Lately I’ve been doing a fair amount of bodyweight isometric training.
I was inspired when seeing the results had by Bud Jeffries especially after he taught at the last Super Human Training Workshop.
I’ve also been studying oldtime strongman Alexander Zass who was famous for his use of isometrics.
Most of my training right now is with bodyweight exercises and isometrics are making up a big amount of that.
With hand balancing, there are lots of holds, like doing the handstand itself, is an isometric. But I’m doing lots more like holding specific positions of presses.
I’ve even been doing bodyweight isometric training with one arm chinnups lately. I’m continue to experiment with this and hope to have positive results to share with you later.
Holds are only one form of isometrics. There’s a whole lot that will need to be covered here in the future.
