What You Should Know
The Cathe Ergo Wing Ankle / Wrist Weights increase workout intensity by adding weight to the body during workouts. Users can choose to strap the 5-pound weights onto the wrists or ankles.

When walking or running, adding weights to the wrists or ankles is an ideal way to increase workout intensity or add an upper body workout to a lower body program. The Cathe Ergo Wing Ankle / Wrist Weights simply strap onto the body with Velcro and stay in place during the workout. The official website for the product claims one size fits most people, but that simply means some people will fit the weights and others will not. There is no specific measurement provided for the weights, so the dieter needs to contact the company before placing an order.
There is not diet plan or fitness plan associated with the Cathe Ergo Wing Ankle / Wrist Weights, so the dieter needs to find a workout plan to incorporate the weights.
