Wellness Tip
Hand Weights
Should you swing hand weights while walking? Experts disagree, but in the interests of safety, it is probably better not to use them. Gripping the weights while walking can increase blood pressure. They can also increase the strain on arm and shoulder muscles, and ligaments. If you decide to use weights anyway, swing smoothly, keep the weights under good control and limit the weights to no more than 3 pounds.
