The Benefits of Isometrics are numerous, and include all the major benefits of Weight Lifting and Strength Training, so in this article I will focus solely on explaining the benefits of Isometrics not found in other methods.

Before I do however, it might be useful to look at a few of the general benefits. Remember you can find more information on these in the articles section or by following the navigation bar on the left.

Some of the General Benefits are as follows;

Increased Lean Muscle Mass 

Regular training stimulates the growth of new lean muscle tissue. This is vital, not only for looking good, but staying healthy as it burns fat, strengthen your bones and keeps you young.

Increased Metabolism

The more lean tissue you have the faster you burn calories and the faster your metabolism becomes. Lean Muscle tissue is metabolically active – it requires more calories to sustain it than fat.

Increased Weight Loss

This is tied into the faster metabolism. Lean Muscle tissue requires 75 kcals to sustain it, whereas fat only requires three. This means that if you only add 5lbs of muscle you can burn an additional 20-25 lbs of fat a year doing nothing!

Decreased Risk of Osteoporosis

Regular training increases the density and hardness of the bones and thus strengthening you against osteoporosis.

Lowered Cholesterol

Exercie produces more HDL (good cholesterol while reducing the bad LDL cholesterol. This reduces among other things your chance of heart disease.
The Benefits of Isometrics provide all of those while at the same time;

Increasing your strength faster than any other form of training

 this is because it works the muscles more intensity and in a shorter space of time over conventional methods. In fact you can finish a workout in as little as ten minutes.

it requires no special equipment or a large commitment of time. You can do Isometric Training in your car while stuck in traffic, in the shower, even while reading this website.
