I use them as a grip improver.. just have a seperate day for them in the routine.. usually on the day I do traps.. just fits there

ive used it for the final rep for each set during my workouts, for a 3 week period back in my late HS days. i wouldnt say i made gains in strength or enhanced my physique more than without static training but explosiveness (esp. at the peak of each movement) was noticable. that was pretty much it.

I like adding them to the end of a work-out to really fatigue the muscle.

I recently began using a static set training routine outlined in the last issue of M&F.
For a more complete description go to http://www.anabolicminds.com/forum/s...&threadid=7561
I've used it at the begining of my routine, and it seems to work as a good pre-exhaust. I'm going to alternate it as a burnout this week. As I've only used it for one training split I can't say for sure whether I can see definate results, but I'm sore as hell afterwards, and I generally take that as a good sign that it did something new that my muscles aren't used to. I've been kind of stuck in a rut lately and I hope this helps to break me out. I'll try to let you know if it does. As for overtraining I can't say for sure one way or the other, I often believe that I may be guilty of doing a little too much.
