About XtraEdge Weighted Gloves
It’s not a glove…it’s a faster kick, a stronger arm drive, a smoother stride, calorie burner, time saver, muscle builder, PR maker, rival killer, a better workout…
How many walkers, joggers, and runners get enough upper body strength training? Probably less than 10%. Even high school, college, and elite competitors who regularly lift weights do not do running motion specific exercise. XtraEdge gloves force you to run more efficiently and give you better arm drive.
XtraEdge gloves make even walking a much better workout! They strengthen forearms, triceps, biceps, shoulders, and pectorals while promoting better form! The gloves hold onto you.... you don't have to hold onto them!
Comfortable and versatile with variable weights, the new XtraEdge gloves are made of breathable, flexible, and wickable materials that provide an extremely comfortable fit and dry quickly!
XtraEdge gloves are perfect for people wanting to get more fitness return/benefits from their 15-60 minute aerobic workouts (not to mention burn more calories!). Why not combine two workouts into one? Based on the strength building theory of low weight and high reps, XtraEdge gloves have proven especially effective for endurance athletes and those who don't want to use heavy weights. Try them on for just one workout and feel the difference! Immediate results and measurable gains after just 2 to 4 weeks of usage.
XtraEdge gloves are safe and effective and will improve both your upper body strength and endurance as well as your biomechanics!
XtraEdge took a minimalist approach when designing our weighted gloves. We used the best wicking and breathable materials available that could also support the weights and prevent shifting when running. Your hands stay happy and cool if you are inside on a treadmill or outside on the track. The permanent weight in the top of the glove is a weighted sand so it conforms to your hand. The steel-coated palm weight is removable and designed to fit perfectly in your hand. XtraEdge gloves come in unisex sizes of small, medium and large.
According to the American Council on Exercise, using hand weights while engaging in aerobic activity like walking can boost your heart rate by five to 10 beats per minute and increase oxygen consumption 5 to 15 percent. This increased energy expenditure can help you burn more calories. If you are short on exercise time, combining aerobic and strength-training elements into one workout is convenient.
Increases energy consumption by an average of 200% compared with ordinary walking without hand weights
Consumes approximately 450-600+ calories per hour (compared with 350 calories per hour for normal walking at 3.5 mph)
Hand weights can be worn for relatively long periods, i.e. between 30 minutes and two hours at a time, or in 5-10 minute “exercise bites” throughout the day.
