Safety with Ankle & Wrist Weights
If you want to add resistance to your workouts with ankle and wrist weights you need to pay attention to a few factors before you use arm weights and leg weight add ons. To prevent injury to tendons and joints, firstly take care to test out different levels of weight to get the right level for you. Begin at the lower weights and work up to heavier weights in careful steps. You may not even need to scale up if you find comfortable wrist weights or ankle weights at a lower capacity. The ankle and wrist need to feel comfortable whatever activity you are carrying out. Secondly, be mindful of overdoing it. It can be easy to plunge right in and use wrist and ankle weights consistently for several days in a row and find you are in too much pain the following week to continue. Be measured and sensible with your approach and listen to your body. Take rest days from wearing ankle and wrist weights or just wear one set. If you want to wear leg weights when performing leg exercises or arm weights to add resistance to strength training sessions, be cautious of any existing injuries to muscles or joints. Overuse or too much, too soon on areas of your body that are weaker from injury or a existing condition can cause further damage.
