Ankle weights work by adding a constant but comfortable resistance to your workout, making your muscles work harder during even the most simple of moves – take a leg raise for example.

Adding an ankle weight to a leg raise intensifies it for better toning and they can be used in all kinds of workouts, from yoga to aerobics, boxing, pilates and walking.
Ankle weights are also handy if you’re recovering from an injury, as they can be used to strengthen during rehab.
