  • Isometric/Isotonics in 12 Week Press

    Recently bought the 12 Week Press template in search of a Bodyweight Press. Obviously, strength templates taper after the Pivot with some overload exercises like pin pressing, but I was wondering if anyone on here has tried doing Isometric/Isotonic holds before and did it work well?

    I am considering replacing a few of the supplemental Pressing slots with 3x2-3 of a Press starting on pins at shoulder height and doing an isometric hold against another set of pins at forehead height for 8-12s on each and using a fairly heavy weight.

    Nobody, really?

      I don't find holds to be particularly helpful in most training, and with a first run through the template I would not add them in. I have used them for particular reasons, for limited times, but I suspect that the pressing variations in this template are sufficient for most trainees.

        Thank you for the response. I'm probably getting ahead of myself, but I'll just stick to the template. Might do some experimenting down the road though.
