Dr. Leonard Schwartz, the inventor of Heavyhands made millions on his patents, best selling books and licensing deals to AMF Sports and others.
I’ve been in the business of manufacturing and selling hand weights from my site http://www.WeightedHands.com for the last several years. This exercise system is one I have been testing all along and it’s helped me drop 12% of my body weight over the last few months without destroying my back, knees and feet.
Millions of the little red sets of Heavyhands weights were sold in the 1980s.
Here’s an inside look at the story of HeavyHands and how Schwartz says working out with them can change the way you age.
Exercise enthusiast, Neil Myers, struck up a friendship with Dr. Schwartz years ago after reading how the late doctor used HeavyHands to decrease his pulse rate from 60 to 38 and his body fat from 14% to 4%.
Neil had only heard of elite athletes with numbers like that (not some guy in his 50s), so he contacted the doctor to find out more.
That was the beginning of a lifelong friendship that would change the way Neil viewed aging.
Dr. Leonard Schwartz didn’t believe that the musculoskeletal system needed to decline as we age.
He believed that working all four limbs at the same time, instead of just two, would allow feedback loops from the heart to the muscles to form and strengthen, preventing sudden overloads on the heart while also preventing muscular declines in strength and movement.
And in this audio interview, you’ll get an inside look at the inventor of the HeavyHands workout along with tips on the best exercises to do with the weights and how Dr. Leonard Schwartz intended they be used to improve your life.
