Sometimes i do a workout that fully coinsists of Isometric muscle movement(like planche holds etc,)
The workout consists of :
Planche ,front lever ,back lever ,l-sit ,handstand holds
what do you think about this kind of a wokout ,is it any good?

straight to the point no messing around!

i don't think that'd be any good either mate, static hold take a lot of energy, you're better off doing max reps, then the static holds.

ofc such workouts can be good. Check the forum of coach sommer or read "building the gymnastic bodies". There are whole cycles consisting of static exercises only with extreme good carryover to exercises like pullups, dips or HSPU.

Static holds are good but they should be combined with other types of exercises Smile

are you kidding? isometrics build tendon strength to a very high degree. higher so than doing norm. exercise. it does not do much in the way of muscle but thats not what its meant for. true strength lies in the tendons then the muscle itself. if yoiu combine daily isometrics with ur norm. training you will notice a big difference

doing it alone can get you injured.. do them together

Haven actually tried isometrics, but Ross Enamait from Ross Training is an advocate of it. You guys can check out his page, just google his name. He lifts weights and does bodyweight too, and he does some crazy sick stuff with his body, so I would like to think he knows what he's talking about!
Also, read from book that there was former prisoner who became one of the world's strongest man just by doing most of his workouts in prison by using isometrics on the prison bars!
