FAQs: Our Best Selling Pilates Ankle Weights/Wrist Weights 2023
Are you looking for a workout accessory that can take your fitness routine to the next level? Look no further than ES FIT ankle weights! These versatile and comfortable weights are the perfect addition to any workout, especially pilates, mat or reformer, and are sure to help you achieve your fitness goals in 2023.
Why are ankle weights good for pilates?
Ankle weights can be an incredibly useful tool for Pilates Queens! By adding resistance to your Pilates workouts, ankle weights (when used on ankles) or wrist weights (when used on wrists) can help to tone and strengthen your muscles, leading to improved flexibility and overall fitness. Pilates exercises often focus on smaller, stabilizing muscles, and ankle weights can help to challenge these muscles in a new way & bring that spicyness into your workout!
Additionally, ankle weights can be especially useful for Pilates mat exercises. These exercises are typically done lying down, which can make it more difficult to engage your muscles fully. By wearing ankle weights, you can add extra resistance to your movements, making them more challenging and effective.
It's important to note, however, that not all Pilates exercises are suitable for ankle weights. Exercises that require a lot of jumping or quick movements, for example, may be better without ankle weights. As always, it's important to listen to your body and follow a qualified trainer who can guide you through these.
Will they fit around my wrists?
Absolutely. We often have ladies ask this question, which is why we designed them with an extra long velcro strap making them fit to a wide range of wrists & ankles. This also means you can tighten them as much as you need, when you need. Most people enjoy having a snug fit but they really are a one-size-fits all!
Is it good to walk with ankle weights?
Yes, walking with ankle weights can be a great way to increase the intensity of your workout and add resistance to your lower body. However, it's important to choose the right weight for your fitness level and to start slowly, gradually increasing the weight and duration of your workouts over time. We personally LOVE our 1LB pair for walks & change between using on Ankles or Wrists. You can find our favourite colours here.
Is it 1LB/2LB each or combined?
Great Question! The weight noted on the title of the product is the total combined weight. So for our 2LB pair, it's 1LB per weight, and for the 1LB pair, it's 0.5LB per weight. Each product comes in a set.
Is 2LB ankle weight PAIR good?
Yes, a 2-pound ankle weight pair is a really great option for pilates (and trust us it doesn't sound much but it's definitely deceiving)! This weight will provide enough resistance to help tone and strengthen your muscles, without putting too much strain on your joints.
What are Power Bracelets?
Power Bracelets are our own unique name for Ankle Weights! This is because we feel so powerful when putting them on and they strap on like a bracelet. We also think they are a super cute accessory which deserved a super cute name! These weights can be used for a variety of workouts and are designed to comfortably add resistance and weight to multiple exercises.
What exercises are best for Power Bracelets?
Power Bracelets are a great addition to any body weight workout, from pilates, to squats to HIIT training, barre, walking, and more. They are especially useful for strengthening & toning the upper body, booty and core in any workout.
What weight should I get?
ES FIT offers two options for their Power Bracelets: the regular set, which weighs around 1LB combined, and the XL set, which weighs around 2LB combined. The best option for you will depend on your fitness level and the types of exercises you plan to do. The smaller set is recommended for those who will use them more regularly for pilates, barre, and walking, while the XL set is better for those engaging in more resistance and strength training.
How do I use Power Bracelets?
Power Bracelets are easy to use, with a velcro strap that easily fits around your ankles or wrists. You can use them just like any other hand-held weights, seamlessly integrating them into all workout styles.
Can I clean them?
Yes! It's easy to clean your Power Bracelets with an antiseptic wipe for the silicon panels. Simply wipe on both sides and they'll be ready to use for your next workout.
