    Did my ILIT: Impromptu Loadless Isometric Training 50 times before 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

    The doing my 1 set of 6 secs of Zero Tech Body only;

    1.SR PRESS - HIGH 1 set of 6-8 secs

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

    2.SR PRESS - MIDDLE Hold 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Holf 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

    3.SR PRESS - LOW 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Hold your hands interlinked below your navel. 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

    4.SR PULL - HIGH 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Hold your hands in a “monkey grip” above your head. Brace yourself. Once you are set, pull the hands apart with maximum force for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Muscles trained: Lats, triceps, grip

    5.SR PULL - MIDDLE 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Hold your hands in a “monkey grip” in front of you. Brace yourself. Once you are set, pull the hands apart with maximum force for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Muscles trained: Upper back, triceps, grip

    6.SR PULL - LOW 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Hold your hands in a “monkey grip” below your stomach (or behind your back). Brace yourself. Once you are set, pull the hands apart with maximum force for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Can also be performed with the hands behind the back. Muscles trained: Traps, shoulders, triceps, grip

    7.SR REAR PRESS 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Place your palms or fists together, behind your back. Your arms should be well bent. Brace yourself. Once you are set, press the palms or fists together as hard as you possibly can. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. A unilateral version can be performed with the hand on the hip. This variation might suit athletes with poor flexibility or shoulder issues. Muscles trained: Upper back, lats, biceps

    8.CHEST ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    With the bent arms diagonally downwards and the fists and arms tensed, brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the pectorals as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the back muscles. The fists do not need to touch. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise is similar to the most muscular (a.k.a. the crab) pose in bodybuilding. Muscles trained: Chest, lats, upperback, arms

    9.BACK ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    With the bent elbows drawn horizontally backwards and the fists and arms tensed, brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the pectorals as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the chest muscles. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. The elbows do not need to go behind the body-line for maximum contraction to take place. Muscles trained: Upper-back, lats, chest, arms

    10.SHOULDER ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    With the bent arms held overhead and the fists and arms tensed, brace yourself. Once you are set, push the arms back and contract the deltoids as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the lat muscles. The fists do not need to touch. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Muscles trained: Shoulders, traps, lats, upper-back, arms

    11.LAT ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    With the arms either side of your torso, spread the scapulae (shoulder-blades) as much as possible. Tense the arms and fists, and brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the lats as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the back and shoulder girdle. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise is similar to the lat spread pose in bodybuilding. Muscles trained: Lats, back, shoulders, arms

    12.SR ARM CURL/PRESS 1 set of 6-8 secs

    With your hands in front of your torso, place your palms together, with the top palm facing down and the lowest palm facing up. Brace yourself. Once you are set, press the hands together as hard as possible, trying to “curl” up with the lower palm, and “press” down with the upper palm. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. When the hold is completed, reverse arms and repeat. Muscles trained: Biceps (lower arm), triceps (upper arm)

    13.BICEPS ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lock your upper arms into position and bend the elbows at an acute angle. With the hands balled into fists, brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the biceps as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the triceps muscles. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Squeezing the fists hard during upper-body isotension drills increases contraction through a neurological process known as irradiation. Muscles trained: Biceps, triceps

    14.TRICEPS ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Extend your locked arms slightly behind your trunk, with the hands balled into fists. Brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the triceps as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the biceps muscles. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Squeezing the fists hard during upper-body isotension drills increases contraction through a neurological process known as irradiation. Muscles trained: Triceps, biceps

    15.FOREARM ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Extend your arms out from your torso, with the hands balled into fists. Brace yourself. Once you are set, squeeze your grip as hard as possible. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise is worthwhile because a strong grip irradiates to the arm and torso muscles during other isotensions. Over multiple sets, this exercise can be performed with the arms held out in different directions; up, down, out. Muscles trained: Forearms

    16.SR ABDOMINAL PRESS I 1 set of 6-8 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

