In brief: Depends What Muscle

Isometrics focuses on isolating muscle groups and strength training without changing the length of the muscle like you would with range of movement type workouts.
The resistance can be from your own body structure, an fixed object such as a wall, or work out equipment that provides this resistance. The beauty of this particular exercise is that you could do it almost anywhere even sitting a desk.
