I was rewatching DBZ recently and it made me curious about if the weighted clothing thing could work in real life.
Of course, i am not talking about piccolo tier bullshit with bulldozer weights and skyrocketing powerlevels, but if one were to wear more reasonable weights for the most of the day every day - could it work as a way to train ones' stamina, or the effect would be too negligeble/tiring to the point it's not worth it in the end?
What do you think, IST?

    this has already been done and the results are known. certain subgroup of humans have carried around 100lbs or mpre on their body. the end result is larger calves from walking and disintegrated joints.

    do you think Piccolo was considered a handsome Namekian? like was he a Gigachad on Namek, or was he more of a söyjak

      He was an early bloomer since Dende was the same age as Gohan(five) while Picccolo was nine years old during the Namek Saga
      So he probably was more like a Chad there

      I don't think namekians really have any beauty standarts because they don't frick unless there's a prince of all saiyans involved.

    The weighted clothing is a pretty bad way to train, toriyama just has literally no idea at all about physicality or fitness. There is some merit to using something like a weight vest but its really not super impactful, and the spinal loading is kinda cringe especially if running/jumping. The idea of a weighted boot or wristband is turbomoronic. The amount of torque your hip/shoulder joint would be placed under when kicking or punching with this extra distal weight would be far more likely to injure you than make you stronger.

      Wait my boxtrainer sometimes makes us hit with low weight dumbbells in the hands. Is that dangerous?

        It can absolutely be dangerous. Truly low weight will not have as much of an effect or risk, like the weight of a boxing glove for example. But think about this, the weight in your hand here is applying a downward force on your hand and arm as you punch. You are applying a force forward to punch. Because these two forces are not opposing each other, the idea of training a stronger punch with this method is not very effective. Now imagine using a cable machine instead with the same training idea of creating a more powerful and explosive punch. Far more effective.

        Not really, it can be if you are suddenly using 10-15-20 lbs with sloppy form but if you are using less than 5 with good form and build up to it, starting slow for a while and after some time trying to increase the speed with the same way is perfectly safe and it does help to improve your speed.
        The other anon that replied mentioned cable punches, those are really good to train power so he is right about that but dumbbells shadowboxing is also useful, for pure speed it falls behind cable punches but it is great for endurance.

    I carried around an extra 150lbs for literally decades and all I got to show for it are monster calves.

    It's kind of good for maximizing your results from time invested in steady state cardio for weight loss. I wear about 30lbs while walking on the treadmill, which is supposedly good for about 75 extra calories burned in an hour according to online calculators. Hopefully helping build my calves.

    Not sure it's worth it, though. The extra weight means I'm pushing the cheap treadmill to its limit. Actually in the process of adding exhaust fans to it to help keep the motor cool. Plus, it's really fricking tiring. I've done 10 miles a day without it and been fine, but 5 with it kicks my ass. I keep thinking I'll get used to it, but it's been a damn while and it still sucks. 75 calories an hour hardly seems worth it some days.

    You can use vests and ankle weights for weighted calisthenics and as a way to trigger post activation potentiation wich is just a fancy way of saying your muscles are fired up before an exercise to perform better.
    This is why people feel very light when they wear ankle weights and take them off but this effect only last for as long as your muscles are fired up and will go back to normal when it cools down, the same will happen if you wear weighted clothing every day, when you take it off you will feel very light for a while but once your muscles feel there's less resistance to move your body it will go back to normal so it is a waste of time to wear them every day.

    If you want to train with a vest and ankle weights just do weighted calisthenics or if you are going to play a sport you can put it on a bit before the game or training to get that pap effect and have better performance.

    If it's cold outside, the clothes I wear during training weigh at least three pounds. I count that as a weighted exercise.

    weighted clothing is just a worse version of carrying weights. if you go for a jog with weighted clothing you're only training legs. try carrying it in your arms, or if it's light, overhead. this will do the same training for your legs as if you were using weighted clothes, but also has the added benefit of training arms, traps, shoulders, grip, upper back, core, etc
