it’s isotonic and isometric STRENTH day for all of us Training Room characters.

In other words, if you care, we will be moving our joints through full range of motion (isotonic) for a certain period of time and THEN…

There will be a static hold (isometric).

Both types of contractions have a carry over to LIFE!

For example, picking a up a log off the ground (isotonic), holding it and carrying it to the wood pile (isometric) and putting it in its proper place (isotonic).

A little fitness vocabulary and education for you!

You’re welcome!

It was great to see such a BIG turnout for the Sunday interval training class at 8 AM!

This will be happening for the next 10 weeks!
