Why Isometrics Is the Best Strength Training for Women

When it comes to fitness, one of the biggest concerns of female clients is getting "bulky". Isometric exercises are the perfect exercises for women in terms of overall fitness, because there is no single method of exercise better for developing lean, functional muscle than isometrics, but I'd like to address some of the myths about bulkiness first.

"Bulkiness": This image above seems to be the first thing that pops into the heads of many first-time female clients. They are very concerned that doing too much exercise will give them a bulky or masculine look.

For one, lifting weights and exercising is not inherently masculine; the purpose of exercise is to build muscle, improve health, lose fat, etc. Building muscle doesn't mean you'll look like Renne Toney, the woman in the picture above. Muscle like that requires years of training and some chemical help.

For most women, exercise will mean looking something along the lines of...

Now wait...these are three very different body types...and that's exactly my point.

Exercise for women isn't linear - there's no universal body type that you'll develop from working out, male, female, or anything else. If you don't have a goal while working out, you won't know what exercises to do. 

If you WANT to "bulk", you can. If you want to lose body fat, you can. If you want to improve health and cardio, you can. 

My point is, your goals should establish your workout, not the other way around. Fitness comes in all shapes and sizes.

With that established, I'll say that the fitness goals of most female clients revolves around weight loss, toning, or maintaining health and strength. 7 Seconds to A Perfect Body is the best isometric exercise program to achieve those goals, and it is the most convenient system of isometric exercises for women.

All of those fitness goals are achieved by building muscle. Most of your weight loss will happen when you leave the gym. The more muscle you have, the more calories you will burn while resting. The brunt of your weight loss will come from diet, but the process will be infinitely easier if you develop more lean, functional muscle. 

Now for health and fitness, same thing. Increasing your level of lean muscle tissue will pay dividends toward your health, fitness, and physique. And there is no better way to develop lean, functional muscle than training with isometric exercises

How? You can do so using your own bodyweight, in your own spare time, without spending loads of extra time or money on monthly memberships. You can perform intense isometric exercises with progressive resistance for lean, functional muscle in the comfort of your own home; there are few more convenient methods of exercise for women.
