No matter your fitness level or budget, Heavyhands can easily add something new to your workouts. Leonard Schwartz, Heavyhands are fitness training aids used to help improve your cardio endurance while simultaneously improving your overall strength.

Part of the handle wraps around walkihg back of your hand which allows you to momentarily relax your grip without completely losing hold of the weight.

Heavyhands are now designed with add-on weights, and some are made with custom, ergonomically designed handles. Whether you prefer to work out at the gym, at home or while walking, you have a variety of Heavyhands exercises from which to choose. While moving around in a small area, try shadowboxing exercises.

To perform these exercises while walking, simply swing and pump your arms with purpose. While holding your Heavyhands, begin your workout with an easy, five-minute warm-up.

While maintaining your pace and without breaking stride, perform 20 chest flyes and then return to biceps curls for another 20 reps with each arm.
