    This is what I meant by Bao being correct:

    You don't get rapid strength gain from isolation.

    That isn't specific enough to be correct.

    It really is moot, we're all just being particular.

    Isometric contractions are used for that reason. It focuses on strengthening and isolation of a specific muscle. It doesn't make your core lift any stronger though as it doesn't help strengthen the stabilizing muscles and tendons associated with core lifts.
