This workout combines standing, seated, and supine upper body isometrics to build strength, improve muscle contractions, lower risk of injury, reduce inflammation, increase bone density, burn fat, and help with mobility.
When we perform an exercise and push into the mat or a sponge ball, muscles contract while they are held in a specific position. These muscles will essentially get better at contracting into this joint position. Isometric training can reduce joint inflammation and improve your metabolism if done regularly.
You will need a Yoga Strap and a mini ball for some of the upper body positions. We will move slowly and methodically to give time to feel the resistance. When muscles are stronger throughout a joint range, we have less pain and more mobility.
