This best-selling book is out of print and it’s the single best fitness cardiovascular endurance book ever written.

But, if you’re lucky you can find a used copy for under $20 off of Amazon.

Here’s what one user posted on Amazon.

“This is the single best fitness, cardiovascular endurance book ever written!

That is a sweeping statement, but after over 20 years of using the Heavy Hands® system, I can say it with conviction.

Heavyhands can benefit any athlete or fitness enthusiast.

And it can be used regardless of your initial level of conditioning with great results (if systematically applied).

I first became familiar with Heavyhands in the 80’s and was amazed that Amazon found and offered this book.

If you want to read the true secrets of cardiovascular conditioning and body composition control, this is the book for you.

It is the very best there is!”

Running, Swimming, Bicycling VS Weighted Hands . . .

Nothing beats this
There are other aerobic activities like running, swimming, bicycling, cross country skiing, but I believe Weighted Hands has advantages over the rest.

Weighted Hands is the only aerobic activity that offers a minimal chance for injury, requires little equipment and gives a total body workout.

Not only does running do nothing to develop the upper body, but running injuries are very common, partially because the running motion delivers a joke to the joints roughly equal to three times one’s body weight.

In our Weighted Hands training, you simply walk with your hands . . . “Weighted”.

Each week, you’ll progress to more and more weight in each hand.

As a result, there is considerably less force placed on your bodies joints, particularly the knees and hips since the speed at which you transfer your weight from one foot to another is substantially slower than running, and your feet remain closer to the ground.

While swimming, bicycling and cross country skiing also give excellent aerobic workouts, with few entries, swimming requires the presence of a pool or body of water, bicycling requires a bicycle and dealing with traffic, and cross country skiing isn’t possible year-round.

The greatest benefit of Weighted Hands is that anyone can do it, anywhere, with almost no risk of injury, and they can do it year-round without expensive equipment.

Senoff who is 50, walks pumping 11 1/2 lb Weighted Hands three to four miles, four to five times per week.

He says . .  “I do it because once conditioned, it’s easy.  I can work my entire body out, get aerobically conditioned and keep my upper body looking good and strong.

But the hidden reason I do it is because I can continue to eat whatever I want.”

We manufacture and market a line of updated and re-engineered weighted hands training aids for rapid fat reduction and strength endurance for walkers runners and sports enthusiast.

We invite you to use Weighted Hands in or out of your own home for 14 days.

Thank God For Your Two Hands . . .

Ignorant men don’t know what good they hold in their hands until they’ve flung it away.

We’ve designed aerobic hand weights that work!

But Weighted Hands should not be confused with dumbbells.

One look and feel of our ergonomic grip in your hands will clearly sets Weighted Hands apart from such conventional weights.

Our textured non-slip grip and form fitting back-straps will provide you with maximum comfort over an extended period.

They’ll fit snugly onto your hands.

They don’t have to be gripped as tight so there is no chafing, no straining, no cramps, and no constriction.

You’re going to thank us after just one workout for how functional these grips feel compared to your old 1970s foam coated Heavyhands handles. Kiss wrist, elbow, and joint pain goodbye when you switch to the Grip Without Slip.

Weighted Hands vs. Dumbbells . . .

What’s the deal?

Why can’t one walk with just plain old dumbbells and or wrist weights for an extended amount of time?

They are less money than Weighted Hands.

It’s a good question and one that was answered best by Dr. Lenard Schwartz.

Here is a modified version of his explanation taken from him 1980 patent application.

He states . . .

“Aerobic exercises by their very nature is prolonged in duration, frequently extending over periods more than an hour.

Thus, the limiting factor of gripping power is very real and significant in regards to maximizing one’s aerobic efforts.

Wrist weights have been proposed. However, the effective lever arm is lengthened by placing the weights in or on the hands.

Moreover, the comfort factor is a genuine consideration, for wrist weights are frequently uncomfortable and tend to chafe the skin.

Weighted gloves are a highly adequate means of adding the desired weight for aerobic exercise, but are limited by inherent practicalities of glove size and comfort.

For a hand weight or dumbbells to be practical for use in aerobic exercises, it must meet the following criterion:

1) Capable of supporting an exercise of long duration.

