Doctors Thought Something Wrong . . .

He was 62-year-old and his heart rate was so good doctors thought there could loose him.

Frank has been working out using HeavyHands since the 1980s when he saw Dr. Schwartz on a local newscast demonstrating his aerobic walking hand weights.

The newscast included a phone number for the doctor, so Frank decided to order a set and he’s never looked back.

On a recent visit to Frank’s doctor’s office, doctors were alarmed by how low his heart rate was – 42 beats a minute, unusually good for a man his age.

After running extensive tests, they determined his low heart rate was from years of the type of aerobic exercises he was doing.

And in this quick audio, you’ll hear Frank’s amazing story, exactly what happened when he called Dr. Schwartz, and the kinds of exercises Frank used to get his low heart rate and stay fit using HeavyHands.

You’ll Also Hear . . .

* A look at Frank’s exercise routine – and how he changes up his HeavyHands workout for the worst of weather

* A weird (but effective) way Frank uses a trampoline along with his HeavyHands to modify a running workout after arthritis and a partial knee replacement

* The real problem with exercises like walking on a treadmill or doing a stationary bike – and how adding HeavyHands could solve this once and for all.

Frank says the most important thing to remember when you’re working out is to listen to your body, pace yourself, and have fun.

Frank’s been doing that for more than 30 years with HeavyHands, and in this audio, you’ll hear all about it.

When Ed’s doctor told him to walk at least three miles a day, Ed thought, “Well, what about my arms?”

In a normal walk, your arms aren’t really doing much, and to Ed that seemed like a real waste.

So Ed looked around and discovered HeavyHands.

He says, when he started incorporating them into his walks in October, he weighed about 265.

By January, he was down to 238.

And in this quick audio, you’ll hear how he’s doing it.

You’ll Also Hear…

* The strange thing Ed notices if he puts his walks off now that’s he’s gotten into a routine with HeavyHands

* How many pounds Ed works out with and the specific exercises he adds to his walks using the weights

* Clear and straight-forward advice for anyone starting out

Ed says, like with anything else in life, using HeavyHands gets easier the more you do it.

And it won’t be long before your full-body workout won’t seem like much of a workout at all. You’ll hear all about it in this audio.

70 Year Old Marine Who Gets Ripped With HeavyHands

Zane Hanna is a 70 Year Old Marine who Gets Ripped With HeavyHands.

He’s an ex-marine, body builder, and fireman who’s still going strong at 70 years old.

When Zane was in the military, he used to manage gyms, so he’s done a lot of training and has helped a lot of guys train.

Zane still remembers when he stumbled onto HeavyHands in the 1970s.

He was looking for a way to build his upper body that wasn’t swimming, and he’s never looked back.

Even now he won’t miss his HeavyHands workout for much. He says it’s a nice blend of resistance and aerobic exercise with the side benefit that you’ll get ripped if you do it right.

And in this audio, you’ll hear his inspiring story, along with the workout he does in just one hour that’s helped to keep him in peak shape throughout his life.

You’ll Also Learn

• A little-known fact: Faster isn’t a better workout, and neither is adding more weight. There’s one thing that matters most – “Time under tension” – here’s what that means, and how to incorporate it into your routine

• Everything you need to know about Zane’s one-hour workout: he sets his timer for 30 minutes (so he knows when to turn around and head home), then makes every step count with these core exercises

• The details about how Zane coped with his Type 2 Diabetes diagnosis (caused by Agent Orange exposure in Vietnam), the simple changes he made to his routine that helped him manage the disease – and how he’s done it all without ever having to take insulin

• Exactly why you should never make “losing weight” your exercise goal, what you should be going for instead, and the right way to make that your focus

• The demystifying truth about lactic acid burn and why Zane says you won’t ever get it with HeavyHands

• The one movement Zane sees people with HeavyHands doing wrong and how to make sure you do it right

The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived . . .

Knock it out of the park.

“Curt” Gowdy, an American sportscaster, well known as the longtime “voice” of the Boston Red Sox said . . .

“Ted Williams is the most competent man I’ve ever met in my life.

He’s the best fisherman I’ve ever fished with; he was the best jet pilot, he was the best hitter.

He wanted to be not only good but great at it,”.

He was a left-fielder for the Boston Red Sox, but he wasn’t that great of a fielder.

Then, one day in his ninth season, at the 1950 All-Star Game, Ted crashed into the wall catching Ralph Kiner’s fly-balI into left field.

He hit hard but was still able to make a spectacular catch.

Then, in extra innings, Ted hits a home run to win the game for the American League.

But his arm just doesn’t feel right.

Ted goes to the hospital for an X-ray.

Doctors conclude Ted’s arm is shattered.

