    Did my ILIT: Impromptu Loadless Isometric Training 3 times, 1 before my workout then after it & before my breakfast, I didn't do my Kettlbell swings as I had something urgent to do.

    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

    First day icing the Iso-Trainer:

    Woth doing this routine with my own twist


    Which are;

    Deadlift Bottom Position;
    Strength: 3 set of 3 secs
    Strength/Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 6 secs
    Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 21 secs

    Zercher Squat Bottom Position:
    Strength: 3 set of 3 secs
    Strength/Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 6 secs
    Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 21 secs

    Shoulder/Over Head Press Bottom Position:
    Strength: 3 set of 3 secs
    Strength/Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 6 secs
    Hypertrophy: 3 sets of 21 secs

    So trying to figure out the Zercher Squat, I feel I'm unintentionally using my back to pull on my Iso-trainer more than my legs, so I need to work on that more.

    Also starting from tomorrow I'm going to start of with the squat first to see how that goes for me, as it is the hardest exercise for me, so want to see how it goes in a leg, pull, push order
