Hello My Friends,

I have been having an ongoing dialog with a man that thinks using a weight vest is the same as lifting weights. I told him that I completely disagree.

Here's my logic. Due to Isometric Contraction and Concentrated bodyweight calisthenics, I am ultra lean and ultra hard. I do not know why Isometrics cause one's metabolism to heat up in the way that it does but it does. I used to do hundreds of Atlas Style Push-ups, Sit-Ups, Leg Raises, Squats, Calf Raises, and Dynamic Self Resistance exercises. When I went to Isometrics I didn't feel like doing hundreds of reps of the exercises outlined above after completing 15 minutes of Ultra Intense Isometrics. So after completing my Isometrics, I decided to use a weight vest in order to cut way back on my Iso-Dynamic exercise reps. For Push-Ups, I use a 32, 42, or 52-pound vest and my reps vary between 15 and 25 reps per set. I use the same weight for squats, lunges, and calf raises as I do for Push-Ups. I'm still doing the same movements as I did before but they are ultra concentrated with the same plane of motion I used before. I prefer intensity to volume at this stage of my life. I turn 67 years old in October and my waistline is 29".
