What people are saying about Isometric Exercise.
“To keep things interesting, I use a mix of weights, resistance and isometric training. If you keep your muscles guessing, it makes them work harder. Whatever I'm doing, I'm careful not to overstress my muscles. I push to the point of muscle failure, not pain.”

"Besides blood pressure, isometric exercise is associated with other beneficial effects consisting of an increase in muscle bulk, upper and lower body strength, increase in bone density, and a decrease in bone fractures. These changes are extremely beneficial to older patients by making them more mobile and increasing their quality of life."
The Journal Of Clinical Hypertension (2010)
"Isometric exercise is unique in its ability to rapidly increase muscle strength and tone muscle faster than that seen for dynamic exercise."
The Journal of Applied Research (2007)
"We could observe the effectiveness of the isometric exercise program. The findings of our study indicate that isometric exercise reduces pain within a short period."
Clinics in Orthopedic Surgery (2010)
"Furthermore, our results show that women with fibromyalgia who experience substantial pain perception before exercise may gain the greatest pain relief from isometric contractions."
Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (2011)
The consensus recommendation for individuals suffering from Osteoarthritis Pain is for the daily use of Isometric Strength Exercises.
Journal of the American Geriatric Society (2001)
"Following musculoskeletal pathology, where a disorder of muscle onset timing has been identified, practitioners should consider the use of isolated muscle training to restore the timing of muscle onset. It is recommended that a dosage of 3 sets of 10 isometric holds of 5 -10 s be performed twice daily to achieve these effects.
Practitioners should exercise caution when prescribing both instability training and general strength training to improve muscle onset timing as research on these two exercise modes is currently limited and inconclusive."
Physical Therapy in Sport (2011)
Stretching and fitness training are commonly advised for patients with chronic neck pain, but stretching and aerobic exercising alone proved to be a much less effective form of training than (isometric) strength training."
Journal of the American Medical Association (2003)
"Early introduction of isometric exercise is a relevant choice in cases of patients with sciatica caused by the disc herniation. Complex assessment of the applied isometric exercises based on routinely performed clinical evaluation verified by neurophysiological tests seems to be the optimal tool."
