Bala Bangles 0.9kg/1lb Wrist and Ankle Weights

Add these simple yet effective wrists and ankle weights to your workouts or throughout the day to add some resistance to everyday tasks and build some definition in your muscles, without even trying!

The 1-pound weight is perfect for effectively toning, whilst being easy to store due to the small size and causing little interference with everyday activities. The low weight is also less damaging to your joints, as heavier weights can put intense strain on your wrists, elbows, knees and ankles. 

On your wrists, the added weight can help you burn up to 15% more calories and boost your heart rate by 5 to 10 beats per minute, whilst toning the biceps, triceps and shoulders. When worn on your ankles, the weights can burn up to 10% more calories and cause an increase in your oxygen uptake. Walking or running with these on will make your calves, glutes, quadriceps and hamstrings work harder and burn more calories, whilst increasing your overall endurance and enhancing pulmonary and cardiovascular health.

Add these to workouts to increase the challenge and choose from the range of colours with a uniquely chic style. Wear these on your daily walks and carry them in your stylish mesh case when they are not in use.

Mini Home Gym: Push Up Board, Ab Wheel, and Adjustable Skipping Rope

Work out your entire body with this excellent value for money piece of equipment! The colour coded push up board comes with non-slip handgrips for push-ups, an ab roller and a professional speed skipping rope which will tone every major muscle in your body.

Build your upper body muscles targeting your chest, back, shoulders and arms with the press up feature and enjoy the variations of exercises you can do with the resistance bands to exercise your upper and lower body. Finish off your session with an intense ab workout using the wheel roller, which will tone and build strength in your abdomen. Burn 10-16 calories per minute in a challenging cardio workout which is more effective than running, using the steel adjustable speed rope, to shed fat and sculpt your body.

All packed into one box, you will find 1 push up board, 2 sweat resistant handles, 2 resistance bands with handles, 20 non-slip pads, 1 ab roller wheel and 1 professional speed rope – all of which you can take anywhere with you and store away neatly in your home.

Push-ups can burn at least 7 calories per minute, whilst the use of resistance bands vary depending on the resistance level, the weight of the person and the duration of the workout. This can be calculated by using the formula: Kilocalories = MET (the measure of metabolic activity, e.g., intensity of exercise) x weight in kilograms x duration in hours.

The ab roller can burn up to 54 calories if performed at a moderate pace for 10 minutes by a person at 160 pounds. The speed rope will allow someone at 100 pounds to burn 500 calories per hour, whereas someone at 200 pounds can burn up to 1,000 calories per hour!
