Previously, Kirsten shared the one move you should do at home to ensure you stay fit and toned in lockdown: the ‘isometric hold’.
Instead of chasing weights and gym equipment at Rebel Sports and Kmart, Kirsten said you should try an “isometric hold” instead (pictured)
‘Hot tip! So everyone is looking for the latest piece of training equipment in Australia or the world,” Kirsten said.
“Whether it’s ankle weights, Swiss balls, magic circles or weights, we’re all looking BUT I want to share something with you.
“You don’t need them to activate muscles, create tone and build strength.”
Instead of hunting for weights and gym equipment at Rebel Sports and Kmart, Kirsten said you should try an “isometric hold” instead.
Kirsten (pic working out) said you don’t need a lot of gym equipment to see results in the gym the
“This is where you put your body in a position, usually halfway through the exercise, where the muscles are tense or active,” she said.
“You then hold this position (still with no movement) and continue to work the muscles for about 45 seconds.
By doing this ‘isometric hold’ you build muscle slowly.
Once you’ve held it for 45 seconds, start by completing the exercises you were going to do and finish with another 45 seconds.
‘This can be done for any exercise and any muscle group’, Kirsten explains.
“If you practice the method, I can promise you that it doesn’t take weights to cause muscle burns and a change in your body.”
The Pilates instructor concluded: ‘Let’s face it, we all really want to walk out of ISO [sic] like a hotter, fitter, healthier version than when we came in.
“When your friends see you, you want them to say, ‘Damn girl, you look good!’ ‘
Kirsten also illustrated several isometric hold styles you can try, including legs hanging in the air, a crab-like grip, and even a knee tuck.
