When we talk about tendon stiffness, we're essentially discussing how well a tendon can transmit force. A less stiff tendon can be thought of as a thin rubber band whereas a stiffer tendon would be a much thicker rubber band. Which one snaps with more force? The thicker one, of course! Adding isometric training to your program can improve tendon stiffness which is beneficial for both joint health and overall performance.
