... unlike any other method. As an aspiring strongman Isometrics are key in the realm of super human feats such hammer levering, bending steel bars and ripping phonebooks. Each feat requires an isometric contraction.

The section on breathing is worth the price of the book. If you don't want to purchase anymore equipment that ends up in your closet, this is the book for you.

... become a cornerstone of my life. I use the exercises daily and feel better than I have in years. It's more than just an exercise book, it's a path.

Because of my high regard for PYTP, I had very high expectations for Isometric Power Revolution. Well, again, Mr. Peterson FAR exceeded my expectations. He does more than just show you how to do the exercises (which he does very cleary), but teaches you everything you could ever want to know about this misunderstood form of exercise. He also includes chapters on motivation (worth the price of the book alone), diet and a concise history of Isometrics that is really quite fascinating.

If you've been frustrated by the mainstream treadmill and iron types of exercise, or just want to try something that is FUN and DELIVERS RESULTS, order either of these books. Better yet, order them both. They will change your life! John Peterson is a great man, providing great information!

... greatest potential.

John Peterson consistently does this through all of his publications.Coupled with his remarkable website and forum(he is such a class act with impeccable integrity),you have one stop shopping for your Physical Culture needs and I would argue dynamic growth in all areas of your life,as we take travel this wonderful journey called life.

What is it that truly marks Isometric Power Revolution for greatness(it already is a classic and will be three thousand years from now-and longer)?For one he clearly illustrates and explains the exercises.This is a hallmark of his publications,everything is very clear and concise leaving no room for error.How many people have been frustrated by not being able to follow routines marginally articulated in a publication,not a problem here.

He characteristicly has stories from the past.Stories that bring alive again this oft forgotten Physicul Culture gem-isometrics.You will read about remarkable feats across the ages.Breaking chains,pulling metal bars apart,even the ability,as with the Mighty Atom,to bite through steel.He gives a very comprehensive history and in doing so really gets you to understand the importance of this practise.As with all of John's publications,you do not need fancy gym memberships or strange and cumbersome apparatus,these exercise's can be done in the confines of your own home or in the yard,etc...

If I were going to recommend two books in Physical Culture that are a must in every library(these are the only two you will ever need)they would be,Pushing Yourself to Power,and Isometric Power Revolution.These are the guides,the true path to greatness.

This brings me to my next point,Empowernment.John's publications really get you thinking.They are cleary articulated,creative,full of historic refrences and John's wonderful wisdom,and full of possibilty.You will love doing these exercises and then come to a point where they become you.When they become you,you start to see the full possibilty that you have as you move through life.Your creative and instinctual processes are awakened and come to be.Other people will notice this and feel the magnetism of who and what you are and have become.This is the highest art of any publication,to bring to the table possibility.In doing so,we each that pick up one of these books are empowered and truly on the path to greatness....

... are either not discussed by the mass fitness media or bad information is passed on. This book will teach you the value and importance of Isometric exercise. It will explain how to safely put Isometrics to work for you in your life. It will teach you proper technique and execution. It is by far a safer, more productive and result producing way of working out for most people then what they are currently doing or being offered! The best part is that once you own this book there is nothing you need to buy ever again to work out. You can do these exercises's any where and most can be done standing up or sitting down. This book is just as valuable to an athlete as it is a couch potato! The information in this book will allow you to transform yourself or take your game to the next level! Get this book!!!

I got this book a couple of weeks ago along with "Pushing Yourself to Power" and "Powerflex". I was interested in this type of workout after reading "The Miracle Seven", which ...

... is also by John Peterson and follows a similar theme.

I must say that I am both an avid reader and and equally avid fitness/bodybuilder (in the layman sense). The results I have gained from these bokks are far beyond what I expected. I have been lifting for around years or so, and have done every type of workout routine on the planet. But now that I am 41, my body is a little beat up, and heavy days in the gym make me pretty sore and tired for a couple of days.

This type of training has allowed my body to become stronger, more defined and more balanced in an extremely short timespan, especially compared to the other routines I have used. Not only that, but I have an enormous amount of energy. I now do these workouts 7 days a week and feel a lot more energetic without the aches.

The closest routine I have seen and tried to this is "Static Contraction Training" by Peter Sisco (Sisco also has a couple of companion books for his system and I have them all). I was a big fan of Sisco's when his books first came out. As I read them cover to cover, I was sure they would work because they made so much sense. However, I did not get near, if any, the results I hoped for. I ended up drastically overtrained after 3 weeks, and had no gains to speak of.

I think John Peterson's way probably works so well for me because it does not involve the stress to the joints that the gym does.

I wish I had found these books when I fist started lifting. I'd have reached my goals 16 years ago. But then again, I probably would not have listened because I was younger and a beginner, and I believed all of the hype that the big guys in the gym said, along with the slick muscle magazines (supplement catalogs).

There are plenty of people that still subscribe to that kind of mentality, that you must "lift like the big guys to get big". Well, I also want to run fast, but I don't ask a racehorse. Just because a guy is big does not mean he knows why he is, or that he could not have gotten that built in 20% of the time.

Unfortunately for the people that discount John Peterson without giving a solid, real try, they may pass up one of the best techniques they will find (at least without steroids and pain).

For the independent critical thinker that wants to get built, defined, strong and satisfied, and has that nagging feeling when he hits the gym that, "Man, I having been coming here for a year, and I look the same as when I started. I must not be training enough, or too much. Maybe I need to go talk to that big guy over there."; well, these books are for you. Quit jumping around from routine to routine, asking the wrong people, and having to move around carefully after heavy leg and chest day.

Do something for yourself, by yourself. Something you will not regret.

... to learn, no equipment required, can be done just about anywhere. Just put in the effort. One of the shoulder exercises had an incidental effect of correcting my formerly slightly stooped posture, and my bearing is staight and proud. It feels good to bring strength and health by natural means. I've tried weights and machines. This is the best because your attention must be engaged and focused. I'm 62 and loving every minute of life.
