  • I ask the guys - what do they think is the mechanism behind the performance benefits of long-duration isometrics?
  • I ask the guys to disccuss why an increase in catecholamine release from isometrics can be beneficial?
  • I ask the guys - how do they measure the actual work being done with isometric actions?
  • I ask the guys about the structural, neural, and metabolic adaptations from isometrics
  • Here the guys talk about some really interesting adaptation that isometrics can have on hypertrophy and tendon properties (i.e. tendon stiffness)
  • We get into an indepth discussion on isometrics and tendon adaptations
  • Here the guys talk about how isometrics seem to impact more of the tendon architecture vs tendon CSA (hypertrophy)
