In brief: Yes

Isometric exercise is a form of exercise involving the static contraction of a muscle without any visible movement in the angle of the joint.
This type of workout is useful for rehabilitation and increases muscular strength. Unless you are an astronaut in zero gravity, nasa concluded isometrics promote muscle growth but failed to prevent a decrease in the amount of contractile proteins in muscle.
