Warning: Some of you are about to think I’m crazy. For those of you who haven’t heard of isometrics, this strength building concept is going to make you think I’ve officially walked off the deep end. Functional strength and awesome muscle mass gains with out even moving? This must be some kind of joke, right?
It’s not. Let’s do a little experiment. Stop what you’re doing for a second, sit up straight and bring your palms together, fingers pointing out, about 12 inches away from you. Now press them together as hard as you can. Breathe. Breathe more. A little more. And…. stop.
