WHAT IS THE ANKLE / WRIST WEIGHTS?
Ankle weights and wrist weights come in the form of bands or
pouches with weights that help shape and tone your muscles. When strapped to
your ankles or wrists, they add different levels of resistance to any lower and
upper body movement.
The main purpose of Ankle / Wrist Weights is to increase the
resistance and thus, the challenge and benefits of your workouts. The Weights
you wear shouldn’t be too heavy as even lighter weights can effectively boost
the intensity of the workout. The added benefits you gain are the result of
having to work harder because of the extra weight you are carrying. Unlike
small dumbbells, Wrist / Ankle weights are ideal, because they keep your hands
free. The American Council on Exercise suggests that an individual who uses
this form of weights can increase her heart rate and elevate her oxygen

their cardio workout. The American Council on Exercise encourages the use of

Using wrist weights can provide extra benefits to your
workout by increasing its intensity and burning more calories. Wrist weights
complement an aerobic workout that emphasizes the lower half of your body by
toning arms and shoulders to turn routine activities into stealth workouts.
Ankle weights can help to enhance a wide variety of
different exercises, as many require you to lift your ankles up off of the
ground. They provide a convenient way to add resistance to the exercises
traditionally done using just your body weight, such as side leg lifts or
raises. When performing pull-ups, it offers greater resistance to your arms and
upper body muscles.
They can also be helpful in increasing your workout when
you’re walking or running but the weights must be chosen carefully. Running on
a treadmill while wearing ankle weights will increase the training intensity
and energy expenditure, potentially resulting in greater cardiovascular fitness
and weight loss compared to running without the added weight.
