I like the way you always have that "sure you can" way of saying things in your articles. I really needed something to keep me motivated to do strength training. I know its good for me but sometimes I flake out because of boredom.
Now, I have no excuse. This change with the Isometric excercise infused into my regular strength routine will surely take it up a notch. I even did the core strenthening at my desk. Thanks for you the article and your suggestions, spot on!
I like what I am learning from this article. Holding the concentric contraction and alternating the count on the contraction as I am either midway in the exercise position or in the exercise position; this is effective and I can feel the intensity of the contraction and as the song goes "sure feels good". Makes me feel tighter. Only problem is, after I relax the contraction, the firm sensation disappears; I guess I got to keep working the concentrics. Thanks
I can still remember doing stretches when taking karatedo and my sensei walking up to me and simultataneouly screaming at me to "BREATHE!! BREATHE!!" while driving nikites (open hand finger strikes) into my stomach. GREAT TIMES.

Since I sit at a desk for 8 hours a day, this article gave me some ideas that I can incorporate. Thanks!
Thank you, Coach Dean. I sit at a desk all day- I will definitely be trying these!

HI, I have been doing some "flatten your belly" exercises for a while now and I can really feel in my belly. It's called a "Knee-up" exercise. A. Stand up straight, feet hip-width apart. Lift your right knee up to your chest, lower; then lift your left knee to your chest. B. As you plant your left foot, lift your right knee again, this time turing it out to the side. Lower and repaet with your left knee. Continue, alternating front and sides with both legs for 1 minutes. This can really help "flatten your belly!
