Ankle weights work by adding a constant but comfortable resistance to your workout, making your muscles work harder during even the most simple of moves – take a leg raise for example.

Adding an ankle weight to a leg raise intensifies it for better toning and they can be used in all kinds of workouts, from yoga to aerobics, boxing, pilates and walking.

Ankle weights are also handy if you’re recovering from an injury, as they can be used to strengthen during rehab.

Halle Berry and model Vogue Williams regularly add them to their exercises too, while Hailey Bieber uses them during donkey kicks to tone her glutes.

Actress Kate Hudson adds ankle weights to her Pilates sessions too, with her trainer Nicole Stuart telling Self: "Ankle weights are a great way to change things up and work your lower [body] more. Kate just likes to throw them on sometimes to switch things up."
