    Argos is probably your best bet

    I hear the IFSA are looking to use the 2.5k ones instead of cylinders in this years WSM farmers walk[:p]

    im after some 10kgs to wear on my ankles for work and generaly moving around. i used to use them back in the day when x-country running so it gave my legs some good strength but they were only 5kgs.

    Martial arts suppliers will do the heaviest ones and they will be great quality with removable iron bars so you can vary the wieght.

    I would be very careful about wearing ankle weights when running. It puts a vast strain on your joints from the increaed impact

    You will find them more comfartable than the little 2kg ones from argos. These baby go up to 10 kg if i remember. Me and my mate used to wear ankle wieghts for a day at a time then take them off and go running and stuff cos you feel floaty light!

    suggy i know what your sayin bro. i made that mistake the first time round lol. so i started to wear them through the day and then slowly introduced longer and longer jogging distance. it works well if its done right. helps with your overall leg tone and does make you feel like your running when you first take em off lol.

    DO NOT wear ankle weights whilst running. it is not good for you as suggy said. and i would advise aginst wearing them for long periods of time. personally i don't think they have any use outside MA.
