Hand weights can be used for Tabata and Pilates. I will be introducing them into classes very soon.
There are two places to get your hand weights from at the moment. They do sell out very quickly so it’s best to check online first. You can get delivery if you wish.
Argos has a pair of 1kg weights for £5.99, 2kg for £5.99
Decathlon has a pair og 0.5 kg for 2.99. 1kg for £4.99. 1.5kg for £6.99, 2kg for £9.99
I am using 1.5 kg but do find these quite tough for arm exercises. I will be using 1kg when I remember to bring them back from my locker at work!
