Has The Debate Finally Been Solved?

Who Started The Walking-With-Weights Craze, Dr. Leonard Schwartz or Steve Reeves?

“Steve will go down in history as the most handsome and one of the greatest bodybuilders ever,” says fitness guru and longtime friend Jack LaLanne, 85.

Steve Reeves was a fitness fanatic and a bodybuilder, most famous for playing Hercules in the 1950s.

But in the 1980’s, as he was getting older, he had issues running so he began looking for aerobic exercises that wouldn’t hurt his knees.

He ended up writing a book called Power Walking that would help to popularize the craze of walking with weights to get a full-body workout.

This was also around the time that Dr. Leonard Schwartz published his HeavyHands book, designed to do the same thing.

Both men have since passed away, but the debate lives on about who started what, when, and first.

And in this audio, you’ll hear Steve Reeves’s side of the story, straight from Bob, a fellow bodybuilder and longtime friend of Steve’s.

At age 60, Bob is still a bodybuilder in great shape.

He says, if you want to be successful in any industry, you should find someone who has already achieved the success you want, and do what they did.

That strategy worked for him. While researching how Steve Reeves worked out, Bob ultimately became friends with him.

They shared fitness tips, strategies, and stories. And in this audio, you’ll hear what all of those were.
