Yielding Isometrics eBook

I love Isometrics — Steve Maxwell

A very productive and safe way to train is isometrics. If you are an athlete and you wish to devote most of your time to your sport, not your strength training. Isometrics are most-efficient, do not put the joints at risk, and do not drain your time and energy from your critical skills-training.

Other good reasons to use isometrics are if you are working around injuries, or if you're getting up there in years and have some cranky joints. Another is if you (or your client) have poor motor-skills.

Markey Mouse for Kindle by Robert Tkoch

The book might be called a Neoplatonic mystery, or perhaps as a really simplified tale utilizing Platonic ideas --- or perhaps as an unusual commentary on current Western civilization --- but it might also be called a simple recollection of the values that seem really important in any life.
