Tuesday’s Tip - using isometrics to increase size and strength.

We have talked about isometric training in the past. It is one of my favorite modalities to help train injured patients and athletes as well as make the rest stronger. Research has recently popped up that shows that you can increase both size and strength. It depends on how hard you contract your muscles when performing the exercises.

I am currently performing Deadlift, curl and overhead press for 6 seconds x 6 reps after my regular workout. We love the #isochain for the feedback and ability to document the force. However, you can find weights that are too heavy To lift or objects to push against to create the isometric tension. (Janelle throwback in here. ) lol
