    Dynamic Tension?

    I've been trying this one for a while and it seems good. Even 5 minutes a day of it shows benefits and alot of the resources say chance of injury is practically nill.

    Any opinions or advice?

    Its supposed to be like this.

    Here's another great resource for bodyweight strength training. There are great progressions to get anyone started regardless of fitness level.

    There is a review of that book on here in the review section. There also used to be a link on there where you could download it for free. I read it, and it wasn't too bad. They actually have a part 2 version of the book out now.

    But to sum it up for you: pushups, pull ups, and squats.

    Harry Wong has a great book on dynamic tension execrises. If that's what you're interested in, I strongly recommend it. Just don't let the cover put you off.

    I have used dynamic tension before mainly as a way of getting full body tension and to plug up any "leakages" as Pavel says. This is useful for exercises requiring full body tension, i.e. one arm pushups, overhead pressing, etc...

    From what I have read and experimented with you will not really get much stronger doing it, except for the benefit stated above. Eg. Just standing there tensing you leg muscles, wont build decent strength like squating or deadlifting will; there must be actual resistance.

    The convict conditioning book is good in that it shows logical progressions to work up to the big six. For example one arm pullups for many people are achievable if you work through logical progressions, not just trying to do it from the get go.

    @mrh80

    Would it be useful if I find my body so badly proportioned that normal exercises hurt underdeveloped muscle groups or worse prevent me from actually lifting at all.

    For example, my obliques are so underdeveloped compared to the middle part of my abs that I have a 26-27 waist.

    StepInCross,

    Firstly if dynamic tension is getting you the results you want then keep using them.

    For pain when exercising this could be due to existing injuries, doing the exercises wrong and/or muscle imbalances (ie. lots of pushups but no pulling exercises to balance things out). The FAQ section here is pretty good; focusing on compound movements rather than isolation exercises is probably best in your case. Start light and work your way up focusing on proper form at all times.

    Ultimately you should seek out expert instruction particularly being badly proportioned (whatever you mean by that), it may cost money but it is much better in the longer run for injury prevention, strength/size gains and addressing the particular issues you have now.

    Good Luck.

    My right tricep is much bigger than my right bicep. My left pec is much much bigger than my right. My lats are bigger in relation to my pecs etc.
