DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN ISOMETRIC AND ISOTONIC MUSCLE CONTRACTION
A muscular contraction in which the length of the muscle does not change.
In contrast to isotonic contraction, isometric contractions generated force without changing the length of the muscle, common in the muscles of the hand and forearm responsible for grip. The muscle contraction required to grip but not move a heavy object prior to lifting would be isometric. Isometric contraction are frequently used to maintain posture.
