Ankle weights


Recommended Posts

Hi! I was wondering about ankle weights, I've heard that it's a great way to strengthen your legs, but also that it can make your legs bulky and build the wrong muscles. What are your opinions on this matter? And if it's a good way to gain strength, do you know any particular exercises? Thank you!

I wouldn't use leg weights, even the very light 1-pounders, except for therapeutic reasons and under the direction of a physician and/or physical therapist. They can easily build legs as you've described, but for some conditions they are a godsend. Those are best left to the medical pros.
