Isometric exercises, also known as static strength training, involve muscular actions in which the length of the muscle does not change and there is no visible movement at the joint.
The skill of the week is static holds on the parallettes. We will work on holding different positions without movement for time. This type of training will work the entire body and transfer over directly to improve skills like the handstand, iron cross, ring dips, leg lifts, hollow holds, overhead squats, muscle ups…the list goes on. Static strength is difficult but also very rewarding to your training. See how long you can keep your feet off the ground!
