Isometrics for the Physically Challenged


Isometric exercise is the perfect fitness solution for anyone facing physical challenges that limit the ability to stand, move or lift - and an isometric training DVD will put your own "personal trainer" right there in your home, where you can exercise in privacy, whenever you want.

You can be toned, healthy, trim and fit even if you have physical challenges that rule out standard exercise techniques offered by most gyms.

An isometric exercise training video is the key to a healthy body.

People without physical limitations aren't very understanding about the special challenges faced by those who have to live with them. This lack of understanding can create a kind of insidious acceptance of being "less than" on the part of the physically challenged, too.

Even without realizing you are doing it, you can buy into the lowered expectations of health and vigor inherent in the larger society's lack of understanding. There's an (incorrect) assumption that exercise and fitness just aren't possible for some ... and this leads to the self-fulfilling prophecy of becoming overweight, dumpy, out of shape and lethargic.

It does NOT have to be that way! The absolute truth is: If you can sit - you can get fit!

Isometric exercise is the perfect fitness solution for anyone facing physical challenges that limit the ability to stand, move or lift - and an isometric training DVD will put your own "personal trainer" right there in your home, where you can exercise in privacy, whenever you want.

Isometric exercises can be done while sitting down.

They require no special equipment ... no special clothing ... no gym membership ... so jumping up and down, bouncing around, and no bodily torture. All that's required is the willingness to actually do the simple exercises for at least ten minutes each day. Of course, the more you do them, the faster you'll see results ... but a mere ten minutes a day can start you on the road to improving both your physique, your energy and your looks.

If you don't believe it's possible, then try this one exercise for a week or two and see for yourself. First, sit up as straight as possible; then, take a deep breath and tighten your abdominal muscles as hard as you can, release the breath normally holding your abdominal muscles for a slow count of 10. Release while breathing normally. Do this for just 10 minutes a day, and you'll very quickly find yourself starting to feel and look better than you did before you knew about the exercise, because the simple isometric motion of tensing and releasing your core stomach muscles can burn calories, trim your waist line and lead you to feel more energized than you ever dreamed possible.

An isometric exercise video will contain many more exercises, and instructions on how to do them properly, for those with limited physical capabilities ... exercises that target not only your stomach and abdomen, but also the muscles in your buttocks, your thighs, your arms ... everywhere in your body.

Even exercises that originally were designed for standing can easily be modified to be done effectively while seated, and a good exercise video will explain what small modifications need to be made.

Don't buy into the destructive myth that physical challenges must necessarily doom you to a lifetime of being unfit. It's simply not true - and an isometric exercise video can show you how to prove the "naysayers" (and yourself!) wrong about what is and isn't possible for you.
