That’s the book, the exercises that Mike refers to are on page 40 &41. Page 24 has some “Towel Isometrics” just 3 but it doesn’t take much imagination to figure out additional isos that could be done with a towel or the PB.

I thought that Mike had written a step by step set of directions for the Commander set and posted it some time ago. If you can find the post you could copy past it and save it as a word file – for those that collect and save such things. If we ask nice he might even post it again.

Anyone else besides Mike and Benny using this set as part of their routine?

Better than my old post here is the pdf for How To Keep Fit & Like It by Arthur H. Steinhaus Published 1957 It is on page 40 & 41 but the pdf counts the cover so in the pdf it is page 42 & 43. I cut the page down to 100% for clearity.

Later editions of the Commander Set required a 7 to 10 second isometric contraction. And also recommended breathing throughout the exercises!

Yeah GB the towel exercises are great, in fact the entire Booklet is superb. I am not surpised bennyb that you like the Commander Set, I was told it was originaly for Navy SEALS (then called Frogmen; underwater demolition) and Navy special units. This booklet was written in 1957 and is better than most fitness books today. Hope this helps guys.

Hey dorfmeister,

Check the archives first and then ask a specific question if you have one.
