wrist weights for micro-loading?


Has anyone tried wrist weights for micro-loading? I have Cathe's 2 lb gloves, but find that I can't swap the weights out quickly since it's a pretty tight fit. I usually leave 1 lb in each glove and just make 1 lb adjustments. Trying to add more weight usually requires me to pause the workout. I'm trying to find a way to add more weight and am considering wrist weights. The ones I'm looking at allow for adjusting between 1 to 5 pounds. Any other suggestions?



I have a pair of 0.5kg (1.1lb) and 1kg (2.2lb) wrist weights that I use. I find I can usually hold the wrist weight with the velcro strap part in the palm of my hand and the bulky weight part across the back of my hand and this allows me to hold the dumbbell or barbell as well. This saves me time rather than trying to get the weights wrapped around my wrists.


I use adjustable ankle/wrist wts. I know ahead of time the weights I'll need. I have 1-5lbs I can add.
