The Benefits of Ankle Weights
Part of the reason ankle weights are so great is that they’re versatile. You can bring them anywhere, strap them to your feet while traveling and use them on your ankles or in your hands as weights if you’re stuck at a gym-less hotel or any place where you can do your workouts.
When used correctly, ankle weights can target and isolate muscles that grow weak (the glutes, which are inactive all day from sitting, for example). They can be useful in a physical therapy setting, too-say if you’re suffering from something like injured or weak hamstrings or knee issues.
They allow you to move freely and perform movements you can’t with traditional weight equipment. (Have you ever tried doing a donkey kick with a dumbbell? Case in point.) “Ankle weights allow you to move in nearly every direction and rotation imaginable. This is particularly important for hip work. “The hip is a ‘ball joint’ that moves in all directions. It’s important to strengthen the numerous movement patterns and large and small muscles that are at play.”
Even simply walking around with them on your feet can make a difference. Wearing ankle weights can add impact forces, which may help with maintaining bone density.
