Isometric Exercises for the health of it!
Welcome, everyone! Thank you for taking the time to check out our Blog on Isometric Exercises.
I rarely like to give examples of exercise or talk about one specific movement, or in this case non-movement, due to the fact that everyone's body is completely different. Each person needs stimuli specific to their needs to create a response safely within the body.
Isometric Exercises are a safer place to start with exercise
Isometric Exercise is different than your everyday run-of-the-mill, let's say, bench press. With this exercise, I will show you that we won't be moving... at all, and therefore the risk associated with the exercise is greatly decreased.
That's right, no moving! Stay with me here! My exercise junkies, those of you that think an exercise is not an exercise unless you are covered in sweat and in agonizing pain. There are a lot of benefits to gain by increasing your Isometric strength, which we will address in a future Blog post.
For now, here is a series of Isometric Exercises that I want you to start doing every day! For each of these pictures, I want you to press in the direction of the arrows as hard as you can for 30 seconds. Remember, do not let anything move. Just squeeze your muscles as hard as you can! Repeat this 4 times in each position. Then you will go back to the same positions but reverse the direction you are pushing.
We Challenge you, Isometric Contest!
I challenge you to do this for a month 5 times a week. If you give it your 100% and by the end of your month you don't feel stronger more stable and experience fewer aches and pains, well then you get a training package with Kevin for a month.....FREE.
The only catch is you have to share every day you do the workout on social media. Nothing fancy - just a picture of you doing the isometric exercises. Don't forget to tag Kevin and Fitness-Tek to show us your progress!
