How To Swim Faster By Training with Aqua Power Ankle and Wrist Weights

July 21st, 2009 · 3 Comments ·


For swimmers who want to practice harder, now you may want to try these gadgets – Aqua Power Ankle and Wrist Weights. They will be make your routine swimming more challenging.

These weights come with five one-pound steel weight for each side. These weights are covered in waterproof yellow vinyl. You can choose the right weight and add or remove easily. As a start, one should start with light weight before progressing with heavier loads. In fact, I suggest you to hold on to the edge of the pool and kick with the ankle weight. Once you are more comfortable, you should then try swimming with the ankle weight. Then, put on wrist weight. As you practice more, you can slowly increase the weights.



In addition to swimming, these weights can also be used for water aerobics, aquatic jogging and therapy.

    I might have found a Christmas present that I actually want!

    (Admittedly, I actually need some new socks and jocks…but I’d rather have the weights).

    I thought you train to swim faster with hand-pedals to increase water resistance?

    This weight just pulls you down the water instead. I guess it’s more for pool/underwater runs.

    imho, weights attached to bodies can be helpful to increase strength as your body will try harder to stay afloat.

    Some of us swimmers, tied a weight plate using bicycle tube to the waist and swim with it. I have not tried that method though since I am swimming in the public pool. During college time, we have the resources to do that.
