Isotonic

[exercise physiology] In an isotonic contraction, tension remains unchanged and the muscle`s length changes. Lifting an object at a constant speed is an example of isotonic contractions. A near isotonic contraction is known as Auxotonic contraction. There are two types of isotonic contractions: (1) concentric and (2) eccentric. In a concent