    17.ABDOMINAL ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Extend your arms in front of you, with the hands clasped or balled into fists. Brace yourself. Once you are set, exhale fully and curl your trunk forward, contracting the abdominals as hard as possible. Hold for 6-8 seconds. After the first full exhalation, breathe naturally throughout the exercise. For this movement the antagonists (the spinal erectors) do not need to fire heavily, due to the limited range-of-motion of the trunk. Muscles trained: Abdominals

    18.SR ABDOMINAL PRESS II 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lie on the floor. Bring your knees up and bend forwards, placing the palms on the knees. Brace yourself. Once you are set, press forward 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

    19.SPINAL ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lie prone on the floor, with your hands behind your head and your legs stretched out. Brace yourself. Once you are set, raise your chest and legs off the ground, contracting the spinal muscles as hard as possible. Hold for 20-45 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. For this movement the antagonists (the abdominals) do not need to fire heavily, due to the limited range-of-motion of the trunk. Muscles trained: Spinal erectors

    20.SR THIGH CURL/PRESS I 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lie supine on the floor. Raise your knees up above your hips, with the legs bent. Loop one ankle above the other, and brace yourself. Once you are set, push down hard with the top leg, while simultaneously pushing up 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: Quadriceps (lower leg), hamstrings (upper leg)

    21.SR THIGH CURL/PRESS II 1 set of 6-8 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)

    22.QUADRICEPS ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Hold on to something to keep you steady if you need to, and extend one leg out in front of you. Keeping the leg locked (or slightly kinked), brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the quadriceps as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the hamstrings. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can be performed bilaterally, or seated. Muscles trained: Quadriceps, hamstrings

    23.HAMSTRING ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Raise one leg off the ground behind you, holding on to something to keep you steady if necessary. Keeping the leg bent around 90 degrees, brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the hamstring as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the quadriceps. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can be performed prone. Muscles trained: Hamstrings, quadriceps

    24.CALF ISOTENSION 6 sets of 6-8 secs

    Raise your heels several inches from the ground and brace yourself. (It might prove helpful to hold onto something.) Once you are set, contract the calves as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the tibialis (shin muscles). Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can be performed unilaterally, or seated. Muscles trained: Calves, tibialis

    25.SR NECK PRESS - REAR 6 sets of 6-8 secs

    Standing up with the back straight. Cup your hands behind your neck, and brace yourself. Once you are set, push your head back for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the hold. Avoid straining on any neck exercise. Muscles trained: Posterior neck

    26.SR NECK PRESS - FRONT 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Standing up, and place your palms, fingers spread, on your forehead. Brace yourself. Once you are set, push your head forward for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the hold. Avoid straining on any neck exercise. Muscles trained: Anterior neck

    27.SR NECK PRESS - LATERAL 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Standing up and place your palm against your temple. Brace yourself. Once you are set, push your head sideways for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the hold. Repeat on the opposite side. Avoid straining on any neck exercise. Muscles trained: Lateral neck

    Then I did The Burn Count Day 2

    Front Squat Middle Position;

    Hypertrophy: 2 sets of 30 secs

    Bent-Row Middle Position:

    Hypertrophy: 2 sets of 30 secs

    Chest Press

    With the bent arms diagonally downwards and the fists and arms tensed, brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the pectorals as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the back muscles. The fists do not need to touch. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise is similar to the most muscular (a.k.a. the crab) pose in bodybuilding. Muscles trained: Chest, lats, upperback, arms

    9.BACK ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    With the bent elbows drawn horizontally backwards and the fists and arms tensed, brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the pectorals as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the chest muscles. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. The elbows do not need to go behind the body-line for maximum contraction to take place. Muscles trained: Upper-back, lats, chest, arms

    10.SHOULDER ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    With the bent arms held overhead and the fists and arms tensed, brace yourself. Once you are set, push the arms back and contract the deltoids as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the lat muscles. The fists do not need to touch. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Muscles trained: Shoulders, traps, lats, upper-back, arms

