Ankle and Wrist Weights

Exercising with ankle and wrist weights is a great way to take your body-weight strength training routine to the next level. They're especially useful when traveling and for people who have trouble gripping weights or using their hands. With so many exercise possibilities, you'll be able to use a single pair of ankle or wrist weights to target every muscle group in your body. Below you'll find SparkPeople resources to help you get started with a safe and effective strength-training program that uses these specialized weights. Please note that the demonstrations below use dumbbells, but you can just wear your ankle or wrist weights in place of holding dumbbells to perform each exercise.
