Hello Everyone,

One of the questions that I am often asked about Isometrics relates to it's efficiency for enhancing muscle size. One man just asked me, "Can it or can't it build muscles?"

Obviously, what he is asking is if an Isometric routine can turn a man into a powerfully developed man without incorporating other forms of exercise.

The answer is YES!!! It certainly can.

For example, Years ago I had asked this same question to coach James Baley. Baley assured me that the answer is YES and that he himself had seen it a number of times. My own experience tells me that Isometrics are great for sculpting and shaping one's physique and that is precisely why Mike Dayton used bodybuilding poses performed Isometrically for the 'Chi' exercises in his course 'Chi Mind' control. This brings up a point, I did have a martial arts student/friend named David who was a tattoo artist that bought Mike Dayton's course in 1978 and followed it meticulously while he dieted and he lost an amazing amount of body fat while shaping an exceptional physique. In David's case, he told me that he did no other exercises at all. No push-ups, pull-ups, sit-ups...nothing...just Isometric Flexing that he did in a concentrated workout of about 20 minutes each morning and then repeating a great many of those exercises multiple times each day. He literally flexed his muscles throughout the day and his results were amazing. The key is to flood the muscles with highly oxygenated blood.
