October 12, 2007, Newsletter Issue #295: Ankle Weights

Tip of the Week

Never use ankle weights when walking for exercise. Your ankles have enough work to do in fitness walking. Wrist or hand weights are not as likely to cause injury as ankle weights, but can still stress your joints. If you want to burn more calories during walking exercise, walk farther or faster. If you want to get stronger, lift weights.