2) Prevent undue spasm of the arm and hand musculature by a soft, yet firm hand engaging means extending over the back of the hand

3) Capable of releasing the hand muscles from the necessity and burden of gripping a dumbbell shaft continuously, so as to promote optimal circulation of blood, reduce the likelihood of untoward elevation of blood pressure, and promote prolonged exercise

4) Be able to support the continuation of very rapid arm movements of extreme amplitude, including a succession of abrupt starts and stops which would be traumatic to skin, muscles, ligaments and joint structure of the hand if not protected

5) Permits the user to determine his pulse count without removing the weight from the hand

6) Suitable for all ambulatory exercises involving both arms and legs, such as walking and running

7) Ensure the safe use of the dumbbell during exercise in which the hands attain an inordinately high velocity. During such use, the force involved tends to cause the weight to be disengaged from the gripping hand, thus increasing the exerciser’s concern and effort, and diminishing their freedom of motion

Weighted Hands handles are highly satisfactory for use in aerobic exercises and fulfill all of the other requirements.

Its form is such that the hand can be relaxed periodically and the constant isometric contraction of the hand and forearm muscles, which is a severe limit in prolonged exercise with dumbbells, is reduced markedly.

This relaxation serves to increase the blood flow to the gripping fingers and to substantially reduce the likelihood of a muscle spasm which frequently aborts such exercises prematurely when using conventional dumbbells and weights.

The handle portion of the Weighted Hand handle is contoured to conform generally to the shape of a user’s hand and fingers when in the gripping position.

This provides a self-adjustment not available in any dumbbell, and the hand can remain partially relaxed during aerobic exercises.”

In this position, the hand weight will be held in hand with the fingers relaxed so that its use is not dependent in any way upon the continuous strength of the user’s grip.

A textured surface aids in the gripping action of the hand weight in the hand of the user.

And the grip does not get slippery after sweating.

If your hands start to sweat while holding dumbbells, you will have to work harder to avoid slippage.

Weighted Hands are expensive compared to regular dumbbells.

If you buy them, you will never have to buy another set unless you lose them.

Weighted Hands are a tool.

It’s one you can use to get in the best shape of your life.

One you can build you upper body and aerobic conditioning.

And one that is essentially a time multiplier for burning fat.

It’s up to you what you do with them.

The Difference Between HeavyHands And Kettle Bells (And When To Use Each) . . .

Thor is a personal trainer who first discovered HeavyHands in the early 2000s.

He says there’s a huge difference between HeavyHands and kettle bells, but it basically comes down to knowing your fitness goals.

If your goal is to increase muscle mass while spending less time in the weight room, Thor says kettle bells are the way to go.

But if you’re a runner looking to increase speed, strength, and endurance, he recommends HeavyHands.

And in this audio, you’ll hear all about the difference between the two – and the workouts that’ll help you meet your goals the quickest.

You’ll Also Hear . . .

* A look at how Thor uses HeavyHands in his daily workout sessions to have more energy and feel better

* A quick guide to the weights and repetitions for a HeavyHands workout along with how to swing them right in order to get their maximum benefits.

* The truth about kettle bells and injuries (Thor says you really have to be careful), but he’s never known anyone to get injured with HeavyHands

* What Thor has noticed about the new rubber handles vs. the old foam ones

Thor says he wishes he’d have found HeavyHands 20 years sooner because they’re a great way to tone up while building endurance and strength at the same time. And in this audio, you’ll hear all about it.

Psychoanalyst’s answer to aerobic exercise is his own ‘Heavyhands’

Psychoanalyst’s answer to aerobic exercise is his own ‘Heavyhands’

THE GETTYSBURG TIMES, SATURDAY, AUGUST 28, 1982

Pittsburgh (AP) – Psychoanalyst Leonard Schwartz beckons his patients to come in and sit down, then to get up with weights and run around – therapy he prescribes to build the body and massage the mind.

By clutching small barbells as they run, his patients strengthen their arms as well as their legs and develop better self-images.

“I see not only parallels between mind and body, I consider mind and body one,” said Schwartz, 57, who claims his new exercise program, “Heavyhands,” makes followers look and feel better.

