Does stretch have any effect on muscle contraction? “Types” of muscle contraction? Other considerations (i.e. effects of exercise, Other denervation, etc.) denervation, Types of Muscle Contraction Types Isometric contraction: change in tension with NO change change in muscle length. Isotonic contraction: change in muscle length with NO change in muscle tension. Types of Muscle Contraction Types Isotonic contraction: TWO DISTINCT TYPES! TWO Concentric contraction tension develops & is Concentric maintained as muscle shortens. shortens Eccentric contraction tension develops & is maintained Eccentric as muscle lengthens. lengthens Isometric vs. Isotonic Isometric Muscle Contraction Considerations Muscle Contraction (shortening) vs. Elasticity (stretching) Elasticity What are the effects of multiple stimuli on a muscle?
