Step 5: It Takes Two

Cut the duct tape fabric in half, now you have two pieces (front & back of vest). Next begin making the straps by cutting and measuring a piece of duct tape about 33". Cut another piece the same size and lay it on top of the first, you now have one strap (repeat for second strap).
Attach both straps to the front and back of the vest, make sure the person head can easily fit thru the opening of the vest.
hi! this is great! i was searching for this for soo long :D i have just a question: did the weights alwais stay adherent, or camed of during pratice?? thanks
While I myself am a big fan of wearing weighted any/everything to burden your muscles as much as possible, these are generally not sold in children's sizes because there is some evidence that they can cause lasting damage to developing bodies. <br> <br>If your bones and muscles are not in good alignment, even an adult could put unnecessary wear and tear on their joints- with a growing child, this joint stress and (if the weights are not very evenly appropriately and evenly distributed) posture-deforming weight can quickly cause lasting problems. <br> <br>So please: Use in short bursts, and please make sure form and posture are encouraged more than speed. <br> <br>Nobody likes hunchbacks.
a very interesting and well done &quot;ible&quot; although some of the pics are a little dark
