Hello Everyone,

Since I have taken up Isometrics as my foundation for the last two and a half years I have received quite a few e-mails asking me if I still perform Push-Ups, Sit-Ups, Squats, etc. and whether or not I still believe in them the way I once did.

The answer is what I have been saying all along that I absolutely do practice those exercises but not in the nearly the volume that I once did.

Don't misunderstand, there was nothing wrong with the high volume that I did but I would do it differently then if I had known what I know now.

So here is what I would do...

If I were in my teens today and knowing what I now know, I would use the Atlas exercises for sculpting my muscles just like I did then with one major difference...I'd incorporate a weight vest.

That difference means I would have been doing Atlas I, II, & III (rather than just #1) and working from sets of 15 to 25 and then adding a little more weight to the vest and starting the process all over at 15 again and working to 25 and continue until I got to where I would have wanted to stay. At that point, I would have worked out a maintenance program.

For strength, I would have done Power Belt Isometrics. The combination of Strength, Flexibility, and Endurance from such a program combining Atlas style exercises with Power Belt Isometrics would have been unreal. And the truth is...that is what I am doing now...I only wish I had known this 55 years ago. BUT better late than never.
