I lost a lot of strength in my squats and pressing lifts since I started to loose fat. I am not too happy haha. I decided to start doing weighted body weight lifts along with my fat-burning routines to gain some "functional" strength.
I do not have a dip belt and plan on using a back pack with weights added in it. The pack I plan on using is a hunting guide type pack that has thick shoulder pads and straps around the chest and waist.
I am sure using a regular back pack would result in injury. Should I be ok with this type of pack?
Another question that is off topic- Are giant sets good for mass and strength?
