Training Schedule: The Progress Chart and Weekly Training Schedule located in Section 5 will guide you through all the exercises and allow you to chart your progress along the way.
Training Tips:
  1. Isometric exercises are to be done with normal breathing. Do not hold your breath during the exercises because this may cause a sudden increase in blood pressure and/or light-headedness.
  2. Use a watch or clock with a clearly visible second hand so that you can accurately time your isometric exercises.
  3. Pay close attention to the way your body position is shown for each exercise, because correct positioning is needed to isolate specific muscle groups.
