Recently, I have been incorporating some isometric exercises in my workout with great results. (at least I think its from the isos) In the last two weeks I've been able to put an extra 35 lbs on the bench and I moved up an extra ten on the dumb bell curl...
the exercises I like are the chest expansion, box lift, etc..
I was wondering if anyone else works out with these? if so what kind of exercises do you do?

Isometrics intensely rock.
If I didn't do other physical stuff, my workout would probably involve nothing but. In conjunction with other stuff, however, I use the technique sparingly. They wipe me the -f- out.
I do the exercises which don't involve a spotter. Dip, shrug, leg press, bicep curl etc.

I guess one could do it with just about any movement. Some are logistically easier than others. There's a whole creed devoted to this. It has many valid points.
Do a google search for Pete Sisco and the books he's written. Her'e's one.

I have Power Factor Training by Sisco and Little.... it's pretty good, but I didn't like the idea of strong range partials.

I've been lifting most of my life. It's one of the reasons why in a 2 month period, I can gain 20lbs.
Since I started BJJ and now Judo, which emphasizes aliveness in training, I have dropped lifting. I'm just too damn tired training 4 to 5 times a week.
Not to forget, when I lift, I feel slower, react slower, and lose flexiablity.
Would love to know everyone else's experiences.

I found one thing out. When doing weight lifting, I did get strong and put on muscle mass. But I lost flexibility mostly, I didn't see a direct impact on my speed, but then again I wasn't testing it. Also, weight lifting would negatively impact my ability to do bodyweight exercises and calisthenics. When doing calisthenics, I find that I still gain strength, but also flexibility, agility and all around athleticism and muscular endurance. Plus doing the positively impacts my weight lifting, just not nearly as quickly as lifting itself does. Add to that the fact that I enjoy doing the bodyweight stuff more, and I've recently switched back to bodyweight from weight lifting (and oh hell am I sore).

It's kinda related, I love being in the 220's. At 270lbs, it is hard to find clothes that fit. Not to mention I just got in the way, standing still.
