Target your lower body muscle groups, including inner and outer thighs, and get results as your muscles exert effort to lift and balance the weight of these adjustable five-pound ankle weights. Ankle weights are one of the best ways in which to add resistance to your lower body training, by targeting certain muscle groups. The leg and hip joint are like a lever and fulcrum. With the hip being the fulcrum, the farther away the weight, the harder it is to lift and balance. The same can be said for the knee joint. By adding a minimum amount of weight, the leg muscles must exert considerable effort to lift and balance the weights, which provides maximum results. This 5-pound set includes two ankle weights that weigh 2.5 pounds each.
GoFit's Adjustable Ankle Weights (5lb pair/2.5lbs each) are great for adding weighted resistance to your fitness and rehabilitation programs. The traditional styled ankle weights are made of heavy-duty nylon canvas, granulated steel shot packs for added comfort & a zipper closure to hold the weights securely in place.
