Obviously the video focuses on muscle stretching, rather than stretching tendons and ligaments (fun fact: I also have super elastic skin!) and that's probably for good reason

It doesn't impact gains, it temporarily reduces your maximal strength... for like 15 minutes.

Generally, 3 mechanisms for hypertrophy. Mechanical tension, muscle damage, metabolic stress.
Isometric holds are usually intense which is mechanical tension. If they're held for longer periods of time (usually 20-30+ seconds) you can accumulate metabolic stress.
Short holds are like low reps. They build strength near failure.
Long holds are like high reps. The build endurance.
Generally holds are used of as PART of a program, and the part of such a program will have other exercises that also stress the same muscle groups. So basically, you can program your holds like any other exercise for strength, hypertrophy, endurance, and so on.
That's a very brief synopsis.

[2019-01-27] forearm vs regular plank : bodyweightfitness https://www.reddit.com/r/bodyweightfitness/comments/4p5cl0/forearm_vs_regular_plank/

the optimal plank (i.e., the plank the creates the most work for your muscles) is when your body is parallel to the (level) floor. Your body is closer to parallel with toes and forearms/elbows on the ground. You can achieve the same result by raising the feet and keeping hands on the ground. The closer to level your body is, the more work your core will do.

Treat it like hypertrophy in any other lift.
Try to find an exercise - any exercise - that fatigues your abs (to the point of failure) in 8-15 reps (or for a static hold, something that you fail on after 30-60 seconds). Repeat for 3-5 sets. Once it gets too easy, find a way to make it hard enough that you fail again.

In that case, dynamic movements are more effective. Hanging leg raises are one of the best exercises, but you could do V-ups or ab wheel rollouts. These exercises aren't that hard to do, so do them to failure to grow despite the lower intensity.

if you flex at the hip, it will be a hip flexor exercise. If you flex at the spine (like in a reverse crunch) and then at the hip, it will be a core exercise, involving abs, obliques and hip flexors.

[2021-03-30] weightlifting - What is the opposite exercise of push ups? - Physical Fitness Stack Exchange

The row is the exercise that best antagonizes the push-up.

The reason we can't consider the pull-up a very complete antagonist exercise to the push-up is that it predominantly targets the lats. It's missing a couple of key components:

    Core involvement (both the row and the push-up require significant core involvement to execute)
    Scapular retraction (though some adduction occurs, it is less pronounced than the row).
