    make sure you don't start off with isometrics in your routine. the best time to do isos is after your regular workout... (e.g. stretches, arobics, etc...) i typically do isos in the very end of workout when i'm tired.

    doing iso without proper warm-up is bad news for the body but best after workout...

    Hmm. I have almost always done isometrics in the beginning of a workout. I find they warm me up. I should qualify, I stretch first then Isometrics.

    There's nothing inherently intense about them, yo. You could be torched and incapable of another productive set, or you could stop short for warm-ups sake. Depends on how far you consciously wanna push it.

    I do these mainly for my neck... in lieu of bridging.

    This thread has given me some good ideas to expand on espcially as far as leg abduction and adduction.
