    This is a very informative article, as a lifelong athlete, I have never thought about running with a weighted vest. However, after reading about all the benefits that you mentioned here, I may have to give this a try. You said that it will increase your fortitude and strength. This is something that all athletes can benefit from. Are there any negative effects to running with a weighted vest?

      Hi, WMP and thank you.

      All over I believe it´s not so many which know about this possibility but it is very effective. And good to have too in mind that in fact, many people do not just use them while running, but also when lifting weights or doing aerobics.

      On the negative side of using the weighted vest, the most important thing to have in mind is that not use more weight than you can run with. It is like when you are in the gym if you have too many weights on the bar, it is very bad for your body. So it is important, like in the gym, to start slowly and build you up with the weight in mind.
