Well, they won't help you for long. ;) I'm not saying you didn't get a good workout, but as far as strength training goes, 1 lb weights will not challenge you for long. As this gets easier, you'll need to do some real strength training with challenging weights to keep up t he benefits!
Heather Writer, mother, wife, and breadwinner. I love to run, but running doesn't love me, so I'm switching to my low-impact bike.
Our gym just started what is called Toning zumba.. I tell you what the zumba was hard enough, but adding these 1lb toning sticks for a full hour. wholy might moley! It was one wonderful very hard work out, I could barley lift these little sticks by the end of class..
If its offered try it! All I know is that I really found out how weak my upper body really was and my arms and shoulders. Time to strengthen them up lolol
These are like little mascaras and they do make noise LOL but its very different and its so much fun!
