How beneficial are these types of workouts? I'm thinking of adding them into my regular plyo/weight training routine if they will give me overall results

They are good for certain things depending on what type of Isometric training you use. With weights if you are trying to increase power you only want to hold the rep for about 6 seconds not 10 to 30. For athletes especially basketball players its going to be more beneficial to do an Omega Set Isometric routine late in your training and really only for spot clean ups (If you are weak in a certain part of a movement, like the baseline spectrum of a squat) In order to do a correct and effective omega set workout you are going to need at least two training partners because each rep you are going to be lifting far above your max.
