Coach-
I realize your a busy guy, but if you happen to get back on here, what would you recommend as opposed to my 5 second a week increases?
It is very important to realize that connective tissue has a much slower metabolic rate than muscle tissue, and as a consequence will adapt/strengthen at a much slower rate as well. At the very earliest you should only increase the duration of your static holds every 3-4 weeks, and preferably 8-10 weeks.

Yours in Fitness,
