Hi guys, Ive been kinda thinking about doing static exercises a few hours after my lift or right after my lift. (Static= wall sits, calf raise and hold, planks, push up hold, 1 leg stands, etc) I was wondering if say doing a wall sit after a heavy leg day can lead to over training or benefits since your not really lifting and your not moving but your still placing a huge amount of force on your legs. Will this benefit me or hurt me?

Only you will be able to determine if the static holds will help or hurt you. They've never bothered me, but I'm not you. Just try them, listen to your body the next couple of days, then make a determination whether or not to do them.

I have no idea what you are asking.

This is an unusual idea to do isometrics later after a heavy weight workout, and I'm asking what your reasoning is for proposing it. What do you hope to gain by doing this?

O sorry, I made a typo ^^ I meant more strength? Im just asking if that will help. And also wouldnt it be good to have 2 different types of muscles? Static and Movement power?

Isometric (Static) training is not useless, and there are times when you might want to do it. As long as you're getting full range of motion with challeging weight most of the time, you can augment with isometric and partial range exercises. I wouldn't do it a lot as it can be very taxing on the central nervous system. The example you list are probably less taxing than some others I was thinking of, like rack pulls, walkouts and pin presses.

yeah if you do it properly it'll probably do you some good, but it's pretty advanced stuff so I don't think you should bother with it until you're already strong

I don't see any value in it. That's why I was asking why you want to do it.
