One of the most neglected areas of strength is Isometric Training. The reason for this is there are no fancy exercise gadgets to sell you like magazines and other giant companies want you to do. Isometric Training deals with using your own body to build a strong foundation so that you can experience permanent strength and conditioning gains. A lot of the legends we read about in “old school” muscle magazines used this style of training because it was so effective and actually WORKED! So if you are looking for a way to develop your conditioning and strength, I highly suggest you use Todd’s Isometrics Strength Training Program.

Tailor the above recommendations to your personal needs and lifestyle. If you’re a vegetarian drop the bacon and steak, but keep the whey protein and eggs. If you have an injury that prevents you from heavy weightlifting, move as much as you can in the way that you can. There are no studies out there which can tell you exactly what will happen if you do X and Y, but not Z. And I certainly can’t tell you either. Don’t be afraid of self-education – that’s how I learned all this – and embrace the idea of conducting your own experiment and being your own test subject. Incorporate as many of the recommendations above as you’re comfortable with, consult your doctor, and track your results.
