Weighted vest training

Yacstar Yacstar

I am considering buying a weighted vest to train in - the logic being if I can run at 7 minute/mile pace with it on, I may be able to trick my body into running faster - due to being lighter. The vest weighs 12kg.

Any constructive advice/experiences had would be appreciated

I used one a last year and had some good results and believe them to be good training aid although im a 97 kg rugby player and just about manage 8.30min/miles. So if your a racing snake go for it!
