Isometric based program

Recommended Posts

db2000

Does anyone have any guidelines or a program based around isometrics for short steel bending?

 

I know nothing will substitute actually bending

 

From all the searching I have done the only recommendation I can find is keeping them under 10 seconds, no information of how many attempts, how many positions etc

 

Any guidance would be appreciated

How long have you been bending?

Not long enough! Only a few weeks. I can bend a ironmind yellow nail.

My plan was to only go about 50% for a couple months. I don't think I have enough tendon and ligament strength for 80%+

Your body is most likely not ready for isometrics. ISOs are great, but should be used more as a last step when you are not making gains with regular bending. You are going to make great gains over the next six months just bending regularly.

I agree - make sure you have good recovery between sessions and get those bends in! Really focus on technique and flexibility and lock in that movement pattern.

Make sure you bend in ironmind pads only it will help establish tremendous wrist strength on top of conditioning your hands
