Isometric Muscle Contractions?

Answer

Isometric exercise or isometrics is a component of strength training where the joint angle and muscle span do not change during contraction. The training exercise occurs without considerable shortening or change in length origin and insertion.

Isometric contractions are muscle contractions that generate force without changing length. An example is when the hand and forearm grips an object, though the joins do not move, the muscles force sufficient to prevent the object from being dropped.
An isometric contraction is a specific type of muscle contraction where neither the joint angle nor the length of the muscle changes during the actual contraction. This happens while the body is in a still pose, without any choice of motion. It is normally used in various forms of exercise training.
