Easy Isometric Workout

Posted on 04. Oct, 2010 in Fitness

Hold It Right There!

You’re going to love this: One way to get a slimmer figure is by simply standing still. It’s a strength-training style called isometrics, and it’s a great way to sculpt and tone your body.

Here’s how it works: Instead of lifting and lowering your body or a weight, you hold yourself in a fixed spot.  It creates definition while strengthens the smaller muscles and muscle fibers that have to work harder to keep you stabilized.

Do this total-body workout three days a week. Starting with the first exercise, hold the position for 60 seconds, rest for 30 seconds, and then repeat the exercise three to five more times.
