Along with ankle weights, wrist weights are useful options for your workout routine. They are weighted and wide straps that can be worn around your wrists. You can put them on during a walk or a cardio exercise to boost intensity. Also, these devices can help you target muscles that cannot be worked with a dumbbell due to a weak grip from a stroke or arthritis. In general, wrist weights can be suitable for arm exercises and shoulder exercises, such as rows or biceps curls.
