    Isometric exercises are not "static".

    Isometric, by definition, is static.

    TBM is correct. I think what Mr Mantis is referring to are the 'dynamic tension' exercises you find in lots of southern chinese forms and some Karate kata (where you move one or more limbs through a movement slowly, keeping them tense, sometimes whilst breathing in a certain way).

    I don't know what the scientific name for these types of exercises is.
    My guess is these are kind of strength training (though one much less effcient than modern weight training methods) that can be done anywhere, with no equipment, and simultaneously allow you to practice the little details of a particular technique.

    I'd be interested to know what you think of these types of exercises TBM.

    Muscle endurace is what you tell everyone you're working on, when even the weakest women at the gym can lift more than you.

    I suppose I mean "isotonic" as opposed to "isometric".
