    What are static holds?

    What are static holds? Are they when you just lift the weight but don't lower it, for warming up?

    I am wondering, what kind of TIME would be optimal to use for these? 5-10 seconds? Or longer? Or what?

    I don't count the time. That is the point...just do them until you can't hold on anymore. The better the burn the better the build. Ya'dig??!!
