I'm sure at some point you've gotten ready to do a workout but your knee or hip felt a bit tight or you were uncomfortable as you were still rehabbing. Often times, that can be dealt with so you can have a productive workout.
How you might ask!
📌Long Isometric Split Squat Holds📌
Long isometric holds, when you just hold a position for a period of time, are a great way to create the kind of tension in your tendons to ready them up to train. It's an optimal way to "warm up" your joints to train.
The constant muscle stress that you have when holding a split squat actually changes the tendon of your knee and ankle itself to be able handle the stress of your training better.
This is great to do when dealing with an energy to get back to confident running,
So, how long should you do it?
At least 45 seconds, and preferably twice if you go that short. Ideally, you are holding this for 90 seconds to 3minutes.
