    I'm getting ready to start a new training routine called "Static Contraction". If you guys want when I'm done I could write an article for McDojo.com on my findings to let everyone know if it's worth it or not. Just an idea.

    You probly saw my post on ADCC about it. Basically the principal is around holding 30-100% more weight than your 1 rep max on a given exercise at the near lockout position, or full contraction position of the movement between 15-30 seconds. This exerts maximum force for a limited amount of time at the strongest point of the lift. The idea partially came from the comparison between sprinters and distance runners. Sprinters exert maximum power for a very short amount of time(10 seconds or so for a 100 meter dash) and look at their leg muscles, huge and powerful. Distance runners go and go and go and go for a long period of time and they are typically very skinny with almost no build at all. From what I've read so far the results of recent tests in the exercises are phenomenal, so I figured I might as well see if it can help me in any way. The book I have is called "Static Contraction Training" by Peter Sisco and John R. Little. You can read exerpts from the book at amazon.com. There's a picture in there of a guy leg pressing 2000+ pounds during a static contraction. That's unreal. :)
