Isometric Boost

Isometric Boost

The isometric exercise routines in this collection are designed to help you keep your muscular system healthy. Isometric resistance training involves a contraction of muscles without any movement in the surrounding joints. Holding these positions under light tension will help build muscle, strength, balance and range of motion. Other isometric exercise benefits include stress reduction, improved mental health, lowering of inflammation, improved joint stability, and injury rehabilitation.

Try these videos as an exercise program on their own, as a warm-up for more vigorous exercise, or for recovery. You will notice less pain and stiffness with regular practice!
