Right now, we’re all digging under the mountain of holiday cookies and goodies we’ve devoured over the past few months. If you’re thinking about getting a head start on your beach body, we’re going to let you in on a celebrity secret for toned legs that also happen to be winter-friendly: ankle weights. In fact, Halle Berry has her own line of ankle weights from Respin that you can get on Amazon — and they’re only $11.

I know what you’re thinking: these seem like a great addition to your walks. While wrist and ankle weights add resistance to help you work your muscles harder (read: burn more calories!), experts at Harvard Medical School say that walking and doing aerobic exercise with weights ankles can cause muscle imbalance. You can use ankle weights for other workouts, though, and if you want to add resistance to your walks, they suggest wearing a weighted vest unless you have neck issues.

If you want sculpted legs like Halle Berry, adding ankle weights to your regular indoor workouts increases resistance. The moon fall The star posted a video of her workout which included lifting and lowering her son into his ankle weights.

Halle Berry isn’t the only celebrity burning her legs with ankle weights. Kate Hudson is another fan. She relies on ankle weights for a bit more resistance with her Pilates routine, which isn’t typical.

“Kate just likes to put them on sometimes to switch things up,” said Hudson’s Pilates instructor Nicole Stuart. Self. She says the added ankle weights make it “a little heavier and harder” on your lower body. This set from Healthymodellife is similar to Kate’s weights.

Just before the pandemic, Bala Bangles was funded on an episode of shark tank. Investors were really excited about them, and when the lockdown started, buyers got excited about them too – they’re often out of stock. Even Victoria Beckham put them on her Christmas list.

“I love working out,” she said ES magazine. “I work out every day. These Bala bracelets are a great addition to your routine.”

PS: Hailey Bieber is also a fan.
