    Hiya, I quite enjoy throwing in a long hold isometric into the mix. My three go to are bottom of push up, bottom of lunge and chin above bar in a chin or pull up. I try to amass 3 minutes in as little sets as possible. In your opinion, where would you place them in a workout? I’m doing the homepertrophy L/P/P and I do the relevant one at the end of the workout. Do you have any recommendations for other movements to perform isometrics on? I know you have incorporated one into delts. And don’t worry I’m all over Broga and activations too. I find the isometrics weirdly enjoyable!

    There’s not really a wrong place to incorporate them. And if you’re looking for some more ideas, Coach Eugene has posted a bunch with towels. But it can be done with any motion. Just attach a towel, or rings, or TRX or daisy chains around something unmoving, or stand on them and you can figure some of the semantics from there.
