Heavy Hands Walkingp

Harvey Schwartz, Author, Leonard Schwartz, Author Rodale Press $12.95 (210p) ISBN 978-0-87857-692-0
A behaviorally oriented physician and author who launched a fitness phenomenon with the bestselling Heavyhands, Schwartz here fine-tunes his system for achieving cardiovascular strength and building nonbulky muscularity. Aimed at serious walkers and athletes, his illustrated step-by-step guidance includes some informed opinion but mostly rests on scientific research. He offers well-organized training programs for all levels, in which weight-enhanced movements of the arms and torso are ""paired'' with the workout that legs get during vigorous walking. Chapters on back care, weight control and indoor training round out this imaginative concept. (May)
