Cardio Training in a Weight Vest
Incorporating a Weight Vest into Your Cardio Training Program
Cardio. Whether you like it or not if you're any type of athlete, your cardiovascular conditioning is going to come into play. And why shouldn't it? Your cardiovascular system serves many functions including delivering oxygen to your muscles and blood, cooling the body and delivers fuel. Quite simply cardio cannot be ignored. Whether you're a cardio fiend or you're doing it just because you realize its importance to everything you do, a Resistance Wear weight vest can help you get the results you're looking for.
When we're talking about cardio, we're talking heart rate, blood pressure and blood flow. Average resting heart rate for a healthy adult is between 60 and 80 beats per minute. In sedentary (IE, not moving or exercising) adults that number can reach as high as 100 beats per minute. This translates directly into your heart working harder. Elite athletes (who ironically do a ton of cardio) can have a resting heart rate as low as 30 to 40 beats per minute.
Many people entering into a cardio routine use it as a way to burn calories and lose weight. And it sure will do that! But the benefits of a cardio training program don't end with fat loss. You'll get improved heart health, increase metabolism, a better hormonal profile, quicker recovery and even will be at less risk of diseases like diabetes! With so many benefits, the question isn't should you be doing cardio, the question is why AREN'T you doing cardio?
Additional benefits of cardio training using a Resistance Wear weight vest include:
- A safe, but effective training approach. The Resistance Wear vest allows you to continue to perform your functional body movement. No injuries during training!
- Greater efficiency of functional movement. Get your workout done FAST.
- Muscle confusion. Keep doing your normal routine and super-charge it with the vest. The physics of any exercise change when you add weight.
