I see many people running on the treadmill with ankle weights at the gym...

i never wore them on my ankles.......but im warning you.....DONT go running a long distance with them on your wrists.

i am an amateur athletic runner and going training with 1kg weights on each wrist made me feel like i was gonna pass out

omg these sound fun. argos is in the uk though isn't it? is there a place in the us that carries these? i don't really need my legs to be more toned but they sound like they're worth a shot anyway.

just be careful how you exercise with them, or you'll end up with shortened soccer-ish muscles instead of lengthened ones like ballet dancers have.
