I had an interesting visit to a sports shop yesterday.
I was looking for some light wrist weights to exercize my upper body more in my Zumba workout. Found some and picked up the box thinking “This is a bit heavy” but I couldn’t see any others on display so I asked the girl behind the desk and she said “We do heavier ones than 500 g each (1 lb) but this is the lightest pair.” The look on her face suggested she thought I wasn’t serious.
I therefore gave this up as a bad job and decided to look online, but 500 g apiece is indeed the lightest weight out there. I didn’t think I was a weakling, but if I went for a whole hour of Zumba wearing 500 g weights I would do myself an injury!
Has anybody else encountered this situation, and if so, what is the solution, because with my tiny hands I’m not going to get any stronger without weights?
