I’m a physical therapist and want to share what I’ve learned about using weighted vests for strength training to get better at hiking and backpacking.
Before My First Time Using a Weighted Vest, I Had SO MANY Questions
Yes, I was so excited to workout outdoor without the gym.
But since I had never been used one before, I was also OVERWHELMED.
What I was worried about:
- HOW to pick the right vest
- MISSING OUT on some good training at gym
- being UNORGANIZED & training incorrectly
- training MISHAPS that might make me get hurt
- getting OVERWHELMED and not knowing what to do
Through my personal experience with multiple types of wearable resistance, I’ve prepared multiple articles, training plans and buying guides to answer the most common questions that hikers have when utilizing a weighted vest for training.
