Hello all, I was wondering if I could get your opinions?
I enjoy walking as well as biking. In the winter I don't bike because the weather here is terrible, but I spent many hours walking. I was wondering about the effect of ankle weights, and wearing them throughout the day. I have weight to loose and am thinking any way I can burn calories by going about my daily routine I will invest in.
I also like to jog on the treadmill but sometimes I really feel it in my knees when I go up and down stairs. I was thinking that leg weights would be a good idea because they are below my knees and therefore there is less weight coming down on them. Do you people think that this makes sense?
I spend allot of time walking around with about an estimated 30 to 40 pounds on my back most days, but that is only to and from, as well as at school. This kinda bothers my knees a bit so when I go for walks I do not consider this feasible because I am trying to save my knees. That is why I thought ankle weights would be a good idea instead of weight on my back. Mind you my ankle weights wont be 20 Lbs apiece but I figure any bit helps, and I would also hope that since they are below my knees that they would not cause any fatigue on them.
What do you guys think?
