HeavyHands users will find it interesting that Dr.

Schwartz while using heavier


weights for some specific exercises like Double Ski Poling tended to max out wit
h walking weights in the 8 pound range and often used lighter weights for faster
movements and more work . He too derived long term benefits from weights easily di
smissed as too light by many. His understanding of exercise was much different tha
n Bolton s, but those differences aside, this article mention s Bolton s exercises for
the variety they can add to a HeavyHands routine.
As our understanding of progressive resistance increased, these claims to benefit
from insanely light weights seemed preposterous, and things like Sandow s strength
and muscularity were attributed exclusively to secret training he never talked ab
out.
As Bolton studied the matter, he concluded people had missed something the mental
action and tension that attends the exercise and gets effects that are not depe
ndent solely on the weight. That seemed to jibe with a McMaster s University study
mentioned toward the end of Bolton s book.
I understood this better after I d been swinging the HeavyHands already and was wa
rmed up first. I could feel the movements better than simply doing them cold .
One thing that modern fitness folks are starting to comprehend as they revisit s
ome of the old ways is the impact of muscle control and focus in the use of light
weights (or simply tensing muscles alone) and how that relates to strength and e
ndurance performance ask Pavel sometime as he lectures on Maxick, a famous muscle
control artist and strongman.
Of course Sandow and others used the qualities developed through their dumbbell
work to attend to their strength feats later in Sandow s case literally later in th
e evening during his performances! The dumbbells were the base workout.
