Would you like to get stronger without moving a single muscle? Most strength training routines build muscle mass through repetitive movement at the joints. But if you are recovering from an injury, or have sore, stiff joints, this form of exercise can be difficult to perform safely and effectively.
A unique alternative to traditional strength training is isometric exercise. Isometrics max out muscle capacity by maintaining a single contraction for an extended duration of time. Benefits include improved strength, stability, and an increased awareness of proper form when exercising. Isometrics are ideal for those searching for a powerful, transforming, low-impact conditioning circuit.
Don't be fooled by the simplicity of the following exercises. It only takes a few seconds before you start to shake, quake, and feel the burn. For best results, repeat this circuit five times.
