Weighted Clothing

I want a weighted shirt/pants that aren't bulky and I can wear under a T-shirt and jeans all day doing standard things without it being noticable. Anything like that? Any thing else like slim ankle and upper arm weights that could be hidden by a T-shirt and jeans would be nice too. I'm rather slim, and (most) of my shirts are a little baggy, but the slimmer the better would be nice. (I give hugs too, but I don't care about being unnoticable during hugs too much).

Re: Weighted Clothing

Not that I know of. What kind of poundage are you looking for? Just by looking at the density of common materials, it's apparent that you're not going to get anything of decent weight to be 'unnoticeable.' Plus, why is it necessary to wear this around all day? If you really want to, wear a damn weighted vest. If anyone questions, challenge them to a Fran.

Re: Weighted Clothing

Don't know how baggy, your baggy clothes are but, outside of ankle weights under your pants, you could try 1 lb. dumbells in your back pockets, use as many as you would like. If you wear cargo shorts or pants, there's more pockets for more weight. Small dense items like lead shot, or glass marbles. It will be tough finding small objects that weigh alot.

You could try a weight belt for scuba but that may be too bulky and could be expensive.

Re: Weighted Clothing

I'm wearing two ankle weights under my pants for a total of 20lbs (2x2.5 on each leg). I want to wear it all day because I don't really do any type of exersize, so wearing it all day would get me a bit stronger. And I love the feeling of your leg not actually being there when you take off the weights from everywhere.

What about http://www.nyknyc.com/? I mean, it uses plates, so it's rather thin, no? I mean...it's made for women...so I doubt the shorts will work, but the vest is probably still doable, no?

Or http://www.amazon.com/GoFit-GF-WV40-...537224&sr=8-20

Or http://www.nefitco.com/weightvesthvypak.html

I mean, it's winter, so it wouldn't be too odd if I just started wearing sweaters, and it'd hide it pretty well.

Re: Weighted Clothing

It doesn't look like it really weighs that much. It looks like the weight you will lose will be more due to the fact that the thing is tight neoprene, which will cause you to lose water-weight.

Re: Weighted Clothing

What would be the point of this?

If it's to gain strength I think deadlifts may be a bit more beneficial.

Re: Weighted Clothing

But deadlifting is work, and he is opposed to exercise.

Re: Weighted Clothing

How about chain mail?

(wfs) http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-app.../generic/9080/

I would suggest pairing the shirt with this (wfs): http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-app...s/a733/?cpg=ab

No one will mess around with you at the office.

Do I even need to explain what's wrong with this statement? You're finding solutions to the wrong problems.
