Heavyhands Interview

The Inventor Or Heavyhands And Interview . . .

By senoff.michael@gmail.com On November 20, 2015 No Comments
Heavyhands Interview

It’s no secret . . .

I’ve been in the business of manufacturing and selling hand weights from my site http://www.WeightedHands.com for the last two years.

That’s one reason you have not heard from me so much recently.

This exercise system is one I have been testing all along and it’s helped me drop over 12% of my body weight over the last few months without destroying my back, knees and feet.
Millions of the little red sets of similar hand weights were sold back in the 1980 under the brand name Heavyhands.

Leonard Schwartz, the inventor of Heavyhands made millions on his patents, best selling books and license deal to AMF Sports.

Here’s an inside look at the story of HeavyHands and how the inventor says working out with them can change the way you age.

Neil Myers, struck up a friendship with Dr. Schwartz many years ago after reading how the 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. 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. Schwartz intended they be used to improve your life.

You’ll Also Hear . . .

• Why Dr. Schwartz called swimmers and cyclists “gravity cheaters” – and how to use the resistance of gravity as a way to make workouts even more beneficial

• Why Dr. Schwartz didn’t believe you needed to lift heavy weights to improve health and strength – and a quick look at how he came up with his HeavyHands fitness concept

• Debunking the hero myth that you need to “push through the pain” when exercising – what your body is really telling you and what to do instead

• The real problem with “repetitive exercises’ and how simple changes to your HeavyHands workout can result in a whole new fitness routine – with changes in speed, cadence, angle, direction, and weight

• What Dr. Schwartz considered to be one of the most important concepts to learn about fitness: “long-strength training.” What that means and how to make it a part of your routine

• A step-by-step look at how to do one of the single most difficult movements of HeavyHands, and why you may want to give it a try

• How long it usually takes to build a virtual “fat-burning furnace” so you’re controlling your weight with energy, strength, and stamina (without really trying)

As a hypnosis practitioner, Neil works with clients to improve their health and well being.

He says he recommends the HeavyHands workout to all his clients because it’s so versatile.

It doesn’t matter if you’re already an elite athlete or a couch potato, no matter where you are in life, there’s a place for you to start and get immediate benefits from the workout.

Even in his 80s, Dr. Schwartz was able to do things most people in their 30s would be happy to be doing.

And in this interview, you’ll hear all about him.

And as soon as I get back from my Weighted Hands walk, I’ll send you this link.

Senoff’s Friday Fat Boy Report . . .

By senoff.michael@gmail.com On May 8, 2015 No Comments

Senoff’s Friday Fat Boy Report . . .

Here’s the thing.

I don’t smoke,

I barely drink,

And don’t do drugs

But dangs,

I loves to eats.

So since I got back from my Mexican Cabo siesta, I’ve been putting on pounds of ugly fat around my belly, face and buttocks.

And it’s time to get back on the hands.

My Weighted Hands workout that is.

To melts the fat away.

It’s the fastest way I’ve found without starving myself and beating the crap out of my body.

And it feels easy.

Anyway, that is a whole nother email.

More at www.WeightedHands.com

So today, my Weighted Hands workout went ok.

Why?

Because I listened to an older interview I had long forgotten about.

It was 10 years ago that I interviewed a 27 Year Old Philadelphia “Boy Wonder” Who Made $100,000 With One E-mail Mailed To Local Chamber Chapter.

Here’s what it’s all about . . .

Alex Whiting, a highly successful marketing consultant kept coming across my site and decided we should talk.

As I interview Alex, he explained how he developed his marketing skills as a consultant to earn a minimum of $1,000 an hour.

Listen how one free e-mail produced $100,000 in consulting fees with a local Chamber of Commerce.

The purpose of this interview is to share Alex Whittling’s high-powered marketing consulting advice for prospecting, qualifying, marketing, getting referrals, pricing, and closing clients.

This will help you be a successful consultant and enable you to avoid typical mistakes as you work to increase your business.

During this fire side chat, you’ll learn about . . .

* Alex’s background and how he got started

* Benefits of understanding how people react and what they need to hear before they are ready to buy

* How “liking to help people” and “building trust” are critical to being a good consultant

* Importance of continuous learning and making improvements in marketing techniques

* Marketing mistakes to avoid

* Three tips for providing uber value

* How to step out of the box and do marketing differently

* Tips for lead generation, qualifying potential clients.

