Sports Fitness From A to Z, 9

Isometric exercises (especially for the core) are underrated and are great for core stabilization and strength.....isometric exercises require you to hold one position (20 seconds for example) without moving.



Planks are top exercises to strengthen your entire core, including your abs (superficial and deep stabilizers) and lower back.....some variations of planks are:

Prone plank

Prone plank on ball (shown above)

Side plank

Pushup plank

You can do these types of isometric exercises up to 4-5 times a week.

A stronger core will make your arms and legs more strong/powerful and will help you to increase speed and maintain speed longer ( speed endurance ).

"Other things being equal, a muscular, powerful athlete will outperform a fat, slower athlete. Sports Fitness Hut's Fat Blaster Athletic Power Training System will give you your "lean and mean" athletic machine!"

Great article, I have been doing isometrics for a little while now, just when ever I have a spare five minutes I will push my hands together ect doesnt matter where I am. I also bought a device from www.jym.me which is helping me monitor my progress.
