The 10-Minute Weight Vest Workout

Michael McNamara

Burn calories and build muscle by adding a weight vest to a bodyweight workout. It's a great way to get more out of your fitness routine, especially if you're pressed for time. The weight vest provides resistance, so as opposed to searching for dumbbells between exercises or working in on machines in a busy gym, you can keep moving quickly from one exercise to the next. Try a weight vest like this one from our partner SKLZ. Keep one at home or bring it to the gym to maximize this ultra-efficient 10-minute workout.

Equipment

Training

Perform all six movements consecutively, keeping your rest between moves to a minimum. Rather than counting reps, do each move for 30 seconds. When you complete all six exercises, rest for about a minute, and then repeat the series of moves. (Exercises shown below without a weight vest; wear a weight vest throughout the workout to increase the challenge.)
