Would you wear ankle weights to get/keep in shape when doing housework?

I've got "Wife Swap" on tv and the one mom does this. Quite frankly I kinda like the idea. Not for any "sex appeal" or anything, just because I like using weights here and there. It's something I view as "fun"!

  • If I had ankle weights lying around, yeah, I might try that. I would not go out and BUY ankle weights just to do that though. I prefer to put on my audio books or music while I do house work. I figure that hey, doing the actual housework is more physically active than not doing it.

  • You have to really be careful with ankle weights, because they put extra stress on your joints.
