Progressive Weight Training
Unlike other, static ankles weights, the All Pro Aquatic Ankle Weights allow users to add and subtract weights as needed. The set comes loaded with 5 pounds of weights (2.5 lbs/leg) and is adjustable in 5 ounce increments. Being able to adjust the Aquatic Ankle Weights to your body's exact needs results in a fully customizable, lower body workout. For a full body workout, pair the ankle weights with another of All Pro's progressive training devices; the All Pro Adjustable Aquatic Wrist Weights. These upper body weights fit comfortably around the wrists and allow you to add essential load bearing exercises to your training routine. And challenge your midsection with the All Pro Power Strider Exercise Belt. This device also allows for its weights to be added and removed as required to develop long, lean muscles in the core and legs.
Allows Full Range of Motion
All Pro Ankle Weights were designed to keep the weight away from the ankles. This exclusive design won't hinder range of motion and allows for full freedom of movement. The weights are fitted with a neoprene outer cover for minimal water retention. This helps keep the All Pro devices at a standard weight without getting overly heavy from water logging. In order to help you get the most out of your ankle weights, All Pro has provided a comprehensive instruction sheet in the weights' packaging. Though not as adjustable as the All Pro Ankle Weights, there other types of water weights that exercisers might also enjoy. The Water Gear Aquatic Wrist Weights and Ankle Weights come in a few different non-adjustable weight levels and can help add resistance training to your entire body.
Comfortable, Smooth Fit
While the All Pro Ankle Weights challenge lower body muscle groups, they remain soft and comfortable on the delicate ankle area. The sides of the weight conform to the contours of the ankle, while the stress-free heel strap helps protect the potentially vulnerable Achilles tendon. The placement of the weights also ensures that they stay firmly in place during any type of rigorous, water-based exercise. Not only do the cushioned flaps protect the ankle area, but they also help keep the weights secure. The weights are equipped with a slip proof buckle and touch fastener closure for an easy, always-reliable fit. To keep your weights looking and feeling great for as long as possible, be sure to rinse them after each and every use. Never wash them in a washing machine and be sure to air dry the All Pro weights after rinsing.
The AquaGear Opinion
The AquaGear testers loved that these ankle weights were completely adjustable to each users needs. Unlike other progressive weights that use tiny pellets, the solidly built weighted inserts won't have you worrying about anything breaking or spilling onto the deck. Testers commented on the weight's solid construction and how the replaceable pouch means that these weights can really withstand the test of time. AquaGear swimmers thought that the aquatic ankle weights could be made light enough to use while swimming laps and then amped up to challenge any aqua aerobics routine.
The Bottom Line
For a truly customizable lower body workout, pick up a pair of All Pro Aquatic Ankle Weights.
