In every major muscle magazine, you’ll find a minimum of 3
articles that “teach” you how to build giant looking muscles. Come on are you
fucking kidding me, most of these guys can’t write a single program that shows
any realistic approach to building massive muscles with functional strength.
Having big muscles can actually ruin your chances of having success in your
exercise program, sure some are genetically built to have big muscles and still
find a way to be extremely flexible and very strong. If you don’t believe that
then take a look at a couple of muscle bound looking guys I know of. In my opinion, if you have 23 inch biceps, so what, sure
they look cool and sometimes grotesque but just because you have them, doesn’t
always mean you’re a strong dude. What can they really do except look good in a
pose down? Big arms can only go so far but when you have strong tendons to go

Regardless of your training whether for competition, conditioning, strengthening or developing a highly good looking physique there always should be an animal you aught to do between workouts or on your days off. Animal training builds the muscles in different positions that other exercises can't touch. That's because most exercises have an up and down, side lift position as oppose to an animal exercise that hits you from so many angles its not even funny. When I do other workouts like circuits, bridging, VRT or whatever I do my best to move around like an animal the rest of the day because I love to move and keep my body energized.
People like to cram their workouts within a short period of time (an hour or less) and that's fine more power to you but I feel regardless of time, do little things throughout the day so you stay freshed until you're ready to pass out at bed time. When I travel and am around people I don't always have time for a major workout until its …
Got back into Isometrics lately doing the Self Resistance style pitting muscle against another muscle so I can put on some definition. This is mostly due to changing things up and getting my mind out of boredom. No I'm not giving up on my animal exercise but I might tone it down to a few times a week instead of everyday because as much as I love it I get bored easily.
Making a certain method an integral part in your training can possibly enhance your strength and conditioning so that's where the Isometrics come in. It hits your muscles from a static position with max effort or at near max effort. Most don't realize that this particular method is one of the most difficult to concentrate on because unlike moving your body or a weight, your focus needs to be on point of the muscles you're pushing or pulling. Next to Sprints, Isometrics are the next best thing to burning off fat and building dense muscle plus being able to do it wherever you want.
