Get full Benefit from your Isometrics Workout
Training with isometrics has been scientifically proven to be the fastest way you can get in shape. In 5 minutes, you can work out your entire body. If you’re just trying to build muscle, you don’t even have to work out every day. If you want to develop cardio fitness with it, you can simply walk for 20 minutes or so. There are countless routines you can use to fit your fitness level and lifestyle. Here is a simple example for a total body routine on Isometric exercises: You can start with quadriceps extensions, calf raises, and then hamstring curls. Then abdominal stretching then lower back flexing. Next you can flex your chest and biceps, and finish up with upper back and triceps flexes.
One would think that exercise has to hurt to be effective. When using Isometric training, this is not the case. Isometric exercise is safe for all ages. You can avoid the torture of painful gym workouts and gain the same results. When you are not in pain, you tend to want to work out again and not dread future work outs. You’ll have less desire to just quit. You hold muscle resistance at a specified tension point, and gradually increase. You’re not stretching to the point of pain or burning.
Getting healthy and in better physical shape doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. A great exerciser called the OsteoBall, can cost 30-70 dollars. Astronauts have used this product to keep their muscles and bones healthy while in space. Dr. Robert Swezey, the OsteoBall inventor, found a solution for patients suffering Arthritis and painful joints. The OsteoBall is a lightweight, partially inflated ball that patients could stretch and squeeze it isometrically and be able to strengthen muscle and bones effectively.