* The best ways to enter into a consulting situation

* How to Set monthly service fees and retainers agreements for obtaining a percentage of increased business.

Alex say’s one of his clients failed.

He said the big mistake is one that most marketers have when they go into a particular niche and it’s they forget to continue learning.

They assume that everything’s the same under every buying situation.

Anyway, it’s a great interview.

I’ll send over the mp3 download link with the pdf transcripts now.

All you gots to do is contact me by email.

PMS. Hurry however, I’m hungry after my workout!

I need to eats.

HeavyHands – A Unique Contribution From Dr. Lenord Schwartz’ to the field of Exercise and Weight Loss

By senoff.michael@gmail.com On October 2, 2014 No Comments

 

schwartzheavyhands

Though with each passing month the newsstands are filled with new magazines, books, and articles promoting the latest weight loss or exercise “secret”, the truth is an unsung hero created a method of exercise a few decades ago that would help most folks gain the physical prowess and ability to burn fat they crave. His name was Leonard Schwartz and he, himself, was walked the path most of us face. Fat, out of shape, and a chronic smoker… he was no candidate to live as long as he did. Nobody would have ever guessed the slight psychiatrist would go down in history as an exercise visionary!

Convinced in his 50’s of the need to change or die, he took up the recommended exercise protocol of his time: “aerobics”, i.e. “jogging”.  That started to work. Jogging 1500 to 2000 miles per year, his racing heart rate slowly dropped from 80 beats per minute to 60. That was slow progress to him, but it was better than nothing. The reduction in resting heart rates indicated his growing fitness, yet he did not find it satisfactory by any stretch.

About that time, a hamstring injury sidelined him. He was left needing to exercise aerobically, but unable to follow the medical advice of the day. He was forced to start searching for an alternative. He found his answer in the exercise research. Cross country skiers who used their arms AND their legs to exercise processed more oxygen and had greater aerobic capacity than any runner. So why did the “experts” only focus on using the lower extremities to exercise?  He started to search for a way around his hamstring injury that made running impossible.

First he tried swinging a baseball bat while doing deep knee bends. Ultimately he chose a different path, but the quest for a “full body” aerobic (hence the name “panaerobic”) workout never left him. Every exercise method he developed thereafter emphasized the principles he discovered after that hamstring injury:

Simultaneous Exercise – like those cross country skiers, the most aerobic benefit with the lowest level of perceived exertion comes when as much muscle mass is harnessed as possible. That means all four limbs are engaged and working together! Why? Because the arms and upper body are as effective “aerobic drivers” as the legs… and, because, compared to the legs, the aerobic capacity of the upper body has much more “upside potential”.

In plain English that means lifting HeavyHands properly during a 2.5 mph leisurely walk easily make the aerobic effect of a slow walk comparable to a 6 mph job without hand weights! Mimicking a cross country skier (the “Double Ski Pole” exercise) is perhaps the most aerobically powerful single exercise ever tested by the University of Pittsburgh scientists who helped Schwartz prove his every assertion!

Strength and Endurance – It wasn’t until Dr. Schwartz started working out with his “HeavyHands” weights that his heart rate moved below 60 down to the rate of approximately 40-50 beats per minute. When he added “strength moves” such as Double Ski Poling which he could perform with over 20% of his bodyweight for over an hour, his heart rate settled at 35 beats per minute!

Oddly enough, his HeavyHands method called for deceptively low weights. While strength athletes might lift hundreds of pounds in the Bench Press, Squat, or Deadlift in single lifts, all but the most advanced HeavyHands moves could be done with weights under 15 pounds! The difference is that Schwartz’ sculpted body, superior aerobic capacity, and great strength per pound (more on that later) came through high repetition exercise and increasing weight loads over time!

In fact, at times the lower the weight, the better! Ideally, the weights would be lifted repeatedly to “Level 3″ (moved overhead from the starting position at the hip). The people who “tried” HeavyHands and found it inadequate (even supposedly sophisticated researchers) failed because, universally, they assumed the small weights were to be “carried” instead of hefted quickly and repeatedly throughout the course of exercise.

