Static Contraction Or Power Factor - Which Is Best

Posted by Clint Robson on Tuesday, June 21, 2011, In : Training 
For the last ten years I've been talking to people exclusively about Static Contraction training. I'd forgotten that one of the most common questions I used to hear was: "Which one is better, Static Contraction or Power Factor?"

The answer to this question depends on what you mean by "best". I sometimes ask the questioner, "Which is better, a Corvette or a pickup truck?" If you want to get somewhere quickly, then the Corvette is better, but if you want to get a load of timber over a bad road, ...

Posted by Clint Robson on Wednesday, February 2, 2011, In : Training 
Static Contraction isometric workouts let you safely lift much more weight. This is a fact and something that I advocate every day. It is easily possible and doable to double the weights you lift!

The founder of Static Contraction Training, Pete Frisco gives the following advice on the subject. .

Strength training suffers from a lack of creativity and innovation. Its stale! That’s why people toil away in gyms doing saturation workouts of multiple sets and reps of dozens of exercises that are ...

How to Set a Personal Record in Any Exercise

Posted by Clint Robson on Tuesday, November 23, 2010, In : Training 
Personal progress provides its own motivation. Few things in the gym provide more positive feedback and personal motivation than setting a personal record on a favorite exercise.

That's why you see so many guys with T-shirts proudly proclaiming things like "Bench Press 300 lbs" usually accompanied by a caricature of a huge guy hoisting a seriously bent barbell. While most of us prefer to be more introverted about our achievements, we all feel the glow of satisfaction in being able to improve ...

Tips for Effective Back Muscles Training

Tips for Effective Back Training

Don't you think it strange that the professional bodybuilders, weightlifters and trainers always seem to ignore the back? When did you hear of them doing back training?

We hear of core muscles, legs, arms, chest, abs etc, but nobody pays much attention to the back! I find this strange and very under-rated.

For one thing, the lower back muscles are the antagonistic muscles to the abdominal muscles and keep that area of the torso in proper balance. The internet an...

How To Improve Your Workouts

Posted by Clint Robson on Sunday, October 3, 2010, In : Training 
How does one improve their workout? This is a very common, basic question. Well, do you believe that your workouts represent the pinnacle of mankind’s achievement on the subject of strength training? Do you believe that your training can never be improved?

I'm asking this in all sincerity, because for many years I’ve noticed that I battle against something I call Cogniostasis. Don’t bother searching for that word in the dictionary - I made it up.

You might be familiar with the word homeos...

New Study Claims To Disprove Static Contraction Training

Posted by Clint Robson on Wednesday, September 8, 2010, In : Training 
If you have followed my blog lately, you'll know how I love Static Contraction and how impressed I am with the principles and the new philosophy of weight training. I use it and I teach it. Thank you Pete Sisco! However, there are always skeptics and people who just cannot accept that maybe, just maybe, their beliefs are wrong.

Every few months some or other "medical study" reveals some aspect of strength training, that they believe disproves the fundamental principles behind static contractio...

Static Contraction Exercises And Some Ways To Cheat

Posted by Clint Robson on Sunday, August 22, 2010, In : Training 
If you have only just heard about Static Contraction Training (SCT) you might want to try a few of the exercises at your gym, just to satisfy yourself that there really is a difference. I'm really impressed!

The basics of SCT are to:
a) limit the range of motion to only your strongest and safest range
b) for just 5 seconds lift the heaviest weight you can within that range

The exercises themselves are common ones that you likely already do using your full, weakest range of motion. They can all ...

Rational Abs Training

Posted by Clint Robson on Thursday, July 8, 2010, In : Muscles 
Abs training is as simple and comprehensible as biceps training yet, for some reason, more misleading garbage has been written on training this bodypart than any other.

You must have seen dozens of fitness articles that allegedly tell guys how to develop their abs. I'm sure you've seen the images of a guy holding a broom handle, or a light barbell over his shoulders and twisting his torso from left to right as a means to lose his love handles. It's a total waste of time! Or even worse, a guy h...

What Is Static Contraction Training?

Posted by Clint Robson on Monday, June 14, 2010,
This article will provide you with what I think is fascinating information of how to get more out of your fitness strength training, with less total effort.

It does not involve “something for nothing” claims about how you can lift cute, pink dumbbells and transform your body. People and magazines who tell you that you can, are lying to you, plain and simple.

Static Contraction, developed by Pete Sisco, is about lifting a heavy weight for a very brief time (5 seconds), to stimulate your mus...

Today I want to tell you about a really great new exercise program, by Pete Sisco.
