A friend encouraged me to get started by lending me an old pair of wrist weights with half the black sand missing. After about a week I saw how they might help but I needed a better pair where the sand would not leak out. I tried to repair them but finally gave up and started from scratch.
Here then is an easy way to make your own wrist and ankle weights. After you have the materials it only takes a few minutes to put them together.
They are super comfortable too, unlike the fabric, sand filled weights. They are so comfortable in fact, I can wear them when I go to sleep and even when I take a shower.
Step 1: Materials and tools
First you'll need an old bicycle tube.
Second you'll need two 1 lb packages of 2oz sinker weights.
Third you'll need a package of heavy duty snaps.
Forth, some synthetic (nylon) diamond braid twine
So are the tools
First , a pair of shears.
Second, a small tack hammer.
