Kensui Ankr plate loaded ankle weights

Next level ankle weights

Oh, my friends, let's take a moment to dive into the world of Kensui's ANKR, the sterling Cadillac of ankle weights, a titanic testament to human willpower and its pursuit of athletic prowess. These bad boys aren't your standard, ho-hum, weight-inflexible ankle weights. No, these are adjustable beasts, malleable to your every whim, every desire, and every muscle-challenging need.

With two versions on offer, the ANKR Pro and the ANKR Max, they represent the twin faces of Janus, looking both ways at once. The former can bear up to 45lbs of metallic burdens, while the Max endures the herculean load of 200lbs. Should you yearn for more, extension sleeves stand ready, the stoic companions for those unafraid to add even more weight, even more challenge. And if you seek to mimic the coordinated symphony of bilateral movements, connect two ANKR Maxes, and dance with gravity in synchrony. Though, bear in mind, like the singular star in the night sky, each ANKR is sold individually, not as a pair.

One facet where the ANKR pulls ahead from the pack is its compatibility. Choose between the goliaths of Olympic weight plates or the widely used 1″ plate, and embark on a journey through a plethora of exercises that this tool allows. Fancy a leg extension? Check. Or a challenging round of mountain climbers? Done. And let's not forget the classic kickbacks and leg raises. The ANKR accommodates all, like a multi-linguist speaking the dialects of various exercises fluently.

However, no masterpiece is without its caveat, for our ANKR is not meant for tib raises. Also, be aware that they're not designed for running. But beyond this, the ANKR opens a door to an arena of possibilities. It's sturdily built, much like the towering monuments of old that stand against the test of time. Yes, it's a bit of an investment, but one that promises returns in the form of increased muscle strength and amplified athleticism.

The ANKR isn't just a fitness tool, it's a promise of quality. With vegan leather padding for comfort, premium cam buckles for swift and easy usability, rubber-lined bottoms for damage prevention, and removable sleeves for weight plate adjustments, it's an architectural marvel in the realm of workout gear. The ANKR Pro is a marvel of portability, just about the size of your smartphone, and a light breeze at just 0.6 lbs. It can effortlessly accompany you in your gym bag on your global adventures.

So, if you're in search of a versatile, adjustable, and reliable addition to your training regime, whether at home, at the gym, or on the road, the ANKR could be your next go-to. Not only will it upgrade your leg day, it'll offer a whole new dimension to your workout routine. The Kensui ANKR is not just a piece of equipment, it's a game changer, a personal trainer attached to your ankles, constantly challenging and pushing you to reach your maximum potential.

As with any fitness equipment, the Kensui ANKR has its advantages and disadvantages. Let's delve into them:


  1. Weight adjustability: The ANKR offers exceptional flexibility, allowing you to modify the weight as per your training needs.
  2. Versatility: The ANKR supports a broad range of exercises, which means you can target multiple muscle groups with one device.
  3. Build quality: The ANKR is solidly constructed, promising durability and reliability over time.
  4. Plate compatibility: You have the freedom to use either Olympic weight plates or the more common 1” plates, which adds to its versatility.
  5. Portable and Travel Friendly: Especially with the ANKR Pro, its compact size allows for easy packing and travel.


  1. Sold individually: Some users might prefer a pair, but the ANKR is sold individually. This could lead to additional cost if you want one for each leg.
  2. Not suited for running or tib raises: The ANKR is not designed for specific exercises like running or tib raises.
  3. Potentially heavy weight: The ANKR Max, which can hold up to 200lbs, might be excessive for some users and could potentially risk injury if not used correctly.
  4. Price: The ANKR is a bit of an investment compared to other ankle weights on the market.
  5. Comfort: While it does have vegan leather padding, the comfort level may vary based on individual preferences and the amount of weight added.

As always, it's crucial to consider these factors in the context of your specific fitness goals and requirements. The ANKR seems to be a well-rounded product, but one must exercise caution, especially when loading heavy weights.
