mentzer's theory behind static training is that since you can handle more weight for a static hold (and even more for a negative) than you can with a positive you are limiting yourself by only exhausting those muscle fibers that are firing during contractive work.
at any rate you wanna use a weigth higher than you 1 rep max (you'll have to experiement) and hold it at a full contraction as long as possible.

I believe Peter Sciasco (spelling) was involved in the Static Contraction book.
