Today we are spicing it up! Get ready for this leg toner with ankle weights.
Heading down to the mat is a great way to really tone your legs. This spicy workout is even spicer with ankle weights! While the moves are simple, such as leg extensions and leg lifts, the repetitions are where you start to feel that heat for an effective workout that is only 10 minutes long!
There are many types of ankle weights out there, but I have to say I love these lightweight bala ones. I used to work out at a studio that used heavier ones and honestly, they just felt bulky and too much. I would would rather do more controlled mindful reps than overwork my legs with a struggle. Also, these can be used on your wrists and easily travel with you on a vacation.
Working out with ankle weights helps target the leg and hip muscles. They can really build strength in your lower body. If you want to challenge your calves, glutes, thighs, hip flexors and full lower body, I highly recommend them. Again, those slow mindful movements are going to be more beneficial in your workout rather than cause injury.
If you are starting out a new exercise program, try using your own body weight first. Get your body and mind comfortable with the movements and then try add on ankle weights as you increase your confidence. Ankle weights can be a great tool to build strength after an injury, for seniors, or for anyone looking to really sculpt and tone during a workout. Just ease into it! Start with light weights. Use that mindful energy to focus on that control and body alignment. And grow from there!
