Weighted vest for running?

#1
I am hoping to join the Infantry, I was considering buying a 20 kg weighted vest ive seen for a 6 mile and 3 mile run i do each week.

I want to build stamina and get my body used to carrying extra weight for training.

I s this something anyone has any experience at and would you recomend it, or is it inviting injury?

Don't bother. Just work on your running and general cardio and ensure you can do at least 75 press ups and sit ups with two minutes for each exercise and you'll comfortably enjoy PT.

Waste of money. If you really insist on running with weight, use a daysack full of useful stuff, like food and water. I'd drop the idea altogether, frankly. Work on your speed and stamina, the Army will give you plenty of experience in carrying useless, heavy shit around.

I agree. Do your running training without weight. If you want to prepare for tabbing with weight carry something useful and go walking in boots. Why buy a useless bit of heavy kit?
 
#5
Agreed, every piece of advice I have ever been given is let the Army teach you to walk with weight ect., just stick to general cardio work and press-ups, as already mentioned.

Thanks for the quick advice guys.

The main reason I was thinking of it is my cousin is an army lad and is also a keen boxer, he does all his runs with a 30 kg one and has massive tree trunk legs and is superfit, I was hoping it could help me in the same way.

Good for him, but he's a boxer. What are you? Maybe you're a potential Army 1500m or cross country runner or skier, where tree trunk legs will not be a good idea. Do general fitness training, specialisation can come later when a good PTI might spot your potential.

Just wait 25 years and you will naturally have an additional 20 kgs to lump around! ;,-)

The 140 pounds I would of spent on the vest is now going to be spent on a night at a hotel on saturday where a rather fat slut is going to let me rag her ass around for the night, but hey, fucks a **** right?

DONT YOU JUDGE ME!

140 quid for a ******* vest!? What's it weighted with, rhodium? Good to see you've come to your senses, anyway. Use condoms, in case she comes out with some 'I'm pregnant' bullshit. Make sure you smash her back doors in, and take some pics.

I used to run around Barker barracks wearing 68 pattern webbing filled with sand! It went very well with No2 dress, cromed tin hat and WOMBAT drill round held above the head, in fact very natty indeed.

Ex RSM 3RHA please note, no amount of me sweating could ever unshag your wife and daughter....

If she pulls that i will just kill her and make it look like suicide, CSI complete series, you have served me well :D

That's more like it. Hell, I wouldn't spend even half that on a fit one. She'd better have fucked like her arse was on fire...
Oh that also will be going on my meal, drinks and condoms, shes been told under no uncertain terms i am not paying for her and she has to **** off and make her own way back after ive fucked her.

Its amazing that she knows what this is, most girls pretend their going to end up marrying you, once they can break some imaginary blokish defence down, when in reality, you always will treat them with less compassion than your mongeral, this is a result in my book.

Sounds like an interesting book you have there, OBD. When's it being published?

Well we are at a blip in the publishing deal at the moment, they wanted to go with something sleek and modern like, how to be the man she wants, I feel, how to humiliate and bully your woman into being so self consciouss and scared of abandonment she will do whatever you say is a far more catchy choice.

We hope it will be out for christmass of course.
