Got pain? Try point (vector) isometrics. In climbing, when you have two anchors and apply a load between them, that’s called a vector load. Even without much loading at the point of application, the effects at either end (the anchors) are significant. Applying this concept to isometrics – specifically to, say, pain in the quad or associated system – we use a weighted ball for loading, add our classic contract/relax/breathing, and watch pain dissipate while function gets restored. Give this a whirl around your training and let us know how it goes in the comments ⤵️ Looking for more pain relief and performance-enhancing instruction?
