Isometric Exercises At Home…https://www.liveanabolic.com
You don’t need equipment to be able to build muscle at home. That is why I am going to give you my 5 best isometric exercises at home with bodyweight only. Make sure to stick around to the end, and I will show you how to do one of these exercises to avoid pain if you have bad knees. Isometric exercise is holding your muscle in a static and contracted position against another object. This can be really difficult if you put enough effort into it, and using your mind muscle connection will help you get benefits from this isometric workout. These isometric exercises are going to be time-based. I chose these 5 exercises because they work all of our main muscle groups. Let’s get started with these 5 best isometric exercises at home.
Exercise #1: PRAYER SQUEEZE. Put your hands together as hard as you can in the middle of your chest. Do this for about 15-30 seconds. When you do this really hard, you tend to hold your breath. Make sure to focus on breathing in and out throughout this exercise. This exercise is working your chest and shoulder in this isometric exercise.
Exercise #2: SQUAT. This is the best lower body exercise whether you use equipment or just your bodyweight. Get down in the squat position, and hold it for 15-30 seconds. Your resistance is gravity, so similar to a wall sit in this exercise. If you need to make this more difficult, hold the squat for more time.
Exercise #3: SELF ARM WRESTLING. This is an exercise that will target our biceps and triceps at the same time, and you are going to work one arm at a time. You are going to try and pull your arm up, and push down on your arm with your other hand. Make sure to switch and do both sides.
Exercise #4: PLANK. This is going to be a static plank, as opposed to the dynamic planks I show in my other videos. You can do this in push up position, or you can do a low plank on your elbows. Really squeeze your abs and core in this exercise to get the most out of this isometric exercise.
Exercise #5: BAT WING. It can be hard to work your back muscles when doing isometric exercises, so this exercise is going to engage your upper back and core. You can do this on a couch or cushioned chair. Put your elbows on the couch, walk your legs out, and do a reverse plank position. Keep your back off the cushions, bring your chest up, and this will force you to engage your back.
