HOW TO USE YOUR TILE CARRIER: PRESS and PROTECT
Plate carriers used in the gym for peak physical fitness and on the streets for their intended purpose are a hybrid of bulletproof vests and a regular concealed carry plate carrier. Designed for use with ballistic panels or loaders, plate carriers offer many advantages for heavy training and for law enforcement – but they are two very different purposes that require different methods.

If you know how to use a plate carrier in the gym, you can get more out of any workout. They are an excellent alternative to special vests, provided that they fit you correctly and distribute the load correctly on the body. Because they are more versatile than traditional vests, you can comfortably wear a plate carrier while doing planks, squats and push-ups, lunges, and a number of other bodyweight exercises.

WEIGHT LOAD OF VESTS AND PLATE CARRIERS
The weight load in special vests differs from plate carriers. Both add additional resistance to bodyweight exercises such as pull-ups, running, and jumping rope, but they differ fundamentally in their shape, load-bearing capacity, and weight distribution. Vests allow you to add weight in small increments, up to a certain point, and are usually only designed to carry gear specifically made for vests. Inserts for inner plates start with a certain weight – the weight of your plates, which are designed vests with a MOLLE system that allows weight to be added and distributed where needed. There are many different weight plates available for use in sports with your standard plate carrier from many brands.

Your organization, department, or unit has its own rules about what types of plate carriers you can wear and how to use them. Always consult your manager before choosing a plate carrier and before making any changes to the way it is used.
REQUIREMENTS TO WHICH YOU SHOULD PAY ATTENTION WHEN CHOOSING A TILE CARRIER
Weight and protection are the two most important concerns in protection plates, but comfort is a close third – if you spend all day trying to stay comfortable, you will be less effective at the task at hand.
Choosing the right law enforcement gear really depends on what you need to do. Even though you can use your CrossFit plate carrier for training as well as for a specific purpose at work, most people still choose to use separate models for each of these purposes to minimize wear and tear and keep the protective model in working order.
