"Flex Arm Hang"

Today we are working on some isometric or “static” holds. We will be holding our bodies in one position for a set amount of time or until our muscles fatigue. Isometric holds are great at increasing muscular endurance, muscular strength, and toning the body. Another advantage of an isometric hold is that they are taxing on the central nervous system (CNS). We want to recruit as many muscle fibers as possible during these holds, we are engaging every muscle in our body to maintain the position. Isometric holds are fantastic whole body movements. Let’s see how long you can hold them today, so next time we go even longer!! If you start to shake, that means it’s working.
