I'm now 38 and i've kept the same body weight for over a decade.
I'm not that interested in gaining muscle but staying strong and fit and healthy. Yet where my fitness is always improving, my method for strength is bothering me?
I use limited exercises like dips and pushups for upper development and bike riding for fitness but my main question is this: Is there anyone who knows the optimum benefits of using a bullworker? I love this piece of equipment but is it's long term use any good? Does anyone use a bullworker or am i the only one?
I had a Bullworker many years ago. Basically an isometric contraction machine. I used to love it, was in great shape in those days before I ate an extra me to carry around. Traded it for a guitar. I use isometric contraction priciples in my weight routine at the failure pount of my exersizes, I hold it out for 8 -10 seconds. Ya gotta be careful though, not to rip yer muscles.
I echo the question, anybody use the Bullworker or have comments about isometric contraction?

"I echo the question, anybody use the Bullworker or have comments about isometric contraction? "
Bullworker and Isometric contraction are two differnt but related questions: A. Now I do not and have not used the bullworker so I really can not give an opinion on it.
I do and have done Isometric contraction, most people do and a lot of them do not even realize it. Every time a person flexes a muscle they use it, practice posing creates isometric contraction and pump. I use isometric contraction by flexing a given body part between sets and also I use it continuously through out the day for abs. Both isometric contraction and stretching are extremely benificial to bodybuilding even if done on a less than concious level.

I used it in my navy days. OUt at sea, it is hard to lift, so we had a bunch of gadgets laying around to use. Unfortunatly, I was not as conscience of my body then as I am now, so I can;t really tell if it worked out not.

Control your body weight with your diet.
Control your body composition and strength with the weight room (and the bike).
