There are a number of ways to perform an eccentric isotonic exercise program.
Many people confuse isotonic exercise with isometric exercise and picture squeezing and holding a muscle.
The most common form of isotonic exercise is weight training, in which the weight serves as the fixed resistance.
Other types of isotonic exercise include body weight strength training, such as pushups or pull ups, weight machines like Bowflex and Nautilus, and the use of resistance bands.
Both phases -- flexion and extension -- are equally important as you move the weight through the range of motion in isotonic exercise.
