I'm real happy to have stumbled across it, there's not much on the web I could find easily. I definitely need to get a resistance band just for doing those. Have a basement jack just to the side of my horse stall mats that is perfect for an anchor point.That in-place running article was interesting. Thanks for sharing.
I have purple rubberband and horse stall mat in my garage. Gotta try someday.I'm real happy to have stumbled across it, there's not much on the web I could find easily.

Martin, can you share the source of the isometric plan you're working on? I've been interested in this for quite some time and it may help me in rehabbing the shoulder injury.
I'm on it...sort of. My basement is real cramped and terrible lighting. Maybe tomorrow AM I'll get to work early enough to demo one or two exercises.I saw your pics in the blog, but i would love to see some video of this stuff at some point. It’s all very interesting, and I’m just starting to scratch the surface of it so it’s a little hard for me to envision at times.
Here ya go:Awesome!I understand though, i lift on an enclosed 2nd story back porch and filming there is horrendous.
Video description of how exactly this approach looks in practice. I neglected to mention timing counts for rest periods. The breakdown is 10 seconds steady, 10 seconds pulse, 20 seconds to rest and get back in position. HIIT intervals = 12 seconds effort, 30 seconds rest x 2
Thank you, really appreciate the response. I saw your video and found it very impressive. I'll shoot you a PM with the rundown on my shoulder when I get a little more time.Hmmmm. To be honest this is 100% self made based on previous use of iso and a lot of reading.
Feel like I have a pretty good idea of the sweet spot or at least where the outer edges lie in any given direction.
A lot of it is self observation particularly where it failed to work in the past, crossed with study results, which gave me the best idea for contraction time, number of repeats, muscle length.
I combined that with the need to incorporate some form of expedient glucose depletion to arrive at the exact formula.
Using it for injury repair might require a different approach, esp if combined in part with an in-progress program or other ongoing strength/endurance training.
I will say also that shoulders are far and away the trickiest to train simply for the incredible ROM it can perform.
I'm more than happy to let you know what I would do with the same symptoms if you give me the run-down.
