Of course, of course McConaughey runs in a weighted training vest. His pecs aren't schlepping around any 140 pounds of solid iron like this ZFL pullover though.

The ZFL from ZFO is a heavy-duty 1200D reinforced nylon vest with double padded shoulders and interior mesh venting. That's to reduce the chances its pocketed poundage will leave you cut, bloody, bruised and passed out from heat stroke in a pool of your own sweat. Reduce the chances. Though a fraction of the cost of a Muscle Suit, the weighted vest will award peak levels of fitness only to those who pay double the price in effort and stamina.

The full set of weights included with ZFL vest enables adjustments by 3-pound increments up to the 140-pound maximum. Weights are all distributed around the high torso area to protect heaving stomachs from pounding against them while running. Weighted vests are suitable for all-purpose training and weight loss in addition to focused workouts for improving speed, endurance, and the ability to impress the ladies standing in line at the bar by holding a plank for 10 minutes. Because you know what they say: if you can't afford to buy a woman's Tamarind-Acai Margatinis, the next best thing is regaling her with feats of strength while she waits to get her own. And maybe one for you too.

The ZFL Weighted Vest is a top Dude Gift for an Athlete pick.