Ted had hit a home run with a BROKEN arm.

So when the going gets hard with anything you do, think of Ted and that home run hit.

You can go the extra innings with Heavy Hands.

Heavy Hands are a tool.

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

One you can firm your upper body and aerobic conditioning.

And one that’s essentially your time machine for burning fat.

Walk less, burn more working with four limbs, not just two.

It’s up to you what you do with this tool.

I’ll be taking off for the rest of the day.

It’s your chance to grab more Heavy Hands gear now before I do.

Blubber Busting Extravaganza Interview . . .

Run For Cover . . .

When he was ten years old, his father, started playing golf to help heal an ankle injury.

And young Jack joined in.

By the time he was 13, Jack Nicholas had shot his first round under 70, and he knew his destiny for greatness was going to be on the golf course.

He became the youngest golfer since 1909 to win the US amateur.

In 1960 the 20-year-old entered the US open.

He would go on to win the US Amateur again in 1961.

“The Golden Bear” turn pro in 1962 in that year won the U.S. Open.

Jack Nicholas was always a bit on the heavy side.

Some of the nicknames he’s had throughout his life included

Ohio Fats

Fat Jack

blob-oh

His wife, Barbara “Babs” Nicholas, even called him Fat Boy.

And  in 1960, Sports Illustrated put Nicholas on the cover of the magazine with the headline “One Whale Of A Golfer.”

Being fat is NOT fun.

And no matter how successful you are, it still hurts to be called fat.

And if you’re like me, always battling with your weight, this may be the perfect time to hear my Blubber Busting Extravaganza Interview.

It’s called . . .

How To Lose Weight In Half The Time By Carrying A Gym Around In Your Car

Jerry bought Heavyhands when he was in high school in the late 1970s but never really did anything with them.

Like most people, he got an office job, and life just started taking over.

Fast-forward to now – Jerry realized he weighed 260 lbs with sciatic nerve pain so bad he couldn’t walk.

He knew he needed a change.

So he bought a gym membership and a yoga ball, but because the gym was 20 miles away, he never used it.

And the yoga ball doesn’t do much if crunches are your only exercise.

He remembered about his Heavyhands and was thrilled to find out they were still being manufactured and updated as Weighted Hands.

He bought some ergonomic grips for his old set and had never looked back.

Now, he carries the weights around with him in his car and says he fits in a workout every day because of it.

He’s slowly increasing his weights, and the time he spends walking with them – and is doing it all pain-free.

He hasn’t stepped on a scale yet, but judging by the reaction he’s getting from others, he knows it’s going to be a huge number when he does.

And in this audio, you’ll hear exactly how he’s doing it.

You’ll Also Hear . . .

•  A step-by-step look at how Jerry took himself from out-of-shape and with so much sciatic nerve pain he couldn’t walk – to pain-free and pumping weights

•  The secret behind Weighted Hands that makes it work so well – (it’s a time multiplier). Because you’re using four limbs instead of two, you get twice the workout in half the time by using the principles of pan aerobics.

Here’s what that means and how to make it work for you

•  The unexpected benefits of the new ergonomic grips – they not only fit like a glove, but they also make overhead exercises easier

•  The one diet trick Jerry says is the biggest reason he no longer snacks or eats fast food as much – and he only has to do it once a week

•  An “insider’s” look at the exercise routine Jerry uses now and how having a gym in his car has made all the difference

The best part is – Jerry isn’t on a fad diet.

He’s making real lifestyle changes he’s going to be able to keep up.

He knew he wasn’t going to the gym.

He knew he was leading a sedentary lifestyle.

But now, with the help of Weighted Hands, he’s well on his way to a better second part of life and a healthier him.

And in this audio, you’ll hear how he did it and how you can do it too.

Heavy Hands Make Your Pants Fall Off . . .

I was texting back and forth with one of my new Heavy Hands all stars.

He reports dramatic weight loss results and toning his upper body by walking with Heavy Hands.

He can almost see his six pack under his fat pack.

And he was telling me a story about a guy he saw on TV.

He said there was this guy and he wanted to end his life.

But he did not want to disappoint his family, so he came up with an idea.

He was overweight and utterly depressed.

He decided to give himself a heart attack by running one night.

It didn’t work the 1st night, so he tries harder the second night.

And still no luck.

He tried to induce his fatal heart attack, the third, fourth and fifth night too.

Still no heart attack.

But something started to happen.

He began to feel excellent and soon after that, he decided that he wanted to live and he began to thrive.

As he began to exercise, he experiences a mild euphoria throughout the day.

His depression fog had lifted, and he began to feel happy again.

He began to drop fat, and his pants started to fall off.

