Abandon all weakness, ye who enter here.

Thank You!

Thank you so much. When I saw you were able to do what you did I knew I had to follow suit. It's not everyday you, knowingly, come across someone with strength like that. Honestly I'm not necessarily interested in performing feats, I can akready lift my entire body on my index fingers and thumbs, but I want to be doing the workouts that produce feats. I'm a martial artist as well and I just want to be as strong as possible. I also do Zhan Zhuang like you, but would you do if you were in my shoes, as far as workouts for the rest of the week. I was going to combine isometrics with plyometrics, like a hold followed by doing as many jump pushups until I'm as close to muscle failure as I'd like to be without actually reaching it. I don't know if that's a good idea now. I need to build my striking cardio back up too. Do you think I should do isometrics one day and then only plyometrics, short sessions of 30 60/ 60 120 running and striking the other 5 days? Is that too much too? I have overdone it in the past when I used to lift weights. Thanks again. You guys are an inspiration

Well what I would say is how important mastering your own tension is for overall strength, and reaching a legendary level of strength. Muscle control and tendon strength is critical, and my only hold up with plyometric training is that it is often harmful for the tendons and connective tissue. I don't personally do plyometrics, instead I do dynamic tension, but I'm certainly not against it.

The biggest point for maximum strength in isometric training, though, is mastering that tension. If you do a hold, flex your muscles as hard as you can while doing the hold. If you do an overcoming isometric exercise, put as much force into it as you can. Happy training!
