Long time no see~

Lets go straight into it. What do you know about Leg weights? What are some other benefits besides the increased speed? How does conducting physical attacks work when the weights have been removed?

I know right, good to be back

Leg Weights are a form of training that has the user wear heavy weights on an area of the body they wish to train. The goal is have the user be able to handle the strain of the weights to the point of normalcy whilst wearing them, which causes a massive relief on the body when it it is removed, translating to more powerful strength and speed from the "apparent" lightness of the body. Besides speed boost is the strength, but this only applies to the area receiving the training, so leg based attacks, not anything else like punches. When removed, physical attacks are strengthened and speed increases substantially

Indeed. However, it's important to note that this speed increase only applies to your running speed, not overall movement speed. If you're going to run at an opponent and attack with a punch, you'll have to momentarily slow down to whatever your base/movement speed is as the attack is delivered. In this way when you attack your opponents will still be able to react, though the timing of that reaction might be lessened due to your sudden appearance (If they somehow can't track you). It should also be noted that dropping the weights normally requires a move, but doing so can be used to dodge an incoming technique due to the speed increase you gain. Now with the 1 doge per turn rule, you can dodge one (1) incoming technique as long as you're faster than it. Logic applies here, so be careful what you attempt to dodge. Fireballs you can, but something like Great Majestic Fire Annihilation you cannot due to its range.

keep in mind these are bio-bound.

Now put these on.

*Tosses you a pair of Leg Weights*

( Katai Omori ) - Leg Weights
Type: Weapon/Supplementary
Rank: A
Range: Short
Chakra: 30
Damage: N/A (+20 to Kicks, 2x Running Speed)
Description: The Leg Weights used for Special Taijutsu Training with Added Weights are made through the application of a sealing formula to ordinary leg weights. The sealing formula is used to, through the use of chakra, increase the weight of the leg weights to the desired level. The seal can't be applied to anything other than the leg weights and its use is restricted to its original purpose. One can remove the leg weights but the sealing technique in them stays active indefinitely and can't be released. Additionally, the Leg Weights and their unique seal calibration makes them only usable by the ninja to whom they belong. They can't be sealed or stolen.
