Heavyhands Weights System VS Dumbbells, Wrist Weights And Weighted Gloves.
You do not want to use regular hand weights for extended pumping during aerobic training like you do with the heavy hands handles and weights.
Below is an outline of some of the advantages and disadvantages of each
The purpose of this information is to give you an informed overview why you may want to consider the patented heavyhands handle with weights over dumbbells, wrist weights or weighted gloves.
The Heavyhands exercise handle and weight structure is particularly adapted for aerobic and related extended-time type exercises.
These aerobic hand weights are made for prolonged and extended use in aerobic exercises.
Dumbbells have long been used for exercise purposes.
In general, they have been designed for use in arm, shoulder and chest development in a standing position.
The dumbbells which have been available have been quite satisfactory for such purposes.
But dumbbells are not satisfactory for use in the correct performance of aerobic exercises in which hundreds or even thousands of repetitions of movement are involved as compared with the relatively few repetitions of conventional dumbbells.
We all know that aerobic exercise has been found to be highly effective in adapting the body, particularly its heart muscle and skeletal muscles, to utilize oxygen at higher rates.
Running, jogging and walking have achieved a new dimension in physical fitness regimens.
The effectiveness of this training may be augmented to a surprising degree by loading the limbs of the person doing the exercise.
Hand and leg weights serve this purpose well; however, the limiting factor in the use of conventional dumbbells is the gripping power of the hand which tends to fatigue more rapidly than the large muscle masses of the arms and legs.
Received the HH weights yesterday!!! Brilliant!!!I went out this morning for my workout and was immediately taxed by the extra weight!!! Wow what a wimp!!! However, once I warmed up I initiated my regular routine and was able to cut the reps by more then half with a real serious burn. Definitely took the workout to another level! Thanks for reminding me to take it easy and not get hurt.
Thanks brother for a great product! While not cheap it is money well spent!!Cheers,Prio
Aerobic exercises by their very nature are prolonged in duration, frequently extending over periods in excess of an hour.
Thus, the limiting factor of gripping power is a very real and significant and limiting one for such exercises.
Wrist weights have been proposed; however, the effective lever arm is lengthened by placing the weights in or on the hands.
Moreover, the comfort factor is a real consideration, for wrist weights are frequently uncomfortable and tend to chafe the wearer.
Weight gloves are a highly satisfactory means of adding the desired weight for aerobic exercise but are limited by inherent practicalities of glove size and comfort.
In order for a hand weight or dumbbells to be acceptable for use in aerobic exercises it must meet the following criteria.
1) Capable of supporting exercise of long duration.
2) Prevent undue spasm of the arm and hand musculature by a soft, yet firm hand engaging means extending over the back of the hand
3) Capable of releasing the hand muscles from the necessity and burden of gripping a dumbbell shaft continuously, so as to promote optimal circulation of blood, reduce the likelihood of untoward elevation of blood pressure and promote prolonged exercise
4) Be able to support the continuation of very rapid arm movements of extreme amplitude, including a succession of abrupt starts and stops which would be traumatic to skin, muscles, ligamentous and joint structure of the hand if not protected
5) Permits the exerciser to determine his pulse count without removing the weight from the hand.
6) Suitable for all ambulatory exercises involving both arms and legs, i.e. walking and running.
7) Ensure the safe use of the dumbbell during exercise in which the hands attain an inordinately high velocity. During such exercise the force involved tends to cause the weight to be disengaged from the gripping hand, increases the exerciser’s concern and effort and diminishes his freedom of motion.
Heavyhands handles are highly satisfactory for use in aerobic exercises. It satisfies all of the foregoing requirements.
Its form is such that the hand can be relaxed periodically and the constant isometric contraction of the hand and forearm muscles, which is a severe limit in prolonged exercise with dumbbells, is reduced markedly.
This relaxation serves to increase the blood flow to the gripping fingers and to reduce greatly the likelihood of the muscle spasm which frequently aborts such exercises prematurely when using conventional dumbbells and like weights.
The handle portion of the heavy hand handle is covered with a soft foam and a resilient backing and may be contoured to conform generally to the shape of a user’s hand and fingers when in the gripping position.
This provides a self-adjustment not available in any dumbbell and the hand can remain partly relaxed during aerobic exercises.
In this position, the hand weight will be held on the hand with the fingers relaxed so that its use is not dependent in any way upon the continuous strength of the user’s grip.
A foam or spongy cellular surface aids in the frictional gripping action of the hand weight on the hand of the user. And the foam dries rapidly after “sweating”.
If your hands start to sweat holding dumbbells, you may have them slip from your hands due to moisture and a prolonged weakening of the hand.
I hope this helps.

Recently, I received a complaint about the "high price" of my custom made to order heavyhands weights. So I had to educate him on what actually goes into each set of your fat burning, body sculpting walking hand weights. You'd think this man thought these weights grow on trees.
So I went into the shop and shot some photos at our Southern California plant where these puppies are made. Scroll down through some of these photos and let me share just a little about the birth place of your set of heavyhands ad on weights for men.
You are looking at the measurements on a Fanuc high production CNC lathe-mill. These machines are incredibly accurate. They can measure the thickness to the one thousandth of an inch. That's incredibly accurate!
We use a chamfer bit to creates a uniform chamfer on the inside edge of all our weights to add character, while retaining a crisp geometric line. You won't see it once it's on your heavyhand handle, but your know it's there. It's just an extra design element that we feel is important and once that you'll grow to appreciate.
Here's where we tap the part to give it the proper thread. This is the hole you'll screw your AMF Heavyhands handles onto. You are ensured a nice tight fit that goes in perfect each time you take your weights off or onto the handles.
We made sure to clean the hole thoroughly by blowing out the chips from the drilling process. Any chips in the hole may cause the tap to snag while we're creating the threads. By clearing the hole, we ensure your threads are cut properly during the tapping process.
Each Heavyhand Ad on Weight is weighed so you can calculate the workloads and kilocalories you are burning during a Heavyhand workout.
