This presentation is approximately 59 minutes. It is titled “HeavyHands Panaerobics” because HeavyHands was, indeed, the first version of “Panaerobics” pioneered by Dr. Schwartz and subsequently followed by “Longstrength Calisthenics” and “ISO”.
Unlike Dr. Schwart’z <a href="” target=”_blank”>HeavyHands books like “HeavyHands Walking” or “HeavyHands: The Ultimate Exercise” which emphasize the use of weighted hands while walking, jogging, or even running, this HeavyHands video portrays a workout system designed to be done indoors with only a few steps (usually no more than 4) in any direction.
While walking or jogging with HeavyHands cannot be said to display a “Dancelike” motion (some pictures of groups walking with HeavyHands doing back exercises look anything but dance like – and, in fact, make the walkers look more like a flock of DoDo birds!), Leonard Schwartz’ HeavyHands video offers a dance like exercise with plenty of “flow” emphasizing what Dr. Schwartz called “grace”. He enjoyed performing his exercise indoors and to music… it’s easy to see how HeavyHand performed this way could be benefited by music.
Leonard Schwartz’ HeavyHands Panaeorbics – as displayed in the linked video – is still going strong for a group of devoted users.
