Kim Kardashian is pushing her fitness levels and she recently showed us how. The 39-year-old American media personality gave us a glimpse of her workout session on Instagram.
In the video, Kim is seen brisk walking on the treadmill but with weights tied around her ankles and wrists. Take a look:
The model and businesswoman wore 5 lb (2.26 kg) ankle weights and 2 lb (0.9 kg) wrist weights while doing her cardio workout.
A while ago, we also saw Sunny Leone doing high kicks with ankle weights.
Benefits of ankle and wrist weights
According to livestrong.com, ankle weights are used to make the muscles work harder to do the same motion. It also increases the overall endurance, improving pulmonary and cardiovascular health, while burning calories. Wrist weights, on the other hand, help tackle both aerobic exercise and strength training, mentioned woman.thenest.com. As you do aerobic exercise with wrist weights, it increases oxygen use and calorie burning by approximately five to 15 per cent, as compared to doing the same exercise without weights.
