Is there a mandatory retirement rule in the NBA?

I don't know that they're too bad unless you use ones that are too heavy. They don't really do much in terms of your ankle other than add weight. I used to use 5 lb ones (I'm a volleyball player) and I haven't felt any adverse effects. Though the effects are somewhat temporary, I've noticed, you lose the hops after a couple of weeks if you stop using it.


You have to trust your own instincts. The thing is, go with very light weights and don't wear them twenty four hours. Don't strain your body.
