Muscle contractions can be described based on two variables: force and length. Force itself can be differentiated as either tension or load. Muscle tension is the force exerted by the muscle on an object whereas a load is the force exerted by an object on the muscle. When muscle tension changes without any corresponding changes in muscle length the muscle contraction is described as isometric. If the muscle length changes while muscle tension remains the same then the muscle contraction is isotonic…

An eccentric contraction is the motion of an active muscle while it is lengthening under load. Eccentric training is repetitively doing eccentric muscle contractions. For example in a biceps curl the action of lowering the dumbbell back down from the lift is the eccentric phase of that exercise — as long as the dumbbell is lowered slowly rather than letting it drop (i.e. the biceps are in a state of contraction to control the rate of descent of the dumbbell).

There are two types of isotonic contractions: (1) concentric and (2) eccentric.In a concentric contraction the muscle tension rises to meet the resistance then remains the same as the muscle shortens. In eccentric the muscle lengthens due to the resistance being greater than the …
