    Bad, because in MA you have to move, and isometrics only strengthen in the position they're held in.

    When, if ever, would the use of isometrics be appropriate? I mean pretty much all uses of a muscle require movement in any activity. Are they basically a waste of time?

    Mmm. Wrong.

    You keep confusing the kind of "work" muscles are capable of.

    Mantis,

    This has been annoying me for a while. The picture you have is actually of a monkey, not an ape.

    And I had to hold him in a bucket of bleach for 30 min. to make him white. There's no way I am going to be able to do that to an ape.

    Got any better ideas?

    What about isometrics for developing strength related to an increase in flexibilty ala Kurtz?

    I have the video and the book but I have not put in the required effort (yet) to draw any conclusions.

    Has anyone used these techniques and what were the results?
