Workouts To Do With Weight Vest to Jump High and Get Faster
There are quite a few workouts to do with weight vest to jump higher and get faster, because that is what it is designed for. The idea behind a weight vest is that it will add weight and make your muscles work harder so when you take it off, you can jump higher and get faster as well.
So what workouts can you do? If you want to both jump high and get faster, then you should switch them up a little bit with running and jumping exercises. My favorite are running 100 meters on the track, this is the workout I use: [do all exercises in order with no more than 90 seconds of rest in between. Perform with weight vest on, and jog back to the starting line in order to stay warm. Also, race the specified distance at 90-95% of top speed.]
- At the starting line, do tuck jumps 10 times then immediately run 100 meters. Take a 90 second rest and then repeat once.
- At the start, perform 10 split-leg squats, then immediately run 150 meters. Take 45 second rest and repeat once.
- At the start, perform 10 squat jumps, then run 100 meters. Take 90 seconds of rest and repeat once.
- At the start, perform 10 split-leg cycles (just like split-leg squats, but switch legs on each jump), then immediately run 150 meters. Take 45 seconds of rest and repeat once.

All of these should take less than 30 minutes to finish, and with a quick warm-up, plus stretching after (don’t stretch before), it should take no more than 45 minutes total, but should take all of your energy to finish.
Do this workout with a weight vest no more than three times per week, and make sure that you also perform the workout without a weight vest also in order to get the most out of it and to jump high and get faster.
