Ankle weights are a key tool in improving upper and lower leg strength.
Ankle weights are typically used to increase the intensity of exercises. The weight is strapped around the ankles and is used to add resistance while working on particular muscle groups, such as during leg exercises.
Ankle Weights Benefits
Ankle weights can be used in a number of different scenarios. They are able to provide resistance training for muscles, and can also promote stability and improve range of motion.
Ankle weights are typically worn over the ankle or at the ball of the foot to increase weight bearing load on muscles and joints during exercises such as squats and lunges.
Ankle weights are a popular weightlifting accessory for two reasons:
- To increase weight on the feet for various exercises such as calf raises, and
- To create an extended range of motion during hip flexion (bend over).
Ankle weights provide lower body resistance that can be used with calve raises and other exercises.
