What are Isometrics Isometric Strength Training? You may have heard the term isometrics when hearing about various exercise routines and techniques and had some questions. Isometric exercise or isometrics are a type of strength training in which the joint angle and muscle length do not change during contraction. Isometrics are done in static positions, rather than being dynamic through a range of motion.

View the web version of the email. Alexander Zass and the Prison Workout A recent thread on the Transformetrics Forum discussed how men confined to prison can get in such awesome physical shape.
In Isometric Power Revolution , I offer some examples of how individuals, confined against their wills, used Isometric Contraction to get—and stay—strong. One of the most impressive of those examples was Alexander Zass.
He became known worldwide for his ability to bend thick iron bars and snap chains with his bare hands. But how did Zass gain such strength? While before the war he had been a strong man who worked out faithfully using conventional methods, once he was in prison—shackled in solitary confinement—his body began to deteriorate from lack of activity and exercise.
He soon began to powerfully push and pull on his prison bars and chains as a means of exercise. Not only did he find that he was able to rebuild his former strength and physique. This form of dynamic exercise actually took him to a level of strength that he had never enjoyed before. Zass became so strong there in solitary confinement, that he was ultimately able to bend the iron bars of his prison window, rip them out, bend one bar into a hook to scale a wall, snap the chains from his manacles—and escape!
Not only will you find other inspiring and challenging stories like this, but I also provide a comprehensive Isometric program that will strengthen and sculpt every muscle in your entire body. And yes, it can literally be done anytime, anywhere. Check it out! Do you know someone who would benefit from the challenge and inspiration of these Daily Transformations e-mails?

Zass was born in Vilna, Poland in , but lived most of his early years in Russia and after in Britain. He lifted a pound girder with his teeth, carried a small horse, caught a woman fired from a cannon and allowed professional boxers to hit him in the stomach, but his greatest talents were in bending steel bars and breaking chains which were the center piece of his music hall exhibitions. Like many other strongmen of his era Zass was initially motivated to develop his strength when he attended a circus and saw the feats done by the circus strongman. At first he developed himself by climbing trees, running and with home made dumbells and barbells. Later he trained under some of the great Russian professional strongmen including Krelov, Anokhin, and Demetrioff who taught their systems in person and through correspondence. Anokhin taught his system to George Lurich who eventually became famous as a world champion strongman and wrestler.

In Strongman Mastery by admin June 15, 38 Comments Alexander Zass is one of my favorite oldtime strongmen of course I like them all, but a few stand out to me. He was known as the Amazing Samson and performed all over Russia and Europe back in his day. One of the most amazing things about him was that he escaped from POW camps four different times during the war! Fortunately there is some surviving video footage of him. This video shows him breaking chains across his chest, doing some long bar bending , being beaten by sledgehammers while in a bridge feat, and then being hit in the stomach. Here is more about Alexander Zass in his own words describing his system of training. System the most efficient of all systems.
What are Isometrics (Isometric Strength Training)?
The secret of my strength explained. Many physical culturists possess large-size muscles, yet they lack something—something- fundamental. Some possess it in a degree more than others, but they have not specialized in its training. Have you seen my performance on the stage? If so, you have probably noticed that my movements, when performing a feat of strength, are short ones. Some of my feats require no movement at all.
