2. What are the benefits of Isometric Exercise?
The three main benefits of Isometric Exercise are that you can grow stronger, faster, and safer than traditional strength training.
In order to grow stronger, you must stimulate your muscle. When you exert maximum effort in an Isometric Exercise your body responds to the demand by recruiting ALL of your muscle fibers. This is known as “Maximal Voluntary Contraction”. The problem with traditional strength training is that you typically train with full range of motion (ROM), which forces you to automatically limits how much weight you can train with. You can only lift what your body allows in your weakest ranges of motion.
But while your muscles are in their strongest positioning, they are capable of a much stronger effort. With isometric exercise, without the limiting effect of motion, you can produce a maximal stimulus on your muscles, resulting in a remarkably greater increase in strength over a shorter period of time.
With traditional strength training using full ROM, you only stimulate your muscles to what body can handle in your weakest range, thereby seeing a much slow increase in strength than using Isometrics. In many cases, people following a traditional strength training routine actually perform exercises with the same weight and reps (or sometimes less) over the course of a week(s). Basically, they aren’t happy with the results they are getting because they aren’t stimulating the muscle enough and they end up training too frequently as a result.
When you exert maximum effort in an Isometric Exercise your body responds by recruiting ALL your muscle fibers. This type of stimulation forces your muscles strengthen, and also results in increasing your bones density, strengthens your tendons and ligaments, boosts your heart and pulmonary activated, and also enhances your brain function as it corresponds to the impact on your nervous system.
And since you are providing a maximal stimulus on your muscle with Isometric Training, you don’t need to perform multiple sets of multiple exercises all targeting the same muscle. Nor do you have to train them as frequently.
You can train your entire body with Isometric Exercises in less than 10 MINUTES PER WEEK and see amazing results!
Using our machine in 12-week program, clients saw a 54-300% increase in strength!
With only having to dedicate 10-15 minutes a week to strength training, this gives an athlete much more time to spend on their sport specific training, or any other activity YOU want. Who wouldn’t want to free up extra hours in their weekly schedule, and at the same time get stronger? We know we would!
Isometric Exercises are typically performed at the bodies strongest ranges of motion. This significantly diminishes the stress placed on joints while at their weakest point, where injury is most likely to occur. Using the PeakFitPro, you are able to maintain better mechanics while exerting a greater force on the muscle.
Since the PeakFitPro has a built-in 5,000-pound load cell, the time-consuming task of adding and removing weight plates is eliminated. No longer will you have to worry about dropping heavy weights on your feet or pinching your fingers as you stack them together.
Plus, because there are no heavy weights being moved around, there is no longer a need for a spotter!
In fact, Isometric Training is so safe and easy to perform compared to traditional strength training, it’s excellent for individuals who are recovering from an injury or dealing with a pain or condition that limits certain types of movements. Whatever the reason may be, Isometric Exercise can be a great alternative, as minimal joint movement is involved, to increase one’s strength and improve physical function.
