The positive effects of using weight vests to improve running performance and amplify endurance cannot be underestimated. The use of these vests has a wide range of benefits ranging from physiological to psychological.
A study in the Journal of Applied Physiology notes that weight vests are particularly beneficial to individuals who have had a steady level performance than their less steady counterparts. One of the notable positive effects of the vests is the increase in the strength of the legs. The study – that took place for ten (10) weeks – exemplified this proposition because its results showed that the leg strength of the participants increases by 30%.
The results of a study published in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport showed that the peek running speed of individuals who wore weight vests improved by 2.9%. Besides, the moderate increment in leg stiffness was recorded with a running economy of 6%. Further, though by relatively low margin (categorized as small to moderate), the cardiorespiratory efficiency of individuals who participated in the study was improved.
Indeed, the role of weight vests in improving the performance of its users is too significant to be belittled. Precisely, its most notable positive effects include leg strength increment, improved short-term endurance cycling and running, leg stiffness improved running economy and cardiorespiratory efficiency. By all aspects, weight vests are beneficial in strength training.
