Just wondering what peoples opinions are in regards to substituting a weighted vest for conditioning work with a loaded backpack?
I don’t currently have access to a weighted vest (something which I later intend to purchase) however, I do have a decent quality daysack - would loading this with plates be a decent swap for weighted vest work?
If so, what kind of weight should I be looking to use? I’m in the military so I’m quite accustomed to carrying heavy loads on my back whilst ‘tabbing’ - but in regards to conditioning what weight do you think I should be using / good place to start?
I know there could be multiple different answers in regards to load - just a general bit of feedback from you guys would be great. I was planning to start with 20kg and see how that goes…
