Definition of «Isometric exercise»

Isometric exercise: Exercise involving muscular contractions without movement of the involved parts of the body. Isometric exercise is one method of muscular exercise. In contrast, isotonic exercise occurs when a contracting muscle shortens against a constant load, as when lifting a weight.

Isometric comes from the Greek "iso-", equal + "metron", measure = maintaining the same measure, dimension or length.
