Isometric Exercises


Doing isometric exercises

Only facial isometric exercises are of value to the facial muscles.  Isometric exercises are possible only if a muscle or a muscle group is worked against proper resistance, whereby the resistance has to be held at the point of muscle function, permitting the fullest muscle contraction at the slowest range possible. Any other muscle movements cannot be considered as isometric exercises.  Tone and flabbiness can be improved through isometric exercises that produce slow, long- range expansion.  orrect facial isometric exercises when done faithfully will work.  acial isometric exercises also apply to all areas of the face and throat. 

Why do isometric exercises work?

The facial muscles, like muscles everywhere on our bodily structure, need to be exercised to maintain their firmness and proper facial isometric exercises provide remarkable results.   

The isometric exercises demonstrated in face lifting by exercise involve resistance. These isometric exercises are specifically designed to firm and shorten elongated facial muscles, thus, literally lifting the face. 

The skin is merely a thin covering over the flesh that has to go along with the muscle formation which will return to the size of the muscle flesh when shortened through isometric exercises. For unelastic muscle tissues isometric exercises will shorten, thicken and restore the elasticity to the muscles. 

What is a good isometric exercise to try?

You must first perfect the preliminary practice of isometric exercises before you proceed to any of the isometric exercises in the book and the timeframes must be adhered to.  See a sample of isometric exercises below. 

Isometric exercises - corrective throat exercise:

  • lift chin slightly upward,
  • with flat point of index and middle fingers press against indentation (hollow) formed by the two upper nodules of the larynx located at the curve from chin to throat.  Do not be concerned in the beginning as to the precise location of pressure which you will discover through practice.  Regard finger pressure as the resistance against the working muscles,
  • now press your back teeth firmly together and while maintaining this position,
  • press the tip of your tongue against the inside of lower front teeth (gum line) increasing pressure with the tip of the tongue in 10 or more gradual and definite steps.
  • hold end position of pressure for 6 seconds.
  • release muscle work for 10 gradual steps.
  • remove finger resistance.
  • repeat 4 more times.
Note: if resistance is kept at the right place you will feel the muscles pushing against your finger resistance.  For each increase of pressure with tip of tongue you will sense a stronger push against your resistance.
