Isometric vs isotonic exercise?

Isometric vs isotonic exercise?

Move or not?: Muscle contractions can be divided into: •isotonic (constant tension through rom-range of motion) basically but not exactly like free wts. Most effect on weakest point •isometric (no movement) •isokinetic (motion is at aconstant speed but the force varies) requires complicated special equipment but does strengthen the muscle through its entire range equally. ...Read more

What are some differences between isotonic exercises versus isokinetic exercises?

What are some differences between  isotonic exercises versus isokinetic exercises?

Types of exercise: Isotonic= if you push against something that is immovable you are experiencing isometric contractions. This may also be called static tension; isokinetic = exercises used in therapeutic settings with a device/ machine to help control the speed of the exercises.

Could lifting weights count as strength training, or is doing squats, crunches, kickbacks, etc strength training?

Could lifting weights count as strength training, or is doing squats, crunches, kickbacks, etc strength training?

Lifting your own body weight such as in pushups, pullups, squats, lunges has similar benefit for staying fit. A good healthy diet plan is a must. Avoid junk calories and focus on nutrition with veggies and fruits. Stay regular and consistent. Good luck. ...Read more

It may help with decreasing blood pressure and maintaining some degree of strength. ...Read more

Whats the difference between isotonic and isometric exercise?

Whats the difference between isotonic and isometric exercise?

Motion-No Motion: Isometric exercise is where muscle force is exerted without changing the length of the muscle fibers. This is accomplished by pushing or pulling against an immovable object or by simultaneously contracting opposing muscles, such as by pressing the hands together. There is no joint movement. Isotonic occurs when a contracting muscle shortens against a constant load, as when lifting a weight. ...Read more

Is isometric exercise good for muscle building?

Not very good: but... it sure can increase muscle tone.

Also, not sure if it helps prevent muscle loss with dieting nor if it lowers risk of diabetes. ...Read more

Which works better: dulera (formoterol and mometasone) or albuterol?

Which works better: dulera (formoterol and mometasone) or albuterol?

Both-read why: Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) is a combination inhaler containing an steroid (for inflammation) and long acting bronchodilator. Dulera (formoterol and mometasone) is used every day to control and prevent asthma. In contrast, albuterol is for quick relief and only used as needed. This is a good combination for patients with moderate to severe persistent asthma. An allergist can assist in further explanation. ...Read more

Corticosteroid asthma medicine symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) or advair diskus; which is better?

Corticosteroid asthma medicine symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) or advair diskus; which is better?

Both are good: It's a matter of personal response to the medications. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) is an aerosol and the coordination required to inhale it is a little harder than the diskus. Symbicort (budesonide and formoterol) contains formoterol as the long-acting bronchodilator, and that works faster than the salmeterol in advair. Both come in different strengths as well. Try both and consider what each costs on your plan and the side effects you have. ...Read more

How do isometric exercises work?

How do isometric exercises work?

Muscle length static: Isometric exercises by definition work the contracting muscle with resistance while the muscle maintains a static length. A plank is a great example, whereby you hold a fixed body position by contracting a host of core muscles. Strength and endurance increase measurably with repeated isometric exercises over time. (abdominal core muscles being worked isometric ally to point of fatigue in picture). ...Read more

What are some isometric exercises?

What are some isometric exercises?

No joint movement: Iso is from the greek word meaning "same" and metric refers to length. So an isometric exercise is one in which there is a muscle contraction without a change in its length, ie the joint does not move. Flexing the biceps, for example, is an isometric exercise. Pinching & holding your shoulder blades together is a great example of a functional isometric exercise used to treat shoulder problems. ...Read more
