What are isokinetic exercises?
Beside this, what are some examples of isokinetic exercises?
For example, exercises such as dumbbell curls and squats isolate certain muscle groups and strengthen muscles throughout the range of movement, but not evenly.
Furthermore, what is an example of an isotonic exercise?
According to a medicine.net article, the muscle maintains equal tone while shortening during isotonic exercise. That means your muscles maintain the same tension throughout the exercise. Examples of isotonic exercise include squats, stair climbing, bicep curls and push-ups. Strengthens muscles.
This contrast to an isokinetic contraction in which the tension developed by the muscle as sit shortens at constant speed is maximal at all joint angles. An isometric contraction is one in which tension is developed but there is no change in the external length of the muscle.