    11.LAT ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    With the arms either side of your torso, spread the scapulae (shoulder-blades) as much as possible. Tense the arms and fists, and brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the lats as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the back and shoulder girdle. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise is similar to the lat spread pose in bodybuilding. Muscles trained: Lats, back, shoulders, arms

    12.SR ARM CURL/PRESS 1 set of 6-8 secs

    With your hands in front of your torso, place your palms together, with the top palm facing down and the lowest palm facing up. Brace yourself. Once you are set, press the hands together as hard as possible, trying to “curl” up with the lower palm, and “press” down with the upper palm. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. When the hold is completed, reverse arms and repeat. Muscles trained: Biceps (lower arm), triceps (upper arm)

    13.BICEPS ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lock your upper arms into position and bend the elbows at an acute angle. With the hands balled into fists, brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the biceps as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the triceps muscles. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Squeezing the fists hard during upper-body isotension drills increases contraction through a neurological process known as irradiation. Muscles trained: Biceps, triceps

    14.TRICEPS ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Extend your locked arms slightly behind your trunk, with the hands balled into fists. Brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the triceps as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the biceps muscles. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Squeezing the fists hard during upper-body isotension drills increases contraction through a neurological process known as irradiation. Muscles trained: Triceps, biceps

    15.FOREARM ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Extend your arms out from your torso, with the hands balled into fists. Brace yourself. Once you are set, squeeze your grip as hard as possible. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise is worthwhile because a strong grip irradiates to the arm and torso muscles during other isotensions. Over multiple sets, this exercise can be performed with the arms held out in different directions; up, down, out. Muscles trained: Forearms

    16.SR ABDOMINAL PRESS I 1 set of 6-8 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

    17.ABDOMINAL ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Extend your arms in front of you, with the hands clasped or balled into fists. Brace yourself. Once you are set, exhale fully and curl your trunk forward, contracting the abdominals as hard as possible. Hold for 6-8 seconds. After the first full exhalation, breathe naturally throughout the exercise. For this movement the antagonists (the spinal erectors) do not need to fire heavily, due to the limited range-of-motion of the trunk. Muscles trained: Abdominals

    18.SR ABDOMINAL PRESS II 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lie on the floor. Bring your knees up and bend forwards, placing the palms on the knees. Brace yourself. Once you are set, press forward 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

    19.SPINAL ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lie prone on the floor, with your hands behind your head and your legs stretched out. Brace yourself. Once you are set, raise your chest and legs off the ground, contracting the spinal muscles as hard as possible. Hold for 20-45 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. For this movement the antagonists (the abdominals) do not need to fire heavily, due to the limited range-of-motion of the trunk. Muscles trained: Spinal erectors

    20.SR THIGH CURL/PRESS I 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lie supine on the floor. Raise your knees up above your hips, with the legs bent. Loop one ankle above the other, and brace yourself. Once you are set, push down hard with the top leg, while simultaneously pushing up 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: Quadriceps (lower leg), hamstrings (upper leg)

    21.SR THIGH CURL/PRESS II 1 set of 6-8 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)

    22.QUADRICEPS ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Hold on to something to keep you steady if you need to, and extend one leg out in front of you. Keeping the leg locked (or slightly kinked), brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the quadriceps as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the hamstrings. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can be performed bilaterally, or seated. Muscles trained: Quadriceps, hamstrings

    23.HAMSTRING ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Raise one leg off the ground behind you, holding on to something to keep you steady if necessary. Keeping the leg bent around 90 degrees, brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the hamstring as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the quadriceps. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can be performed prone. Muscles trained: Hamstrings, quadriceps

    24.CALF ISOTENSION 6 sets of 6-8 secs

    Raise your heels several inches from the ground and brace yourself. (It might prove helpful to hold onto something.) Once you are set, contract the calves as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the tibialis (shin muscles). Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can be performed unilaterally, or seated. Muscles trained: Calves, tibialis

