Valeo Adjustable Ankle/Wrist Weight Review
Available at Amazon Check Price Now!
I bought this product after searching on ebay, and many other sites. There was only one other company that sold adjustable combined 20 pd total weights, and I only saw 2 reviews for that, compared to the Valeo brand same item, which had a number of reviews. Overall I love mine. They must have made the plastic covering the weights, from a sturdier material because it definately looks durable, but I still won’t manhandle it too much. I did wiggle the weights into their slots, as was mentioned by another reviewer and it slipped in easy. It’s also very easy to take in and out of the slots. I am 5 ft 10 in, and weight 170, so yes, the weights do look extremely large and bulky on your ankles, but I don’t care, I didn’t buy it for style. I knew how to adjust it around my ankles when I got mine, and after I changed the weights to 6 pds each, I figured out how to wrap them as tight as possible around my leg. Yes it does slip down from your lower shin and sits on your ankles and the top of your feet, but if your wearing socks and sneakers, you should be fine (might hurt after walking in them though, but hey they are weights!) I have yet to buy wrist bands and try to put them around my ankle and then put the weights over that (as suggested by another reviewer)to see if it makes a difference in keeping them up. The velcro is made of tough stuff so it doesn’t look like it will break anytime soon.I have so far walked around my job and my house in them and MAN!! I felt it after a 1/2 hr. So you can definately feel yourself working your legs and stomach muscles a little more. I am now going to try walking a good 2 hrs with them on around a track and see how I feel after that. I will review again in another 2 months see how I feel about them then.
