In the interests of full disclosure, however, I should mention that the summer I did these really seriously I trained the entire body every day with long hold isos and each workout took about two hours per day. I was already quite lean to begin with, by the end of the summer I was so defined I looked like a freak, had horizontal grooves across the lower back, striations and veins everywhere, and my skin looked as thin as plastic wrap. One downside was that I was even more irritable than usual, I basically felt dragged out all the time.
I think Steve Justa is one of the most honest writers in this crazy field and the training does what he says if you work at it, and indeed this type of training is very hard work if you do it correctly...if it feels easy you're not doing it right.
I intend to do that kind of training again someday, but not in the summer, it's too damn hot.

This is probably the most useful form of isometric training, IMO.

I should mention also that I don't see long-hold isos as a complete workout in itself, if I were to do them again today it would be in conjunction with other types of training.
