    Did my ILIT: Impromptu Loadless Isometric Training for both before and after my workout

    Which are;

    1. LOWER LEG ISOTENSION Tense the calves and lower legs hard. (It can be tough to get the knack of this, at first; lifting the heels half an inch off the ground will help.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    2. THIGH ISOTENSION While standing upright, tense the quadriceps and hamstrings hard. The legs can be either locked, or bent. (You can even perform this seated.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    3. GLUTEAL ISOTENSION After the thigh tension, tense and squeeze the gluteal muscles together as hard as possible, without moving the hips or thighs. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    4. STOMACH ISOTENSION Smoothly exhale; once the air has left your lungs and the stomach is drawn in, then tense the abdominals hard. There is no need to bend forward. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    5. LATERAL TORSO ISOTENSION Pull the shoulders down in their sockets and tense the lats (under the armpits) hard. You do not need to spread your shoulders out for this drill. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    6. PEC ISOTENSION Pull the shoulders forward in their sockets and tense and squeeze the chest muscles hard. (You don’t need to move your arms much.) 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    7. ARM ISOTENSION Holding the arms slightly bent or straight, tense the biceps and triceps hard. You also have the option of making a fist, and tensing your grip. 1 set of 1-2 seconds

    5 DRILLS (B)

    1. SR press (middle) 5 sets of 6 secs

    Hold your hands interlinked in front of you. Brace yourself. Once you are set, press the hands together with maximum force for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise.
    Muscles trained: Chest, biceps

    2. Door horizontal row 5 sets of 6 secs

    Stand perpendicular to a sturdy doorway, and buttress your forearm against the wall. With your other hand, grip the inner doorframe. Brace the body. Once you are set, pull hard backwards for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise.
    Muscles trained: Upper back, biceps, grip

    3. Door lateral raise 5 sets of 6 secs

    Stand in a sturdy doorway, and place the backs of the hands on the inner frames. Brace the body. Once you are set, press hard sideways for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can also be performed unilaterally, using the non-working hand to brace against the doorframe. Muscles trained: Shoulders

    4. SR abdominal press I 5 sets of 6 secs

    Bend forwards, placing the palms on the knees. Brace yourself. Once you are set, press down hard on the knees. Try to use mostly abdominal force, thinking of the arms only as struts to transmit that force. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise.
    Muscles trained: Abdominals, hip flexors, chest, triceps

    5. SR thigh curl/press II 5 sets of 6 secs

    Lie prone on the floor. Bend your legs until the shins are approximately vertical. Loop one ankle behind the other, and brace yourself. Once you are set, push back hard with the front leg, while simultaneously pulling hard with the lower leg. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. When the hold is completed, reverse legs and repeat.
    Muscles trained: Hamstrings (rear leg), quadriceps (front leg)

    Didn't have enough time to do the kettlebell exercises, so I didn't do them, but feel annoyed that I didn't maje the time for it, because I could of, so will work on that more to not fall into being lazy on that.

    I've been doing 100 pushups after every time I relapse to at least get something productive. It's not very hard though since I don't do them all in one set so I'll probably up it to something higher and/or harder.
