When gyms closed and we all started working out at home, there were a few home gym essentials we needed to stock up on. I like Pilates and low-impact, sculpting workouts, and in my classes we used ankle weights a lot, so I knew I needed to pick up some of those. If you’ve been on Instagram, you’ve probably seen the Bala Bangles ($49), the one pound ankle and wrist weights that are minimal and cute. They’ve been insanely in demand since we all switched to at-home workouts; we’re talking two-month-wait-list in demand. But, I found them in stock at Carbon38, so run, don’t walk, and buy them while you can.
I love these weights because they’re super easy to put on and adjust. They’re comfortable, and they make me feel like I can take on the world — or my hour-long Pilates class. I’ve also worn them on walks around my neighborhood for a little extra burn. The one pound is great because it’s enough weight to feel something, while being light enough to maintain for a full workout. If you’re going to add some weights to your workout, I’d pick these bangles. Grab them while you can, and then snap a sweaty selfie.
