Weekly Training Tip #34 - Single Leg Peak ISO
The peak isometric is a short and intense maximal contraction against an immovable object at the joint angles specific to positions in sport where maximal force is necessary. Two examples of positions to perform this exercise at would be: the hip and knee position where an athlete would preload to a maximal jump or at the joint angles at the hip and knee an athlete would experience while sprinting and their foot strikes the ground. This trains the athlete to produce force in these key positions for performance. These are best programmed in short bursts of 3-6 seconds total for a few sets at a time early in a workout to prime the athlete to produce maximal force.
