can someone explain the isometric contraction

1 Comment

Isometric contraction is defined as a contraction that is not associated with any movement. ... Assessment of the nature of isometric contraction in terms of its causative force is difficult because no displacement occurs except within the muscle itself and at a microscopic level.

Excellent! This animation really helped me see how it all works--its difficult to comprehend the workings of something so tiny, this really helped make it clear! Thanks!
