Yielding Isometrics- Holding an exercise at the hardest part of the movement, for instance squat holds is a isometric hold! You can use this method for all of your exercises, personally I use this on bicep curls holding at the top of the movement for 3-5seconds.
Make sure that you don’t end up just holding the weight or the position, but you stay in full contraction or stabilisation. I like using this for hypertrophic GAINS, and although this is seen to be a hit and miss method for muscular gain. In my opinion have a muscle under constant tension for a longer duration will help tear muscle fibres! Which will help build.
Pushing or Pulling a immovable object at the angle where you feel most difficult. For instance if you were to-do bench press you may find “4-inches from your chest to be the hardest part”. To train this part of the movement to get stronger it is proven that training at the angle of difficulty will result in the highest rate of progression! Which will make those “stuck” angles a lot easier.
Imagine setting up a bar and pushing it into the rack hooks at that 4inch increment. For 2seconds your pushing at 60-70% and for 3 seconds you push at a full 100%. Repeat this 5x3! THIS IS HARD ON THE JOINTS. So when utilising this style of isometric make sure you don’t do it in all of your training sessions! And to use it in a training block like a 4week split. As it is also taxing on the Central Nervous System so make sure you don’t over use this technique! #newagesculpting #gym #pt #bodybuilding #strengthtraining #musclenation #likeforlikes #comment4comment #followforfollowback #followback #nutrition #competition #preperation #health #knowledge
