Transcript of Isometric Contraction Prezi

Benefits of Isometric Muscle Contractions Allow you to prolong the time under tension of a particular area and thus add to the time the muscle is under tension as well.

They can be used for rehabilitation as well as general strengthening without placing stress on the joints.

Planking Cons of Isometric Muscle Contraction Summary Definition According to sportmedicine.com, an isometric muscle contraction, or static exercise, is one in which the muscle fires but there is no movement at a joint.

Isometric contractions are done in static positions, rather than being dynamic through a range of motion.

An example of isometric exercise includes pushing against a wall. In the isometric contraction, the muscle neither shortens nor lengthens; it is static
