Do Static Holds Build MUscle?
I was looking at a few websites on how to train your neck and a lot of them recommend to use static holds (where you press the side of your head against a stable object and hold it for 30 sec. or so).
Do these static holds do anything to increase muscle?

Yes I think so, time under tension

I'm pretty sure that it does! Static makes ur fibres to inject and enlarge the bloods comming increasing the size of it. Wouldn't bet 10 k on that but pretty sure it does.

From my experience static is a great way to get over flat spots in your training/development. Personally, I wouldn't do it in replace of lifting(although some do) but I do think it is effective if used when you are unable to progress on a given exercise...Hope that helped.

Been doing static shrugs to bring out my traps with power bands looped in a squat cage getting great results and still doing the regulars, bar and dumbbell and machine shrugs still.

yeah they do.. but i think 30 secs is too much.. for best results you should use a weight that u can max hold for 10 secs.. for example.. if u bench 220lbs you should use 330lbs and hold it for 5-10 secs.. if u can hold the weight for more than 5 sets you´re useing to little weight and should put on more
