.
If I lose a part for my weight vest can I get it replaced?
Yes, all parts are replaceable. Check under the accessories tab for all our parts available for replacements.
Can the weights come out?
Yes, the weights are 2.5 lbs. each and are all removable. If you lose a weight you can order a new weight under the accessories tab.
Do these weight vests come in different sizes?
They are one size fits all generally, for all adults. If you are a smaller person, under 5′ 4″ or a youth, you might prefer our Compact 30 lb. weight vest. Sold under the women’s weight vest tab.
