Customer reviewsNot just for the buff body
These are the same sturdy weights that you ll see in a gym. At first glance, you ll think of some young person weighted down while on a treadmill. But I encountered these bands, which fasten easily with Velcro, at a physical therapist and later saw them used in a nursing home. They re excellent, and long enough to be used under or over clothing, around narrow body parts like wrists and ankles, or mostly for women around larger limbs like calves and upper arms. They wipe down easily and are color coded so you can tell the different weights apart. I bought the whole set because it s cost effective even though I don t use the heaviest weights. They ve never sprung a leak of the filling. They re fine when walking or jogging outdoors, but just as useful in the house. Sitting at my computer, I can wear them on my ankles and get a workout on my legs while working at my desk. My mother, who is in a nursing home, has successfully used them to gain strength as well. If you have never tried weights like these, I recommend consulting a book on the proper use of them, as you can damage tendons by just slapping them on and swinging your arms and legs around. With the correct method, however, these are safe, effective and very comfortable. I highly recommend them
