Weekly Workout: Weight Vest 50-50

Weight Vest Weekend

Here is a workout that requires a weight vest or back pack of 30-40 pounds (or 25% of your bodyweight) in segments of the plan. During the non-weighted pullups, planks, abs, squats and cardio there is no need to wear the weight vest, however, during the pushup and run superset and the stair climb and squat superset, you need to wear a weight vest. This workout is tough even without a weight vest, so if you do not have one, try it anyway. 

Total repetitions of pullups to be done throughout the workout:

  • Pullups 25 weighted – Can be spread out through the weight vest portion of the workout
  • Pullups 25-50 non weighted – Can be spread out in multiple sets through the non-weight vest portion of the workout