    25.SR NECK PRESS - REAR 6 sets of 6-8 secs

    Standing up with the back straight. Cup your hands behind your neck, and brace yourself. Once you are set, push your head back for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the hold. Avoid straining on any neck exercise. Muscles trained: Posterior neck

    26.SR NECK PRESS - FRONT 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Standing up, and place your palms, fingers spread, on your forehead. Brace yourself. Once you are set, push your head forward for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the hold. Avoid straining on any neck exercise. Muscles trained: Anterior neck

    27.SR NECK PRESS - LATERAL 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Standing up and place your palm against your temple. Brace yourself. Once you are set, push your head sideways for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the hold. Repeat on the opposite side. Avoid straining on any neck exercise. Muscles trained: Lateral neck

    Then I did The Burn Count Day 1

    I did The Burn Count Day 2

    Front Squat Middle Position;

    Hypertrophy: 2 sets of 30 secs

    Bent-Row Middle Position:

    Hypertrophy: 2 sets of 30 secs

    Chest Press

    Hypertrophy: 2 sets of 30 secs

    Then I did 20 push-ups.

    I didn't have enough time to do my full routine or my proper warm up, with only doing the 1kg dumbbell 30 reps of each exercise before the main routine because of waking up late and youtube & was going to do the other stuff later, but felt so tired after the day I didn't bother as was feeling too tired. I hope to do better tomorrow.

Once you are set, contract the triceps as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the biceps muscles. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. Squeezing the fists hard during upper-body isotension drills increases contraction through a neurological process known as irradiation. Muscles trained: Triceps, biceps

    15.FOREARM ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Extend your arms out from your torso, with the hands balled into fists. Brace yourself. Once you are set, squeeze your grip as hard as possible. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise is worthwhile because a strong grip irradiates to the arm and torso muscles during other isotensions. Over multiple sets, this exercise can be performed with the arms held out in different directions; up, down, out. Muscles trained: Forearms

    16.SR ABDOMINAL PRESS I 1 set of 6-8 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

    17.ABDOMINAL ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Extend your arms in front of you, with the hands clasped or balled into fists. Brace yourself. Once you are set, exhale fully and curl your trunk forward, contracting the abdominals as hard as possible. Hold for 6-8 seconds. After the first full exhalation, breathe naturally throughout the exercise. For this movement the antagonists (the spinal erectors) do not need to fire heavily, due to the limited range-of-motion of the trunk. Muscles trained: Abdominals

    18.SR ABDOMINAL PRESS II 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lie on the floor. Bring your knees up and bend forwards, placing the palms on the knees. Brace yourself. Once you are set, press forward 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

    19.SPINAL ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lie prone on the floor, with your hands behind your head and your legs stretched out. Brace yourself. Once you are set, raise your chest and legs off the ground, contracting the spinal muscles as hard as possible. Hold for 20-45 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. For this movement the antagonists (the abdominals) do not need to fire heavily, due to the limited range-of-motion of the trunk. Muscles trained: Spinal erectors

    20.SR THIGH CURL/PRESS I 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Lie supine on the floor. Raise your knees up above your hips, with the legs bent. Loop one ankle above the other, and brace yourself. Once you are set, push down hard with the top leg, while simultaneously pushing up 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: Quadriceps (lower leg), hamstrings (upper leg)

    21.SR THIGH CURL/PRESS II 1 set of 6-8 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)

    22.QUADRICEPS ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Hold on to something to keep you steady if you need to, and extend one leg out in front of you. Keeping the leg locked (or slightly kinked), brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the quadriceps as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the hamstrings. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can be performed bilaterally, or seated. Muscles trained: Quadriceps, hamstrings