Before moving on to the main topic of this article, it pays to ask just how strong and enduring was Dr. Schwartz?

Tom Furman relates this incident that is perhaps the most dramatic:

In 1982 Dr. Leonard Schwartz wrote, “Heavy Hands, The Ultimate Exercise”. It is an enjoyable book that is fascinating till this day. It contains many exercises including the “double ski pole” exercise. This motion follows the patterns of a Cross Country or Downhill Skier driving his poles into the snow and applying the full force of the body. Dr. Schwartz’ exercise uses handweights and a lunging step. You can do it on a track, uphill, (downhill can be tricky!), or in the small confines of an apartment. You can stand in one spot with a foot in a cast and do it as well. According to Len Schwartz, this exercise has the highest aerobic out of any upright movement. In his experiments, the good Dr. has done this exercise with 23 % of his bodyweight for two hours. He logged 4200 arm cycles and 16,800 small paces. At 132 lbs. of bodyweight, this works out to be around 30 pounds total or two 15 lb. Heavy Hands. Previously he would spend days in bed with back pain. (Previous to changing his lifestyle). He said his back felt absolutely supple after this workout.

Let’s do the math. For someone 150lbs. this would be 17.25 pound Heavy Hands. For someone of 180 lbs. it would be 20.7 lb weights. 200 lbs. ??…..Around 23lbs.

As Furman asks… could you do 4200 reps with two dumbells each weight over 10% of your bodyweight? That remains an astounding display of strength and endurance!

Weightlifter John McKean who posed for photos in Dr. Schwartz’ “HeavyHands Walking Book” related in some personal email that before his death Dr. Schwartz performed 1200 pushups during the commercial breaks of a Pittsburgh Steeler’s game. On an exercise device he created for bodyweight exercise called the “Pan-X”, Dr. Schwartz could perform 35 chinups in the “L-position”… a sign of excellent arm and abdominal strength.

So why can we call HeavyHands a unique contribution to the field of exercise and weight loss?

Hopefully the first part has been answered. Dr. Schwartz himself was proof enough that a chubby and out of shape psychiatrist could become a lean, sculpted figure! His exploits of “strength endurance” are unparalleled in some ways. The scientific references that populate his books prove that Schwartz had found a way to drastically reduce the time and perceived effort of productive exercise!

But what about weight loss?

Here are some reasons Dr. Schwartz gave regarding HeavyHands’ unique ability to help people lose or maintain their weight:

  • Energy consumption increases when pumping even light 2 lb Heavyhands by an average of 200% compared with ordinary walking without hand weights
  • [HeavyHands users experience] a range of 30-300% increase in energy consumption (The Physician and Sportsmedicine, June 1987)
  • Consumes approximately 450-600+ calories per hour (compared with 350 calories per hour for normal walking at 3.5 mph)
  • Heavyhands can be practiced for relatively long periods, i.e. between half an hour and two hours at a time, or in 5-10 minute “exercise bites” throughout the day.

Schwartz never mentioned the ability of Heavyhands to maintain and build lean muscle mass for those who may otherwise be dieting. But the ability to maintain or even increase lean muscle mass means that – even at rest – the body burns more calories. Perhaps that’s why Dr. Schwartz said he could eat as much as a young horse and never gain weight!

Why is that? Dr. Schwartz would give a clue as to “why” HeavyHands is so powerful for fat burning. He believed that the muscle created when users performed “HeavyHands” were unique. They had increased numbers of “mitochondria” to power them. It’s these cellular furnaces that may facilitate easier weight loss than the muscles of sedentary folk.

As strange as it may seem, despite the benefits, despite the relatively low cost or training to start, and the amazing benefits of HeavyHand exercise… the exercise has in many ways died out. Surely Dr. Schwartz’ untimely death was partly to blame. Soon after his passing, manufacturers exited the market. There was much more profit potential chasing the “latest greatest” fad it seemed.

Still, some people recognize the value of Dr. Schwartz’ work still today. For them, HeavyHands weights are occasionally still available on Ebay.com … their supply is sporadic and the selection of weights is generally pathetic.

Thankfully, entrepreneur Michael Senoff of 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.
