If you’re on the hunt for new (and inexpensive) ways to enhance your workout routine, don’t sleep on ankle weights. There are a lot of exercise accessories out there, but none quite measure up to a weighted cuff. Ankle weights add resistance to your strength training, which can improve balance and help tone and build muscle in your hamstrings, quads, and glutes. Since they’re so easy to just put on, you can even wear them around the house or on neighborhood walks. Our favorite thing about incorporating ankle weights?
