Ok, here is what I do. On monday, wednesday, and friday, in the morning I lift heavier weights and do an excercise bike for 20 minutes between 10am-11 30. I do this after going to school and before work. In the evenings at home, every hour I just do 50 push ups, and 60 of these stomach workouts I previously described. I try to do this at least 3 different times in the evening but usually do it about 4. On tuesdays and thursdays I lift lighter weights for about 40 minutes, then do a series of other stomach workouts and push-ups. Then I do the push up and stomach workout in the evenings again. I usually dont work out sat. and sun. to give my body a rest but sometimes I might just do the push up and stomach deal a few times throughout the day.

up at the weight room at TCC and I have a total gym at home. the total gym is the light weights, it goes by body weight so it'll only do about 70% of my body weight which is about 100-110. heavy, i work out on bench anywhere from 155 to 225. and squats, 320, same with leg-press. then i do other shit at TCC like curls, butterfly, then some of the ab machines. i know im not as strong with you mister R/T but theres a reason for that and we both know why

Just remember that when doing these exercises, you are primarily working the hip flexors (the ones responsible for lifting your knees toward your chest). Your abdominal muscles are contracting very little. Good ab contractions with good resistance is key to building great abs. Something to chew on.

cool. just don't confuse isometric exercise with isokinetic (shortening and lengthening) type exercises. They are completely different. Isometric exercise is beneficial, but it has it's own place.

-To increase strength, it's necessary to maintain a position in any one exercise for 6 to 8 seconds.
-The exercise should be repeated 5 to 10 times.
-Any one isometric exercise will only increase muscle strength at one joint angle. Strengthening the other joint positions requires repetition of further corresponding exercises.
-Isometric exercises on their own are not recommended for strength training. They are only part of a complete exercise program.
-If you suffer from heart disease or raised blood pressure, you should steer clear of isometric training. During the muscular contractions in this form of exercise, blood pressure can rise quite dramatically.
