FeetUp Trainer Ankle Weights | Core Strength Exercises
This was my first time getting on the FeetUp Trainer with ankle weights. I had no idea what I wanted to do, so I listened to my body. Starting out with leg extensions seemed like a comfortable way of introducing the new challenge of added weight in the inversion.
Once I did 10 leg extensions, I felt confident enough to do leg presses. Oh boy, these 2-lbs. ankle weights on each leg never felt heavier than they did in this moment! 10 leg presses were enough to feel it in my legs, but did not exhaust me to the point where I needed to call it quits.
I did want to do one more exercise to increase the level of challenge, so I went with single leg lifts…or in this case since I’m inverted, would it be called single leg lowers? I loved this! It required stabilization of one leg, while controlling the movement and range of motion of the other leg. Plus, it was a delicious hamstring stretch at the same time!

ABOUT MY ANKLE WEIGHTS
Great for barre and yoga sculpt workouts!These are way more comfortable than other ankle weights because the weight is on the sides only, instead of all the way around. Additionally, these weights have the velcro closure just at the end, not the velcro strap you thread through the buckle and pull tight to get a secure fit. Two pounds each, so the set of 2 equals four pounds. Perfect for doing barre and yoga sculpt.
I wrote this review on April 27, 2020 so it was before I even started using my FeetUp Trainer. After today’s workout, I would edit it to add “Great for barre, yoga sculpt AND FeetUp Trainer workouts!”
