An isometric exercise is defined as one in which the joint angle
does not change during the application of muscle force.

For instance, you can join your hands together, pushing down
with one hand, pushing up with the other. In each arm, the

muscles providing the force are connected to the bones of the
arm by tendons. If you increase the forces but keep the

angles the same, the muscles will still contract. Explain how
this is possible.
