Excellent for effort-free toning,
This review is from: FITNESS-MAD Wrist and Ankle Weight (Sports)
These weights are well made and obviously easy to use. I actually got two sets of two and use simultaneously on ankles and wrists. The weight isn't much if you're looking for a heavy and focused workout, but if you wear them while doing other exercises they can considerably add to the level of difficulty and contribute to the result.
These are ideal for more 'casual' users who are not so gym-minded (we're still the majority, I suspect). I wear the weights around the house, partly while doing some light exercise like stretches or running on the spot, but I also leave them on while doing anything, from housework to reading. The result is amazing: you get used to them in a few seconds and go about your business normally, but the extra kg on each arm and leg makes you exercise without thinking about it. Obviously you can wear them outside the house around the ankles (they're discreet) and intensify your walking even in short distances. I've been using them casually for about a month now and I already have visible results (i.e. more toned shoulders, biceps etc.). Even if you're not aiming for specific results, they're a nice way to burn more calories without actually working out.
I guess the above would apply to any similar product, but from what I've seen so far, the specific product is well made and durable, and I'd recommend it highly.

How do you get more toned shoulders from these, by wearing them around the wrists specifically? thanks

I'm not sure how to explain this in proper terms, but I do two main exercises that help tone shoulders:
(a) Standing up, I lift both my arms straight ahead and parallel to the floor, and then move them in small circles in opposite directions. This actually puts pressure on abs as well.
(b) Standing up, I spread my hands left and right parallel to the floor, and again move them in small circles, first clockwise and then anti-.
I really hope this made some sense. Enjoy!

Hello, thanks for your review I was just wondering if these weights rattle? as I've had some in the past that rattle which makes them less discreet whilst at the gym. Thanks

No, they don't rattle at all. They're filled with sand (I think) quite compact, and once you've fastened them with the velcro tapes they stay firmly in place and don't produce any sound even when you're running.
Hope this helps!
