Water Gear Weights
Want to feel the burn? Water Gear weights for the wrists and ankles offer gainful resistance training for passionate swimmers and water exercisers. Their fixed-weight designs are the heftiest on the market today, making them ideal training tools for triathletes, masters swimmers, and water aerobics enthusiasts.
Weights For Swimmers
Training for race season? Swim with Water Gear wrist weights for an upper-body challenge that delivers easier stroking power when the weights come off. Or get kicking with Water Gear ankle weights that demand extra work from your glutes, quads, and hamstrings. Choose from 3lb, 5lb, or 10lb pairs that build muscle and improve stamina. Be wary that you don't swim with weights too often as they are primarily for strength-building, but promote poor stroke alignment.
Weights For Water Exercise
Whether you're a runner, a yogi, a boxer, or a football player, Water Gear weights provide effective cross-training resistance that's potent enough to challenge even the fittest athletes. Swim weights can be doubled up to increase the effect or wrapped around the waist to create powerful drag to work against. Water Gear's ankle and wrist weights are perfect for water-jogging, aqua Pilates, or simple weight-lifting.
Water Gear weights can also be utilized by paraplegic people to keep their feet firmly on the ground during a water exercise routine.
Caring for Water Gear Weights
When you've finished a set, be sure to place your weights on the deck, rather than toss them. Water Gear weights are constructed solidly, but utilize an inner bladder to contain the weight material. If they get slammed too many times, the metal shavings may spill out.
Like the rest of your swim gear, Water Gear weights are susceptible to damage caused by chlorine and other pool additives. To extend the life of your new swim weights, you'll need to rinse them in fresh water after every use and allow them to dry completely before storing them.
Seeking weights that grow with you? All Pro weights are adjustable in 5oz increments, making them the perfect accessory for strength-training or hydrotherapy. If you're rehabilitating an injury, check in with your physical therapist before adding weights to your exercise routine.
