I recently purchased a pair of ankle weights to wear while I work out on the treadmill. Apparently, adding some additional weight makes your body work harder so I can see the benefit of wearing them while exercising, but can I wear them all day long and get some benefit even when I’m not working out? I work from home so it’s not like I have to wear them in the office. Perhaps there’s a downside to wearing them all the time (except when sleeping or going out somewhere).
So, is there a benefit from wearing ankle weights when you are just walking around and not exercising, or can it cause more harm than good?
