B Isotonic Contraction
Took the test/ passed with 100% : )
Isotonic contractions maintain constant tension in the muscle as the muscle changes length. This can occur only when a muscle's maximal force of contraction exceeds the total load on the muscle. Isotonic muscle contractions can be either concentric (muscle shortens) or eccentric (muscle lengthens).
Hope this helps! 🙂
