These two weights are great for toning your arm muscles - especially if you have 'bingo wings' like me. It is the size and design of these that make them so easy and comfortable to use. The weight fits perfectly into the palm of your hand, so that your grip fits neatly around it, so that your thumb almost meets your fingers. There is a comfortable foam cover, which is non slip, so you only need a light grip to keep it in your palm, and the elasctic band gives extra security around the back of the hand.
I find these 1kg weights just right for doing 3 sets of 10 lifts, slowly in various positions, which is toning my arms nicely. If I was going walking or jogging I would choose the 0.5kg weights instead.
I like these because, they are very comfortable, small to store away easily, fit my grip perfectly and I keep them by my computer to use every now and then. - Go on get toned for the summer!
