What are Wrist and Ankle Weights?
Ankle and wrist weights are wearable weights that come in a variety of sizes, weight levels, and styles. These wearable products add weight to the limbs to increase strength, endurance, toning, and helps push the exerciser to the next level. With an additional few pounds added, the individual's heart rate and oxygen consumption increases, which results in a greater benefit for each workout session. These are available in a range of weight levels, from under 1 lb to 5 lb ankle weights and even up to 20 lb ankle weights. Some products, like the CanDo Adjustable Ankle Weight, have slots that allow the user to insert or remove weights depending on the exercise.
Wearable Weight Key Benefits
Wearable weights are ideal for a wide range of exercises. Some prefer to add ankle and wrist weights to their everyday exercise routine while others employ these weights throughout the day during their natural movements. Many people enjoy using adjustable wrist weights for walking to improve upper-body strength while doing cardiovascular exercise. Whether these are being used for exercise routines or as an added benefit to a daily walk, these weights can benefit many different people.
Adding ankle and wrist weights to the natural movements of the body can result in muscle toning. Much of a person's day is spent doing light cardiovascular activity, like walking or cleaning up around the house. If ankle or wrist weights are thrown into the mix, these mundane activities can double as a muscle-toning exercise.
Wrist weights for walking and adjustable ankle weights are a great way to train for endurance. Using additional weight during exercises or cardiovascular activity stimulates the muscles to enhance endurance. Many people use wearable weights to achieve higher endurance. Once the weights are removed, athletes can feel lighter and perform better.
