This of course will make your body fitter and stronger. These will help you tone and shape your legs and butt muses. They are great for ab workouts as well. They provide a greater cardiovascular benefit when exercising, and help increase muscle strength and bone density. Plus, you will burn more calories with these weights added to your own body weight.

The possible negative side of using this fitness gear is the increased risk of joint stress and muscle an joint strains and injuries. Not recommended for overweight people, as well as too frail people and those suffering from joint pain.
