Isometric Tune Up

Updated: Mar 20

With isometric exercises, muscles are tensed without movement like pushing as hard as you can against a brick wall, being that you nor the wall moves. Efficient isometric tension should be held for 8-15 seconds, depending on the conditioning of the targeted muscle group.

• Tense your abdominal muscles during exhalation in diaphragmatic breathing.

• In a prayer position, press your hands firmly into each other.

• Sitting in a chair with your feet flat on the ground press your heels into the ground as hard as you can.

• Inside a doorway, with your hands at your sides, put the backs of your hands against either side of the door frame and push as if you are trying to widen the space.

• With your back against the wall shift your weight to either side, lifting the opposite foot off the ground. Push your raised heel into the wall as hard as you can.

For a structured plan towards tuning and toning your body to how you'd like it to be. Schedule a physical training session with me or check out my Follow Along body weight programs and achieve the goals you seek.
