Thanks for the responses. I had read, years ago, that ankle weights can wreak havoc on the knee cartilage. I believe it was in a book by Callan Pinckney where she discouraged using weights while walking. I figured it they were placed higher on the body, it may be a "sculpting tool."
Anyhow, unless there was a deluge of responses praising the results one could obtain from using this, it feels less than a desirable prop today. I'm feeling that this may be a bit gimmicky for my taste.
I guess nothing replaces just getting out there putting in the time and doing the miles.
Everyone take care,
