It’ll change your center of gravity and therefore your body position when hanging. However, that’s neither here nor there on its own. If you’re training for rock climbing, using a harness is probably best, because you won’t be climbing with any weight on your back. For ice or alpine, a backpack may be more event-specific.
Just wondering if their are any cons to using a weighted backpack instead of harness with weights when doing pull-ups? I’ve been using a backpack with water jugs but notice most people use weighted belts or harnesses.
