ANKLE WEIGHTS TRAINING
Ankle weights can be used for light training, injury rehabilitation, core training or just to add variety.
Strapping on ankle weights can amplify the benefits of any strength-training move you’re already performing ie. leg lifts, V-Sits, and Bicycles. The core is required to work extra hard to keep the legs elevated.
A variety of movements can be performed depending on the adopted starting position.
Hip flexion, extension, abduction with leg straight or bent
Combinations of hip abductor movements
Leg raises, hip adduction strengthening, reverse abdominal curls
Hamstring curls, leg raises
On All Fours
