WeightVest.com – I have fallen in love with my 50lb weight vest. In order to cause muscle growth you need to stress the muscle with increased weight. This stimulates the release of growth hormones. The way that I found works the best is through adding a weight vest. You can still do whole body movement (like I love) but you also build size because you are carrying a 50lb monkey on your back.