Until he was 49, Schwartz avoided strenuous exercise. He carried 147 pounds on his 5-foot-7 frame, suffered from high blood pressure and smoked several packs of cigarettes a day.

One day he decided his body needed help.

“I started running and I built a swimming pool,” he said. “I started all those aerobic schticks.”

“That was all self-serving, narcissistic business. I was concerned only about my own body and my wife’s. Then I started thinking about it more as a physician than as a mere consumer of exercise.”

Schwartz discovered the secret was to clutch small weights in each hand while he ran, danced or simply touched his toes.

“It’s an over-kill philosophy,” he said. “You heavy the hands to make them light.”

To further develop his upper torso, Schwartz began modifying the exercise, swinging his weighted hands higher and higher, again and again.

“I need a comprehensive exercise…I wanted a form of exercise that incorporated more of the fitness factors than any other system did,” he said.

After a few years of almost daily workouts, Schwartz’ weight dropped to a muscular 132 pounds.

His resting pulse rate shrunk from 80 to 38 a minute, and his oxygen-consumption rate more than doubled.

Every part of this body improved, something no other aerobic exercise ever accomplished, Schwartz said.

“ ‘Heavyhands’ is an endurance dominated, or aerobic exercise like all the others. But it’s a combined form of exercise – the simultaneous use of four limbs and the trunk. There’s a terrific emphasis on the upper extremities, which have been neglected historically, even in swimming,” he said.

Better than jogging, dancing, cross-country skiing, and swimming?

“It’s the best exercise in the world,” he said. “Before swimming was as good as running, which was as good as rope jumping. But that’s all changed with ‘Heavyhands.’

“There is no belly or back aerobics besides ‘Heavyhands.’ Since there are 75 million people in the country with back problems, I thought I had to address that problem.”

More calories are lost, as less effort is exerted, according to Schwartz. And anyone who is reasonably healthy – young or old – can follow the program, he said.

Joggers lose about 10 to 15 calories per minute while running; that can climb to 20 calories per minute while walking and swinging their weighted hands, Schwartz said.

It’s not that other forms of exercise aren’t good – they’re just not as good, according to Schwartz.

Although between 75 million and 135 million Americans profess to exercise, not more than 3 percent or 4 percent of them actually are fit “in the ultimate sense,” Schwartz said.

“The Jane Fondas, the Richard Simmons, are really doing a lot to raise national consciousness about the issue of movement and activity and health,” he said. “Mine is more research-oriented. It’s based on myself and other subjects…anybody I can get into the laboratory.”

So far, Schwartz has taught his family, friends and colleagues how to exercise the “Heavyhands” way. He’s held exercise sessions at Montefiore Hospital, where he is chief of the psychiatric division, and at home for the elderly. And he’s organized a short daily run – with weights – through his neighborhood.

Interest has swelled since his book on the subject, entitled “Heavyhands,” was released in May. He’s appeared on television and radio programs and has been featured in national magazines.

This fall, he’s considering teaching “Heavyhands” to athletes at Iowa State University.

He hopes to use profits from his book and a set of weights he’s designed – padded barbells that cling to the hand – to establish a large laboratory where he can perfect the method.

Schwartz considers “Heavyhands” a lifestyle.

“It’s difficult to understand how anybody with the option to exercise could abandon that option,” said Schwartz, who sets aside four hours a week for “Heavyhands.”

“When I know I can run 10 or 12 flights of stairs without any difficulty at all, or if I can run 19 miles pumping a couple of 8-pound weights all the way, anything less than that seems to be substandard.

“But I wasn’t always that way.

So it’s obvious anyone can convert.”

End.

Thankfully entrepreneur Michael Senoff of www.WeightedHands.com began producing replacement weights and also specialized ergonomic handles for “HeavyHands” exercise, the prospects for finding new equipment were virtually nill.

Now, thanks to Senoff, the HeavyHands enthusiast can progress from the smallest weights used at the beginning to the heavier weights required for maximum strength endurance development.

Finally, people are able to progress as far as they want using HeavyHands.

Once again, Dr. Schwartz’ proven methods are helping a new generation of exercise and weight loss enthusiasts.
