Prevent Exercise Burnout With Isometrics

Any exercise program that requires you to sweat, strain, grunt, sweat and suffer on a regular basis for an un-proscribed length of time is going to lead to burnout, eventually, no matter how satisfying the results might be. Since isometric exercise doesn’t contain any of those elements, burnout isn’t a factor.

There are those who are addicted to gym workouts as surely as any poor unfortunate soul may be addicted to drugs, and they’d be utterly bewildered by any talk of “burnout.” But for the normal, every day, regular exerciser, failing motivation, sagging interest and deteriorating enthusiasm is a real factor; that kind of burnout is a definite probability and a real danger to the ongoing success of any fitness program.

How many gazillion flights can anyone climb on stair-climber … how many thousands of miles can they walk on a treadmill or ride on a stationery bicycle … before a very strong “I am so over this!” factor kicks in? From the moment such a thought surfaces, that person’s entire fitness program is in grave danger and almost certainly will be abandoned before too much longer.

And who can blame them? Maybe, after driving themselves mercilessly for many months, they got the physical look they wanted and lost the weight they’d hoped to lose … but those results came from exercises that endlessly tortured their bodies … left them sweaty, exhausted and in pain … infringed upon their social and family life by demanding endless hours in a gym … and packed a pretty solid wallop to their bank account, what with the cost of gym membership and the purchase of special workout clothes.

That kind of burnout is never experienced with isometric exercise. And that’s especially true if you are working out to the guidance of an isometric training DVD, in the no-extra-cost comfort and privacy of your own home.

The exercises you’ll learn from an isometrics training DVD aren’t the kind that wear you out and leave you enervated, exhausted or in pain. To the contrary, when you’re finished with an isometrics workout you feel vigorous, energetic and ready to take on whatever comes your way. Results are obvious really quickly, too.

Each isometric exercise takes only ten short minutes a day, and you can perform them as you go about your regular routine. You can strengthen your abdominal muscles while answering the phone … you can target your arm muscles while watching TV … you can firm up the muscles in your buttocks while sitting at a desk. Do as many or as few a day as you feel like doing. Do them at any time of the day or night, while you are doing just about anything else. Dress however you feel like dressing (or need to be dressed, if you’re incorporating the exercises into your office workday).

Without the expense – both in terms of money and of time – of a gym membership … without the strain and pain of strenuous, tortuous special-equipment exercises … without feeling ragged, worn out and miserable after each workout, burnout is one thing you won’t have to worry about with an isometrics program as you stay fit, trim and vigorous for the rest of your life.
