User: Plyometrics is an isometric exercise technique.

Weegy: False. Plyometrics is not an isometric exercise technique. Isometrics is a type of exercise that causes muscle contraction without a change in the length of the muscle. Plyometrics involve large, fast movements such as jumping and hopping. [ The muscles shorten and lengthen as the joints move during plyometric training. ]

User: The principal difference between isometric and isotonic exercises is the __________. A. use of free weights and weight machines B. rate of calories burned during exercise C. change in muscle length during exercise D. type of muscles exercised

Weegy: The principal difference between isometric and isotonic exercises is the change in muscle length during exercise. [ Letter C. Isometric exercise, or "isometrics", is a type of strength training in which the joint angle and muscle length do not change during contraction. Isometric exercises are opposed by a force equal to the force output of the muscle and there is no net movement. This mainly strengthens the muscle at the specific joint angle at which the isometric exercise occurs, with some increases in strength at joint angles up to 20? in either direction depending on the joint trained.[4] In comparison, isotonic exercises strengthen the muscle throughout the entire range of motion of the exercise used. ]
