Use in Pool on on Land
Used in the pool, these weights will not mar, scratch or rust the pool floor like lead based ankle weights often do. Wrist and ankle cuff weights are used as a way of adding leverage resistance to the arms and legs in exercise workouts. Hands can remain free as the wrist cuff doesn’t need to be held in a grip, and the ankle cuff is not attached to any major muscle and therefore can be used in almost any exercise.
Benefits of Using Wrist/Ankle Weights
Wrist/ankle weights can provide a good workout for your muscles when performing even simple movements such as kicking, walking, jumping, using a jump rope or shadow boxing because a person doesn’t have to hold the weights with the hands. Wrist/ankle weights allow individuals to move their arms and legs freely, providing good resistance and creating a more effective workout.
