Isometric Breathing Foam Rolling - The Key to Great Health and Superhuman Power

Isometric Breathing is THE MOST important practice you can bring into your day. You can stop eating, even stop drinking water for a number of days, but you can't stop breathing for more than a few minutes. Breathing is THE most fundamental function of the human body. Breathing literally gives us life, from biblical references to modern science breathing is the most important thing we will ever do....yet how many of us even pay attention to how we breathe....?

In this article I am going to share with you one of my core teachings and key techniques, a method of power generation that nourishes every cell of your body - Isometric breathing!

Live For Strength, Die for Toughness - The Road to Being Mighty -

By Jarell Lindsey of

The following guest article is written by one of most ardent isometric trainees. A man that has lived the Isometric-Training Lifestyle and built a staggeringly impressive physique and the real world strength to match it.

Here Jarell shares some of his thoughts and philosophies on strength...

"You want to embrace death to become tough, yet walk the life of strength to become mighty".

Following the various training programs and systems on the planet today, you can achieve a ridiculous amount or strength, muscle, whatever you desire. With the right focus and discipline, you can take twelve weeks and become like a completely new person with the strength fit to render sturdy pieces of iron into pretzels. All of these programs can give you a strength on a level that's probably unfamiliar to you, but none of these programs will make you tough.

The people of societies past had to face many struggles that, as a people, we are largely unfamiliar with.....

Master Your Metabolism - The 20 Second Dragon Snap Challenge (NEW WORKOUT!!!)

This is my ultra-intense routine. If I'm pressed for time and really want to crush my body's weakness, super charge my metabolism and get myself lean and mean, then this is the program I do. It involves an exertion period of just 20 seconds, but once that 20 seconds is up you WILL be gasping for air, panting like there is no tomorrow, drenched in sweat and your muscles will ache. It may be the very hardest 20 seconds of your life.


Master Your Muscles - Positive Trauma

I wrote earlier that the goal of this program was to cause trauma. In this issue I'll explain EXACTLY what I mean by this.

Creating a positive stimulus that leads to proper fibre recruitment, and in turn a larger cross sectional size and count of FG fibres, is dependent on a number of factors. As we've seen, ......

Master Your Mind - Avoid Self Sabotage

As many of you know, aside from being a personal trainer, I'm qualified in a range of other disciplines and run my own TC medical practice. One of the most powerful tools I use in transforming the health of my patients and clients, be it to lose weight, recover from injury, conceive etc, is NLP.

The unfortunate truth is that every day we unconsciously program ourselves to fail. We say negative things all the time as a way of protecting ourselves from disappointment if we fail - because we think we will.

What A Dragon does is different. They think ......

Master Your Meal - The 1st Habit of the Dragon Nutritional Program

In my clinic, I teach the 10 nutritional Habits of Dr. John Berardi from his Precision Nutrition course. If you do nothing but apply these ten tips, you will have a thorough understanding of what to eat, when to eat and why; anytime, anywhere and for any physique goal you wish, be it weight loss or weight gain. I cannot stress how highly I recommend that course.

However, as these principals are so utterly crucial, I'd like to spend a chapter or two going through them with you and helping you to integrate these into your life. I've changed the order around a little and go into some more detail than Dr. Berardi, but here they are .....

"206 bones. 5 major organs. 60,000 miles of blood vessels.

All it takes is time.



Years, spent memorizing the finite ways there are to hurt and break a man.

Preparing for all of them.

I've escaped from every conceivable death-trap. Ten times. A dozen times. I can slow my breathing and metabolism to control panic and conserve air. Straitjacket's kindergarten. Locks, too.

Bench pressing a pine coffin lid through 600 pounds of loose soil that's filling your mouth crushing your lungs flat and shredding your dehydrated muscles. That's harder.

But far from impossible."

- Batman (words by Grant Morrison)

That's the reason I push myself to press more than 600lbs. That's why I push myself to the limits of my endurance and then ask more of myself.

Because I'm Batman.

What's your reason?

Here's my guest article on Benjamin Bergman's Blog. Check it out! -

Check out these and OTHER EXCLUSIVE updates over at the Facebook Page - where you you can ask me your training questions!!! :-)


If you aren't on my Facebook page - you really should get on it. It's filled with tips, insights, new program info and my own workout progress and details.

Maximetric's Master's!

As you know I released my advanced muscle mass building program MAXIMETRICS ( and man are people excited - and already getting great results from the training... check out the comments and feedback I've been getting...

" Hi Paul, I did my first Maximetrics workout yesterday -

WOOOW, that was the most intense workout I've ever done in my life, was shaking all over, in pain and probably lost 2lb in sweat in less than 12 minutes :)

I tried to follow your Maximetrics video sessions with 8 times of 10secs contractions per set with 5 secs rest in between contractions. Man, you must be extremely fit, as on your videos you managed to stay quite stable all the way through and kept within your 4sec rests in-between!"

- Emil


"Hi Paul

I just wanted to write this email to say Congratulations on Maximetrics. I recently posted on the PB forum asking a question on re-learning to contract a muscle after surgery. I was planning on waiting to purchase Maximetrics until I had gained some strength back in my shoulder, but the temptation was too much. I tried the contractions in Maximetrics and was able to contract my shoulder and back much better than with the isolation iso's. I will be sticking to Maximetrics for a while then back to PB once i feel more strength in my shoulder.

Thanks you Paul



"Hi Paul,

I´ve downloaded Maximetrics today. It seems fantastic! Congratulations!!!!

- Felipe"


BUT the best report yet came from the Facebook page fan Elizabeth Chen -

"I've actually taken my time over the last couple days to absorb all the info and practice the exercises without going all out yet (super intense just doing it, and I wasn't even getting serious with it yet!). And it's been SUPER helpful to go through all of this, as I realized that I actually wasn't going to "positive failure" and giving it my all on the 7 Seconds to a Perfect Body exercises, which makes a lot of sense to me now!

Have been applying what I learned over the last couple days to the 7 Sec. exercises and REALLY feel the difference. It's kind of amazing to me that I've been able to get such good results even despite not giving it my all previously, in that I lost all the weight I gained during my pregnancy 2 weeks after giving birth. I had done isometrics a lot during the pregnancy and they also helped me heal up and get back in shape, along with doing jujitsu twice a week since the baby turned 6 months old.

Am ready to take my body and fitness to the next level with this now, am really looking forward to it! Am planning on doing my first "Maximetrics" workout today, and will report back the results I get in the next couple weeks for ya! "

and then she updated a day later....

"OK, just finished first workout. Love it. Will follow up with results in a couple more weeks after a few more workouts!"

I can't wait to see Elizabeth's progress. She's going to be phenomenal. :-)

You can get the SAME program that these people are LOVING - right now -
