This is the MOST IMPORTANT concept I’ve ever come across in my 30 years of strength training. It has changed how I look at creating workouts and evaluating the value of training tools for different sports. Give me 10 minutes and I’ll change how you see working out as well…

Can you make a dynamic exercise more isometric by sloving down and pausing at the end og the range og motion?
Yes, I think that this is why “tempo training” where you assigned a speed to each portion of the rep was/ is effective. By slowing things down and adding pauses at the bottom you start to tap into the isometric side of the spectrum.
