And Now, a Dude Runs On a Treadmill In Full Plate Armor [Video]

So, researchers at the University of Leeds conducted an experiment to discover what we already know—running is harder while wearing full plate armor. More specifically, soldiers in medieval times would expend twice as much energy running and fighting in plate as they would have without it.

Of course, the really interesting thing here is that there is actually a guy dressed like a knight running on a treadmill in the video after the break.
