The POWERHANDZ POWERSUIT Vs The Weight Vest
Updated: Aug 15, 2020
Tired of that bulky, uncomfortable weight vest you train in every day? Well, look no further. The POWERHANDZ POWERSUIT by Universal Performance is superior to the weight vest. Weight vests are typically used to amplify workouts by making them more intense. However, there are plenty of disadvantages to using a weight vest. The POWERSUIT is the next generation in advanced sports and fitness training. It’s time to move away from the traditional weight vest..
Not Functional AT ALL
First off, you cannot functionally train in a weight vest. In fact, you’re even inviting injury while working out in one. Performing intense aerobic activity such as running with a weighted vest places extra stress on your joints. The leg portion of The Power Suit cuts off well ABOVE the knee with 2.5 lbs wrapped on each thigh...so you’re working your hips and thighs. Evidence shows that when you strengthen the hips and thighs, it automatically strengthens the knee and the ankle. If a person is overweight, the extra pounds on their body add additional stress to the bones. Weight vests that are not secured, or worn improperly, increase your risk of falling during an exercise because the weight is off balance. Now, if you have any kind of knee, or back pain, wearing a weight vest exacerbates the problem. In addition, the injury risk is high while running with a weight vest because it can make you prone to overexertion.
The POWERHANDZ POWERSUIT by Universal Performance does none of that! Because of the weight distribution even standing still, you are developing core strength, and giving your small stabilizing muscles a workout as your body has to work harder to maintain upright healthy posture.
When it comes to wearing a weight vest, it can be extremely uncomfortable. They use a combination of velcro, or elastic straps to secure the vest in place. If you strap your vest too tight, it becomes restrictive and does not allow freedom of movement.
The POWERSUIT feels just like wearing a t-shirt and shorts, but you’re 10 lbs heavier. It’s designed to be fully functional in every aspect. There are 1.25 lbs. woven directly into the material on each side of the chest, each side of the upper back over the shoulder blades, and 2.5 lbs. wrapped on each thigh, so the weight is equally distributed throughout the body.
Weight Vests Are HOT
Performing any kind of physical activity increases your body temperature. A weight vest uses materials like tough nylon or thick canvas fabric. Now, can you imagine adding a weight vest to that? It would make even the smallest of workouts seem way too hot for comfort.
Because the POWERHANDZ POWERSUIT is sleeveless, and meshed all the way around, you get more air circulation and once you’re in the Suit, it doesn’t feel like 10 lbs. So much so, that you can literally wear it underneath your clothes and no one knows you have it on! So just walking in it, you’re getting a workout.
Many running, or jumping activities performed with weight vests are high impact. This means that at some point during your workout, both feet are off the floor, and a lot of impact is then absorbed when landing back to the ground.The impact is absorbed through your legs, feet, ankles, and even your spine. Wearing the weight vest to perform any running, or jumping activities increases the chance of joint-related injuries.
Unlike the weight vest, the POWERHANDZ POWERSUIT evenly distributes the weight throughout the body. This gives your body FULL range of motion, and decreases injury risk by improving overall physical ability.
Weight vests are bulky, resemble paramilitary combat equipment and can only be worn outside of your clothing. There is no hiding the fact that you are wearing a weight vest when you are actually wearing one. Wearing one to the gym might result in a few stares of confusion because they closely resemble bulletproof vests.
The POWERHANDZ POWERSUIT is so functional, you can wear it under your clothes. The design is such, that few can tell that you actually have it on! Go walk around the mall to burn those extra calories! Let’s face it, it is blatantly obvious that The Power Suit is the way to go.
