Live Event with Lauren Eirk | Integrated Isometrics: Lower Body
Getting Stronger • 1h 11m
This workout combines standing, seated, and supine lower 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 block, 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 block and a thigh band for some of the floor 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.
