Hey I’m Jake of Body by Jake and I’ve got a great fitness tip for you today.
It’s called the ISO or isometric bicep curl and it’s a fun one! Todd told me so, and so did Julie. Now we’re gonna show you how we do it right now!
Todd, Julie, feet shoulder-width apart, knees are bent slightly, squeeze that buttisimo, stomach nice and tight. Now, left hand clap it to the right hand and we’re gonna curl our right hand up while we’re trying to push down.
We’re gonna bring it down and curl up. A great isometric exercise. Body weight training – everyone’s talking about it! This is what it is isometric training is.
Perfect, perfect! Now let’s switch arms. Remember we’re breathing normally, taking it at your own pace. Ease into it, have some fun and remember to smile.
That’s the key but also remember: stick to the fight when you’re hardest hit, it’s when things seem worst that you must not quit. Don’t quit on you! Have a great day!
