About this event:

Steve Maxwell shares with you how to use the weight of your body for increased strength and hypertrophy.

Discover how with nothing more than a horizontal bar, you can get a full, productive workout... safely... Anytime, anyplace, anywhere.

Steve's modern-yet-classical approach to training minimalism liberates you from the expenses of:

  • gym memberships
  • costly equipment
  • time you don't have

You'll no longer worry about missing out on your training because of:

  • holidays
  • family functions
  • business travel

With Steve Maxwell's advanced body weight conditioning program

  • every room in your house
  • every stairwell
  • every garage and public park
  • ... even your jail cell -- if that's where you're at --

... becomes your personal training gym.


Steve will offer the secret of ancient martial arts masters to produce incredible muscular tension via the principle of antagonistic co-contraction (AC).

By applying AC you can make even simple exercises, such as body weight squats and push-ups, incredibly demanding and productive.


  • The 5-Pillars of movement-based BW training
  • Why generating high-muscular tension is virtually synonymous with strength
  • Why exploiting this tension factor is not only one of the hardest ways to train -- but also the safest
  • Why explosive training and plyometrics are not the best option -- for body weight training nor anything else
  • How to manipulate the mid-range and position of full-contraction to super-charge your pull-ups, chin-ups, and BW Rows
  • A modern twist on the use of isometric exercise called Timed Static Contraction (TSC)
  • The difference between stunts, feats, and proper strength training and why training to demonstrate strength isn't your best bet when training for other sports
  • How to organize your training program with rational design
  • The importance of recovery and improving upon recovery-ability
  • The six common dysfunctional breath patterns -- and why it's better to not train at all if you can't command the respiration.
  • Proper breath control and breathing during exercise

About this event:

I've recently re-discovered isometric training. I knew about isometrics as a kid and as a young wrestler used it as a supplementary workout and got great strength results. It's one of those things that in retrospect, I wonder why I ever stopped.

In this seminar, I'll explain every aspect of isometrics, and put a real modern twist on the traditions.



At this seminar, you will learn how to work yourself from head-to-toe, using nothing more than a simple strap, belt, or towel. I love the portability, availability, and simplicity of the isometric protocols and I will show you many of the awesome uses and exercises I have developed for myself and my clients over the years. My favorite is the Advanced Timed-Static Contraction (TSC) protocol.

Isometrics are nothing new, they've been around ever since warriors started training. Isometrics were popularized by Alexander Zass, a Russian strongman and circus performer and were re-popularized by the venerable York Barbell Club when I was a kid in the 1960s.

The TSC protocol was originally developed for people in post-surgical, or post-injury, rehabilitation. One of the great things about isometrics is that even if you are injured -- even confined to a hospital bed -- you can give yourself a great workout from head-to-toe that is not only strength-productive, with a pronounced training effect, but can provide a great cardio-vascular training as well.



In this seminar, here are the specific things I will show:

  • The difference between Timed-Static Contraction and traditional 3-position isometric protocols -- and why TSC is superior
  • The difference between yielding and overcoming isometrics -- and how both are very useful
  • How you can get a complete and productive workout, even in a hotel room, with nothing but your body and a simple strap
  • How you can make your own simple isometrics suspension device, with convenient handles
  • Effective exercises for feet, ankles; calves; thighs; hips; knees; back; chest; arms; shoulders and lats -- as well as specific neck and jaw muscles -- and why it is so important to work the neck and jaw
  • Facial isometrics to help prevent premature aged appearance
  • Why isometrics training is a great fit for martial artists -- especially for MMA and grapplers
  • How isometrics are so adaptive they can be used for housewives, executive businessmen, and elite athletes
  • How you can combine the most relevant isometrics into your current workout program



This seminar is for people of all walks of life, all ages. It is particularly good for working around -- and rehabilitaing -- injury; thus even if you are weak, hurt, or otherwise suffering, you will definitely want to attend this seminar and discover how you can get yourself into shape with confidence and without risking further bodily harm in training.

I have been using these isometric protocols for myself and my clients for several years now and getting tremendous positive feedback from around the globe.
