Static Contraction Training

by Lee

Many trainees greatly underestimate the intensive burden static contraction training puts on their bodies. For example: leg pressing 1,000 pounds in a static hold is the equivalent to lifting an adult Jersey cow - that is a 1/2 ton of dairy cattle!


These kinds of heavy weights don't only stress the joints, muscles and connective tissues, but stress the entire central nervous system.

This should naturally lead us to ask, "How can you expect to build any muscle before you are fully recovered?" The simple answer is, you can't. Until a single ounce of muscle can be built, the body must first replenish itself. This takes time.

Balancing optimal training with optimal recovery is how you make strength and muscle gains. If you are lifting heavy weights to build muscle - and you MUST - there are no shortcuts.
