    Isometric workout, when to incorporate it?

    When would be a good time to toss in a pure isometric training day into lifting program? Once every 6 weeks? Sooner? Later?

    When you are in prison and/or have no access to real weights.

    Haha, so basically I should pass on this? I have never done a pure isometric routine and was reading about them, wanted input from members to see what they thought. Have to keep my gym time useful so I'm thinking iso-day is a no go.

    The only time I would consider using isometric work is for overcoming a sticking point on a lift. Isometrics can work for this but that's about it IMO.
