Are you trying to change up your workout routine? Well, this week, Chris Heria shares his approach on how to incorporate isometric exercises into your regimen.
Isometric exercises help you build muscle and strength while focusing on a singular, sustained position charged with muscle tension as opposed to focusing on quantitative repetitions of movement. This training is absence of isometric or eccentric contractions, yet it still strengthens your ligaments, tendons, and surrounding connective tissues. This facilitates progression to advanced exercises, heavier lifts, and ability to conquer greater overloads. The increased time under tension targets different aspects of muscle development, and if you want even more of a challenge, you can increase the resistance or supplement with weight. This is not to say that isometric training reigns superior. Rather, by combining the two schools of training, maximum strength can be achieved.
Now, give isometric training a chance, and start training on the Heria Pro App!