    23.HAMSTRING ISOTENSION 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Raise one leg off the ground behind you, holding on to something to keep you steady if necessary. Keeping the leg bent around 90 degrees, brace yourself. Once you are set, contract the hamstring as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the quadriceps. Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can be performed prone. Muscles trained: Hamstrings, quadriceps

    24.CALF ISOTENSION 6 sets of 6-8 secs

    Raise your heels several inches from the ground and brace yourself. (It might prove helpful to hold onto something.) Once you are set, contract the calves as hard as possible, stabilizing the movement with the tibialis (shin muscles). Hold for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the exercise. This exercise can be performed unilaterally, or seated. Muscles trained: Calves, tibialis

    25.SR NECK PRESS - REAR 6 sets of 6-8 secs

    Standing up with the back straight. Cup your hands behind your neck, and brace yourself. Once you are set, push your head back for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the hold. Avoid straining on any neck exercise. Muscles trained: Posterior neck

    26.SR NECK PRESS - FRONT 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Standing up, and place your palms, fingers spread, on your forehead. Brace yourself. Once you are set, push your head forward for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the hold. Avoid straining on any neck exercise. Muscles trained: Anterior neck

    27.SR NECK PRESS - LATERAL 1 set of 6-8 secs

    Standing up and place your palm against your temple. Brace yourself. Once you are set, push your head sideways for 6-8 seconds. Breathe naturally throughout the hold. Repeat on the opposite side. Avoid straining on any neck exercise. Muscles trained: Lateral neck

    Then I did The Promethean

    Deadlift Middle Position;

    Strength/Hypertrophy: 6 sets of 6 secs

    Bicep Curls Middle Position:

    Strength/Hypertrophy: 6 sets of 6 secs

    Shoulder/Over Head Press Middle Position:

    Strength/Hypertrophy: 6 sets of 6 secs

    Then I did 20 push-ups, to then doing a lot of Dumbbell swinging, shadow boxing, pretend sword & shield play & pretend skip roping.

    Then after that I did the Heavy Hands Isometrics
    Feel it is good, though I need to work on it more to make sure I'm doing it all right especially with the hand pressing & moving in the right finger position.

    I did some push-ups again today finally, but I did really bad. I finished way below my old x50 benchmark.

    After a lot of relapse, poor sleep, not eating that well, and a decent workout break I guess it stands to reason I'd flop.

    I think I did one set of 14 and one set of about 10-12. I don't remember exactly. This is very poor because I used to do two sets of 25 daily as a standard. However I also tried to do them slower and deeper than I think I was doing before to learn better form.

    don't worry. I also falled a bit back, when I didn't do the workout because of private problems. But you get back to your progress quickly if you continue and don't give up.

    I did The Burn Count Day 1

    Deadlift Middle Position;

    Hypertrophy: 2 sets of 30 secs

    Bicep Curls Middle Position:

    Hypertrophy: 2 sets of 30 secs

    Shoulder Overhead Press Middle Position:

    Hypertrophy: 2 sets of 30 secs

    I was in a massive rush this morning, as I had a PT workshop to go to, where I didbt do my extra stuff (including push-ups) outside from the Dumbbell warm ups & felt like I rushed it and didn't do it properly.

    Then I went to my pt course and did a lot of exercises that was suppose to show us how to train our clients. Then after the whole day, feeling exhausted, I was surprisingly feeling bumped up where I did the isometric routine again as well as the 20 push-ups.

    It was a good course & did over 200 active minutes during the whole day.

    Bicep Curls Middle Position:

    Shoulder/Over Head Press Middle Position:

    Then I did 20 push-ups

    Same as yesterday, I didn't have enough time as of my workshop. So I only did the dumbbell warm up version of my main routine, with a few quick swing movements to get my body ready & the main routine. Though with having a lot of physical activity from the workshop, so I'm not bothered.

    & the workshop was very interesting, learnt more of powerlifting moves of Barbell Snatch & Clean & jerk, which I need to work on my practical test.
