Wrist & Ankle Weights

Recommended Posts

I recently bought some. 5lbs on each ankle, 2.5lbs on each wrist.I go to uni and any time I am walking or going out during the day I wear em (past few days).I notice when walking is more difficult etc... but I was wondering what are the most effective (without being overly strenuous, e.g running with the leg weights on) ways to use them.Cheers.

I don't think they are aimed to develop those regions.They aim to develop tone and extra physical exertion when moving.I wear them because if I am on the way to uni I can't do any physical activity bar walking, this makes walking a little more effort.Some people use them when running.

why not run to uni?
Involves a motorway.Plus when carrying a lappy it's not the most comfortable feeling.

i think its a waste to add that extra weight like that. you can use ankle weights for doing ab workouts, and leg work outs, and wrist ones for shoulder's and boxing practice which also targets shoulders etc.those are targetted bodyparts that are worked out to fatigue over a short intense time. wearing an ankle weight to walk to uni when you only burn a tiny amt of calories is wasted energy imo.u dont need leg weights to run. if ur trying to gain strength then build up speed endurance, if ur trying to lose bodyfat then find a place to run if u dont go gym and do proper cardio.

I swear it's mostly a gimmick or for people who are injured and need to get back into walking slowly./100% C/S about "boxing" when people can't even throw a punch.Saw some c*nt take a running fly kick at the bag in esporta last night. Fully smh.
