What Is Eccentric Exercise?
There are two types of muscle
contraction, concentric contraction and eccentric contraction. In concentric
contraction, muscle tension is sufficient to overcome the load, then you can
lift the load. For example, when you lift dumbbell, the muscle contraction is
concentric contraction. And in eccentric contraction, the tension generated
while isometric is insufficient to overcome the external load, and the muscle
fibers lengthen as they contract. For instance...
