    I googled Ray Peat Isometric and found no mention of isometric exercise. It increases nerve force which is always useful.

    Any opinions on isometric or other forms of exercise reviewed by RP ?

    I'm big into muscle control which is a form of isometrics.

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong but I think Peat doesn't seem to be a fan of the eccentric portion of using weights?
    I read an article a few days ago that seems to be saying that "Overcoming isometrics" are more like a concentric type exercise and "Yielding isometrics" are more like an eccentric or negative exercise.

    It would seem that the overcoming isometrics are the more Peat friendly of the two?
