Cardio without running Cardio without running — Read on cavestrong.net/2018/07/11/cardio-without-running-2/ I was searching WordPress for ideas related to “HeavyHands” but these days that pulls up everything from Boxing to domestic violence (I kid you not) . This idea surfaced “cardio without running”… some interesting Videos, though not exactly “panaerobics”. Where do you look for ideas […]

Longstrength for Nordic Walking

Nordic Walking by definition is “Panaerobic”…some estimate that 90% of one’s musculature is involved. Whatever the amount Dr. Schwartz defined it as basically any movement activating all 4 limbs and as much muscle as possible. It’s a nice alternate day exercise for me – I find it works well doing HeavyHands one day and this […]

As big fans of HeavyHands know, one of Dr. Schwartz’ early inspirations (besides a torn hamstring from running) was CROSS COUNTRY SKIING.  The “Panaerobic” action of all limbs moving simultaneously against resistance gave cross country skiiers HUGE abilities to process oxygen … far more than other athletes. Nordic Walking is the “cousin” of cross country skiing […]

  Nausea. Seeing stars. Sucking wind. This is how you know you’re doing a Tabata [high intensity] workout correctly. Shape.com And most would agree… you can’t be working out at “high intensity” unless you are on the verge of tears, right?. Anything less and it’s just some more of that “low intensity cardio” right? Well […]

Is Body Pump “basically the same as” HeavyHands or Panaerobics? (more information can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BodyPump) Some say that there is a similarity because both seem to use relatively light weights and high reps. Is that true? Is the defining aspect of Dr. Schwartz’ exercise systems “high reps”? Or even the use of weights necessarily? In reality, […]

The Pace of Panaerobics

What speed should you use with Panaerobics – whether HeavyHands, Longstrength, or IsoTonoMetrics? The books of Dr. Schwartz are helpful in this regard – to a point. He describes working at various rates – all which seem rather fast paced. It could even seem like this suggested speed of motion could not be done while […]

John aka “HHEnthusiast” recently posted an example of how a panaerobic exercise session might progress.  John personally communicated with Dr. Leonard Schwartz. In addition to doing HeavyHands three times per week, he finishes off each workout with “Panaerobics” or “Longstrength” calisthenics as taught to him by Dr. Schwartz. The Pan-X device is shown to the […]

Suppversity is a brilliant blog to read… Here’s one of their latest articles on fatburning you should read for yourself: HIIT or LISS – A Question of Efficacy? High Intensity Interval Training Kickstarts Fatty Acid Oxidation & Metabolism to Make Up for the Higher Energy Exp. During LISS in 24h It’s not only worth reading, […]

It’s possible to read about Dr. Schwartz’ IsoTonoMetrics in the patent filing on Fitness Method and begin to understand the concepts behind “isotonometrics”. The allusions to isometrics and dynamic tension are giveaways and can help people get started doing “ISO” even before being able to watch the Schwartz video on the topic. There are some […]

If you had a leaky faucet and a plumber came out and announced they were done when they’d only fixed 35% of the leak, you’d be mad! If you went to the operating room for an appendectomy and they only took out 35% of your problematic appendix, you’d still be sick! If you opened your […]
