Isometric Training – New Video

Below is a new video tutorial that shows a homemade isometric training device.  The same device was discussed on the blog in early 2009 (here).  Within the original entry, you will also find links to several isometric books (full electronic books, free to view).

  1. This version of isometric equipment was amazing! Personally I would include a long bar to work on my Squating tecnique/strength ( which I will do!)

    Thanks again Ross for your amazing blog! :)

  2. I read through the preview to the Bruce Lee book linked to the original post and it struck me as amazing how much of what he was incorporating in his routines during the 1960’s and 70’s are now supported by scientific research.

    After some more reading I also noticed how much what he was doing resembles your (Ross’s) approach to fitness. Great minds think alike I suppose.

  3. Were did you get the high tension coils and how much tension do they supply?

    Thanks for the great idea!

  4. Awesome Ross.

    I am giving up my gym membership soon for a full train at home option and this is definately a must have tool.

  5. I’m going to start including isometrics as well. I’m playing around with the idea of using the straps from my suspension training system anchored in different ways for the purpose of isometrics.

  6. Hi Ross, many thanks for your creation of a brilliant piece of apparatus,im so pleased to have found your site, im 62 now ross spent most of my life in gyms, but this has given me all the exercises i need. many thanks for a wonderful idea. Phil.
