When I was doing a total tone (sort of like tae bo) exercise class I bought some ankle weights in an attempt to make my leg exercises more difficult and they made a world of difference and definitely helped me add some muscle to my rear. These were pretty heavy ankle weights so when I was introduced to the world of Tracy Anderson and was given a fear of lifting anything heavy I invested in some light wrist weights that can double up as ankle weights. I ordered these Reebok weights online as they were the cheapest and lightest (and prettiest!) and have a handy little hole for your thumb to go through.
Now Tracy has some routines that involve wearing two sets of ankle weights or ankle and wrist weights at the same time I invested in some more ankle weights.
I bought these from Rebel Sport for $19.99 and they’re actually a lot better to use as ankle weights as the ones I was using previously as they’re more flexible so are easier to wear.
Check out the following routines that require wrist or ankle weights:
