Weighted clothing is the adding of weight to various parts of the body through attaching weighted pieces to the body which leave the hands free to grasp. Unlike with held weights or machines, the user is generally more apt for normal movement.
The use of ankle weights is widely used as one of many forms of resistance training.
In addition to the greater effect of gravity on the person, it also adds resistance during workouts, due to more force needed to overcome the inertia of heavier masses, as well as a greater momentum that needs deceleration at the end of the movement to avoid injury. The method may increase muscle mass. It is normally done in the form of small weights, attached to to the body/ankle, to increase endurance when performed in long repetitive events, such as running, swimming, punching, kicking or jumping. Ankle weights can also be used for slow, controlled movements, and as a way to add resistance to body weight exercises.
