1 pound each or 1/2 pounds each - Open Palm Hand Weights
I received these hand weights today and they are great! Thank you for adding the different weights. The Jr. Knuckle Irons were a little small for some of the children I work with. I think this size should be good for children 8yrs and up, however for 8yrs they may be too heavy unless already conditioned for them with a previous pair like the Jr's. Perhaps not (weight wise), just a caution in slow integration usage. Ie: 1/2hr for a few days 1 hr for another few days, not slinging them around ext...until they are used to them. As with any weights caution and proper use must be taught.
Knuckle Irons™ are the ultimate open palm hand weights.
IRONWEAR ™’s patented design provides features unmatched
by any other weight. The unique design provides padding to the
palm area like a weight lifting glove, but leaves the hand open to
hold other things. You can workout or play sports while wearing
these hand weights.
Knuckle Irons™ do not put stress on the fingers or thumb.
Other open palm weights put stress between the fingers and
thumb, and they leave the area between the fingers
open so they do not affect the use of your fingers.
Knuckle Irons™ in addition to increasing your arm strength and
speed, cause your heart to pump more blood to a larger number of
muscle groups during aerobic exercises and therefore can help to
improve cardiovascular condition, increase stamina, and weight loss.
Knuckle Irons™ have a single piece of IRONWEAR ™’s
patented Flex-metal™ over the knuckles. The weight moves
and flexes with your fingers. The weights does not sag, bulge, shake
or spill out like weights made of sand or metal shot. The weights act
like padding and do not bruise, chafe, or block your movements as
do weights made of metal bars.
Knuckle Irons™ are held securely in place with three adjustable
straps: one on the palm and two on the wrist. The unique adjustment
straps system allows the weight to fit properly on any size hand.
The thin padded open palm permits complete use of the hand and
fingers, and allows a tight fist to be formed or the hand to hold
objects without interference.
Knuckle Irons™ because of their open palm and finger design
are the preferred hand weight for training for sports that require
complete use of the hands like golf, tennis, basketball, bowling,
paint ball, and hockey.
Knuckle Irons™ are also selected by those who need to make
a tight fist or grab other items while training, including many doing
running, aerobics, boxing training, karate, and kickboxing.
No other hand weights measure up to IRONWEAR ™’s
patented Knuckle Irons™.
Knuckle Irons™ Champion Series are covered by an
abrasion resistant padded nylon fabric for maximum durability
and are easy to wash.
Knuckle Irons™ are available in 1 pound per hand
(2 pound pair) or in 1/2 pound per hand (1 pound pair) and may be worn with Wrist Irons™ or
Ankle Wrist Irons™for added weight.
