Introduction: Weighted Backpack
Greetings! A weighted backpack is a great way to add more resistance for certain workout exercises. I use this for the squat along with other exercises such as calf raises, lunges, etc.
Step 1: Equipment Needed
All you need to is an old backpack and some weight plates.
Step 2: Load the Backpack
Insert the weight plates in the backpack. You can vary with the amount of weight and the number of plates to fit your needs. Make sure the plates are standing vertically because it can be uncomfortable with the plates lying flat.
Step 3: Squat
Place the backpack on your back and start squatting. Go deep and let the extra resistance work for you. Happy Training!

Put your weights in bubble wrap, its more comfortable. And watch your limit of your backpack. A plate on foot hurts a lot :)
