THE POWER
OF MICROLOAD

Loading your body with small amounts of distributed weight can help you build strength, power and endurance.

How it works

The principles behind MicroLoad are simple:

  • By placing weight on the parts of the body that are moving, you increase the challenge to the active muscles.
  • By keeping the weight light, you can move with nearly the same speed and intensity.
  • By distributing the weight across your body, there is no interference to how you move naturally.

What this means:

This means you can increase the effectiveness of your training and realize greater results, without changing anything but what you wear.
