Isometrics for Improving Range Of Motion

One often overlooked and under-utilized method of improving range of motion is a simple stalwart of programming that’s survived for decades, primarily because while they’re not sexy, they still solve problems relatively effectively.

Isometric exercise can have some massive impacts in range of motion, and builds off a lot of the tenets I’ve outlined in previous posts: building stability and motor control in the specific position, applying force through tissues to promote adaptation, and reducing neural guarding that could hold back achieving a range of motion.

They’re also incredibly simple to use, and work well as a warm up, active recovery drill between heavier sets, restorative work, maximal intensity training sessions, and even homework for rehab clients.
