Weighted Vest Walking

So I picked up an adjustable weighted vest to start using when I walk my dog for my ‘easy’ conditioning sessions. Using about 34 lbs right now(BW 182) with the intent to build up to the 60 lb limit for 1+ mile walks. 2 things to say about it, first, wow. I do a lot of loaded carry work so I didn’t expect it to be as taxing, wish I would have picked one up a long time back. Second, bending over to pick up the dog poop with it on after 15 min should be considered it’s own workout. Anyone one the fence about getting one for ‘easy’ conditioning should definitely buy one.
