Eccentric Bodyweight Exercises
In this section you will find eccentric bodyweight exercises to improve your isometric strength for artistic gymnastics, traditional martial arts, etc. Eccentric bodyweight exercises are a bit like negative repetitions but with your bodyweight. You basically go into a position you can't possibly hold and try to hold it isometrically. As you are not "yet" strong enough to hold it, you will just try to work against gravity. However, you will fail and that's what creates an eccentric contraction. Eccentric bodyweight exercises are useful for a variety of gymnastics events / sports. Eg: Still rings, planches, holding martial arts kicks, or when you are training for your first push-up.
