I bought ankle weights today and did a little fielding with my friend. Then I went in the cage and pitched a little with my windup with the ankle weights on still. I took them off and felt like my feet weren’t even touching the ground. Does this sound like a good workout in a way?
I wouldn’t use ankle weights just because they tend to mess up people’s ankles and knees. If you want to juice your legs a little more, just do more plyometric work in the gym.
Ankle weights can enhance some workouts, but they are horrible on your joints. Best to leave them alone man. Your knees dont need anymore torture than they already get.
You’re both right. I did feel a little tension in my knees today and knew that it was from wearing those ankle weights. I’ll use them for walking and lunges and calf raises, stuff like that.
