It's that time of year again when I am slimming down (reduce body fat %) to show off my hard work. I'm looking for an effective way to increase my calorie burning during a routine. I picked up a 40lbs weight vest for christmas and I wanted to know if adding the vest will help increase the rate at which calories are burned during walking/running, cardio, etc.
My question is, will adding the weight vest to my routine aid in reducing overall body fat % in a way that is worth while?
Edited to rephrase my question
