Bodyweight Isometrics For Improved Strength "One method to address this is to pair static gymnastics-based holds with our athlete's dynamic exercises. Using these types of holds allows for similar levels of muscle activation as standard isometric movements, but with the added benefit of improving overall body control, core activation, and body awareness.
If you have any doubts, spend two-minutes watching a collegiate level or higher gymnastic meet and you'll quickly come around. Not only do they look like bodybuilders, with well-defined muscles and incredibly low body fat levels, they're also some of the strongest pound-for-pound athletes in the world.
The weightroom exploits of gymnasts are legendary. Consider 140-pound gymnasts who could crush 300-pound + bench presses and triple-bodyweight deadlifts without ever having touched a weight in practice before. Conversely, there aren't many 300-pound bench-pressers rocking iron crosses their first time out."—-Adam Vogel and Mike Campanella for TNation.com

5 Most Imortant Skills For Protecting Yourself "When training in a martial art it is important to learn the differences between training and the real thing. When practicing in the gym you do not suffer from elevated adrenaline levels, tunnel vision and reduce conscious thought. In a real life situation these can occur and your training should teach you how to manage them and still make a clean escape. The key is to be stressed in training but calm in real life."—Jack Roberts for Low Tech Combat
