    Does anyone have any comments on Matrix Training?
    I read a short artricle on it claiming that this form of training is 2-3
    times more effective than regular weight training.
    I think its also referrered to as Isotonic training or Isotonic Matrix.
    In simple this training is where you still do a regualr workout but split
    the movements up. For example in a bicep curl you might do 5 reps of the
    bottom half then 5 reps of the top half. Which supposedly makes for a more
    thorough workout and isolates muscles better if you only do a small movement
    in the range where you can feel it more.
    I have started using this, and certainly makes for a hard workout but I
    wanted to hear from people who have been there done that and if they could
    post what results they had.
    Also are there any links to this form of training with example programs and
    moves?
    Many thanks.

    In my world isolating a muscle does not equate to a better workout.

    In the bodybuilding world - maybe. The only advantage I can see is
    reduced momentum - more tension.

    That really is air you're breathing. Take the red pill.

    Stuff like this only works for me when doing biceps. I mean how would
    you do the 'bottom half' and 'top half' of a squat? or bench or lat
    pulldown...F that.
    You're going to hurt yourself trying to do the 'bottom half' of a
    squat...lmao

    Try some supersets, they are loads of fun...
