When I say the term “isometric exercise” … what’s the
first thing that comes to your mind?
If you’re like me …. the first thing that comes to mind
are pictures of old-time strongman like Alexander Zass.
(That’s the guy built like a rock in the picture below.)
Men like Alexander relied heavily on isomteric movements
for 2 reasons …
- It’s great for muscle growth, as it recruits the largest
- It drastically increases the “mind-muscle” connection
and boosts growth hormone levels up to 453% for
quicker muscle gains and fat loss!!
I’ve been using isometrics (in addition to other muscle
building techniques) to add some rock-hard mass to my
frame for the past 2 years.
I’m loving the results (and so is my wife)!
Here are 2 of my favorite isometric movements that’ll
help pack on some lean muscle fast.
1. Chest: Push-Up Peak Contraction
Get in the top position of a push-up, hands wider than shoulder
width and elbows just short of lockout.
Brace your abs, squeeze the glutes, and then attempt to pull
the hands together as intensely as possible.
Your hands won’t move, but your pectorals will be firing like hell.
Hold this position for 10 seconds. Repeat 5 times with a 2 to 3
minute rest between sets.
2. Triceps: Self Resisted Push Down
This equipment-free exercise is an good way to strengthen the
muscles on the back of your upper arm.
With your hands clasped together, tuck your left elbow into your
side with your palm facing downward. Using your opposite arm
for resistance, push down as hard as you can.
Hold this position for 10 to 20 seconds and then change sides.
Repeat it 5 times.
Make it a great day,
P.S. You’ll AMAZE your family, friends, and lovers with how
quickly your physique changes — I guarantee it!
