Is this unique Isometric-Isotonic* Workout the Solution for Men who want Strength Training at Home?

The benefits of a good strength training at home program are almost endless. Less disease, happiness and most importantly, showing off your muscles at the beach. Strength training should be part of every daily routine. Even if you are low on time, strength training, according to the ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine), only needs to be done 2-3 times per week with each session lasting no more than one hour. For 2-3 hours per week, huge benefits can be realized.

A regular Strength Training at Home Routine will:

  • help you in day to day activities at home and in your yard. It will keep you independent which is especially important in the older population
  • Imagine not being able to lift a 5 pound bag of flour or take the garbage out of home by yourself
  • lower the risk of osteoporosis, hypertension and diabetes
  • help men avoid lower back pain
  • increase bone density
  • increase muscle mass which burns more calories throughout the day than an equal amount of fat

Even with all these benefits, many men are reluctant to start training with weights or machines. Concerns include injury, incorrect form and for women; not wanting to grow muscles and look like a man. And of course many lack the time for it or don’t want to pay the monthly fee for a fitness club. Doing an effective routine at home can be quite difficult if you rely on weights or even machines.

Are you ready to start your total body strength training at home? All you need is dedication, a little knowledge what to do and a small device which was there long before the TRX – it even was used by the Apollo Astronauts! They did not workout at home but in space and around the moon!

The X develops muscle and strength throughout a full range of motion. Terminology-wise, isometric contraction refers to the person’s maximum effort against an immovable object while isotonic is the muscle contraction through the full range of the used joint.

The unknown 10/12 Method for Strength Training at Home

Strength training for men with the X is simple, but not easy: An exercise begins with a 10-second isometric contraction, thereby fatiguing the muscle, then the isotonic phase takes over by working through a range of some particular sport specific motion. For football it may be a passing movement for the quarterbacks, forearm motion for the linemen or leg, knee or foot motion for all. 3 reps of 22 seconds each add up to 66 second full contraction time for the muscle groups addressed by the particular exercise. F.e. 5 exercises with a duration of 3 Minutes each (giving you over 30 seconds rest and preparation time for the next rep) ca be done within 15 Minutes adding up to 330 seconds full contraction time (TUT: Time Under Tension). All in your living room!

The amount of resistance or weight from the X is controlled by a little lever on the handle, it ranges from 0 to around 400 pounds. And the best: X fits in a small pocket and is the perfect tool for strength training at home!
