7 Tiger Moves

The 7 Tiger Moves of John McSweeney

The Miracle Seven from the book of the same name are martial artist John McSweeney's 7 "Tiger Moves." While none are isometric exercises, they are all what John E. Peterson calls "Dynamic Visual Resistance" or DVR exercises. I've started working through them but haven't devoted myself to them yet.

Using exercises like these and isometric exercises are problematic because you have no short term method of measuring your progress. Since you don't see results, it is easy to quit early instead of devoting yourself to them and push for long term gains.

Today I started performing the first of the Tiger Moves. I doubt I'll see even long term gains unless I dedicate myself to them and perform them for the full 3 sets of 10 repetitions the book recommends you start with, but for now it's just a trial to see how to perform the exercises.

Exercise:
Full Range Pectoral Contractions: 10
Shoulder Roll: 10
Wrist Twist: 10

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added"
checkbox and now each time a comment is
added I get three emails with the same comment.

Is there any way you can remove people from that
service? Thank you!
