I received an email from a customer who quickly progressed using Static Contraction to the point of using over half a ton on his upright rows. I always like to hear success stories but it also grieves me to see people have to load machines to over-capacity just to get a decent workout. Some day the world will look back at our exercise machines and never stop laughing at how puny they were. Most people have no idea how strong they can get – if – they challenge their assumptions and presuppositions. Jason did. Here’s his story.
I started doing Static Contraction Training in January 2010 while I was stationed at Yokota Air Base in Tokyo Japan after seeing you on a DVD with Tony Robbins and witnessing your program in action. I purchased your E-book on Static Contraction Training and thought that New Years would be a great time to start. In my initial phase using the program, I made ridiculously significant gains that saw me at a level on most of the Hammer-Strength that would not allow me to add any more weight due to the limitations of the equipment.
I continued on my track from January to July 2010, and moved back to the US at that time. Upon my return I wasn’t able to continue my work due to the gym that I joined not having enough weight, or large enough equipment to conduct/continue this training on my own; I don’t really trust anyone to spot me with this much weight.
However, I move to a new location and found a gym that allowed me to resume my training, and I have been blasting off ever since. I began Static Contraction Training again in late July 2011.
I am 40yrs old as of August 2011 and I tell everyone that meet about Static Contraction Training, why I do it and prefer it to a lesser intensity workout, and the benefits that I have received (shorter workouts, WAY STRONGER, and just as much muscular endurance as my old routine of 3 sets/8-10 reps on everything I did). I also encourage them to look-up what I’m saying and to try it for themselves!
I have attached a picture of my latest effort and triumph. In the picture, I am using the Hammer-Strength Upright-Row. I have 950lbs of weight on the bars and the person standing on the weight weighs 90+lbs; for a grand total of 1045lbs. 😀
I will endeavor to continue my pursuit of dominance, and I just wanted to thank you for providing us all with the means, insight, and dare to be the best that we can be!!! 🙂

If you want to challenge the assumptions of conventional training, try Static Contraction Training for the next 30 days and maybe you’ll lift a half ton like Jason does.
