STATIC OR DYNAMIC?
When training, you have the choice between dynamic and static movements (where the feet do not move).
Both practical and adjustable, these soft dumbbells for ankles and wrists are perfect for dynamic movements like leg extensions.
As for static movements like squats or lateral arm raises, dumbbells are recommended. They are easy to hold in hand and will help you stay balanced.
What does "getting toned" mean?
A toning centric workout focuses on firming your muscles. In other words, by doing exercises that use your muscles (with or without weight), you tone and grow them.
As designers of fitness equipment and as athletes ourselves, we strongly encourage you to get toned as it can help you feel better in your body and make it easier for you to navigate the world in your daily life: because muscled arms can always carry more grocery bags! ;)
Who can get toned?
Great news: everyone can get toned, no matter their age (begin happy dance!). That's because this type of training can be adapted to everyone. You just adjust the weight you're using, the number of reps, or even the intensity and frequency of your training. Plus, you can easily train at home.
Muscle toning is right at your finger tips!
