How effective is isometric exercise for fitness?

Dr. Joseph Woods
Pathology 29 years experience
Has its limits.: Isometric exercise, like weight lifting, etc. Can definitely build muscles, which helps capabilities/fitness, but is limited because it does not help cardiovascular health, and during the exercise, blood pressure can be greatly increased. This can be very disastrous in people who are vulnerable, like those with aneurisms.