He now walked with a pep in his step, and his head held higher than before.

He began to engage with people more and have more eye contact with others.

And people responded to his actions.

I just love this story.

Heavy Hands® is a tool.

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

One you can build your 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.

Heavy Hands can make your pants fall off

Why I Left Behind My Kettle Bells

This e-mail just in from one of my new Weighted Hands customers.

I am passing along this story because what he shares may be something you can relate to.

Hi Michael,

I have been in fitness for a long time holding positions over the years as Physical Education Director for the Royal Military College, and Chief Instructor for the Canadian Forces School of Physical Education and Recreation.

I have done coaching for many more sports and athletic qualifications including years of martial arts training, and power lifting.

So although I’m just an old guy, I was always keen at fitness and the evolution of training methodologies and equipment over the years.

In 2013 I got my 11th orthopedic operation and had both a titanium knee and shoulder replacement in an 8 month time frame resulting in a hard go of getting my old strength back.

In any case, I’ve rehabbed well and can do virtually all the things I did before with some common sense and a few caveats.

Certainly much more than any typical doctor recommendation.

The hard part at this stage of the game is modifying my workouts to avoid the loss of too much muscle mass while maintaining the tone of my musculature and avoiding the nuisance injuries while still working hard enough to overload my systems enough for a good workout day in and day out.

I’ve incorporated Heavyhands off and on for a few years occasionally rotating it into my training regimen and always having a good workout when I did.

This month, I went on my first long vacation (over two weeks) and only brought a few things to workout figuring I would intersperse the gym, swimming and power walking.

I left behind my kettle bells and power wheel and only brought small hand weights and a wall cable system.

On vacation I realized the gym was okay but problematic and time consuming.

While I am 66, I still workout aggressively and not as your typical 66 year old.

I have had a lifetime approach to staying in shape and serious training in most gyms is difficult as they are more of a social scene than real working out.

Also the limitations of machines and specificity training for overall functionality as you age and wish to retain speed and flexibility.

Power walking, a few body exercises and lap swimming were good but I missed a good workout while here so I restarted the heavy hands workouts every other day alternating my other workouts and noticed some good results as well as a good sweat.

I know the methodology is good and physiologically sound but this was the first time I had used it consistently as my core routine, instead of once in a while.

In summary Heavy Hands started out as just a filler exercise while on holidays, but is has given me some impressive workouts/results and I will continue to see where things go over the next few months.

P.S. I have ordered your Weighted Hands kit and add-on weights.

Victor Trnavskis

Lots of simple reasons why walking and training with Weighted Hands may be a good alternative to high impact exercise.

What Exercise To Do After A Knee Injury . . .

Don’t let a knee injury keep you down.

Learn to modify your workout and stay athletic your entire life

Bob used to be an all-around athlete.

He did triathlons, was an avid skier, played tennis and golf.

Then he blew his knee out.

Fortunately, Bob has been working out with HeavyHands since the 1980s.

When he was younger, he says he used them to help him reach his peak athletic shape.

And now that he’s older with knee problems, he uses them to get a full-body workout while he’s walking – without pounding his knee or his back.

And in this audio, you’ll hear how HeavyHands can be a part of your workout throughout your life too – no matter what stage of the game you’re currently in.

You’ll Also Hear . . .

* The one workout Bob says has given him the most definition for his arms – it’s also good for cardio and a great way to lose weight too

How to Use WeightedHands As Your Go-To Workout After Injury Or Even Arthritis . . .

This Man’s Been Doing Heavy Hands For More Than 25 Years

Terry started doing Heavy Hands back in 1978 when he developed arthritis in his two big toe joints and couldn’t run anymore.

He was frustrated because no other workout was helping him keep the weight off like cross-country running.

Then he saw Dr. Schwartz’s book at the store and thought he’d give it a shot.

He immediately noticed muscle definition in his legs and arms similar to what he had when he was running, and he hasn’t looked back.

And in this audio, you’ll hear how easy it is to incorporate Heavy Hands into your fitness routine even after injury or arthritis, and what it’s like to do the Heavy Hand workout for more than 25 years.

You’ll Also Hear . . .

* Exactly what Terry noticed when he quit doing Weighted Hands during the winter months because of the cold – and what he does now to keep Weighted Hands a part of his year-round routine

* A quick look at Terry’s modified workouts: how he incorporates Weighted Hands into his running now along with other exercises he does too

* Exactly how long you need to work out before you see results

* Clear and straightforward advice for anyone starting out

Terry says the increased calorie burn of the Weighted Hands workout has been the only thing remotely similar to the results he got running long distances – but without the strain on his feet or the drive to the gym.

And in this audio, you’ll hear all about it.
