The Hölkkä training vest boosts the strength and mobility of your upper body and releases neck strain and tension
The Hölkkä training vest consists of a posture-supporting vest, elbow straps and elastic resistance bands that resist your arm motions when walking or running. You can use the vest as a posture corrector in your day-to-day activities or to enhance your workouts.
Did you know that many runners and hikers tend to tense their shoulders and neglect using their arms? Do you need posture support or more mobility for your upper body?
Normal jogging mostly strains your lower body only, but the Hölkkä training vest ensures that your upper body muscles, too, get the workout they need. The activation of the upper body muscles helps to synchronise the movement of your upper and lower body and ensure that the seamless flow of motion also engages your core.
The vest supports your posture and includes your arms in the workout. The perfect posture and added speed boost from the arm motion will help you maintain an effective pace throughout your hike or run!
Are your shoulders tight? Does the tension in your neck cause fatigue, headaches and an aversion to exercise?
This kind of neck and shoulder tension is very common and afflicts more than one-third of the working population. The treatment recommendation for acute neck pain is activity.
Using the Hölkkä training vest when running or jogging activates the muscles in the neck and shoulder area as well as the core musculature. This increases circulation and metabolism in the muscles and helps to release any tension. The vest supports the natural position and posture of the back, ensuring that the respiratory muscles can function more freely.
You can also use the vest without the resistance to improve your sitting or standing posture when working, studying or doing chores, for example.
