Crossfit Workout Video Using MRI Narrow Vest
If you are looking for heavy weighted vest than this is definitely well worth looking. The customer reviews are very good with most people given this five star feedback.
The any downside that we could see in the reviews were that people have said that this is quite narrow shouldered and if you have wider shoulders you may find it a bit of a tight fit but it is definitely worth a look if you want something that is really heavy and brilliant for weight lifting! You also need to use your own weights which could be an issue for some.
Make sure this is the style of weights you want to use with it. I’m guessing most of you will want the weights include and wont’ want to use your own. In that case, you want to look at the HumanX vest or VForce Vest that has excellent mobility for Crossfit and the weight is included.
