When you lift and then lower a weight at the gym, there are 3 phases to this repetition. The eccentric, isometric and concentric phases. Let’s use a biceps curl as an example the concentric phase is when you lift (or curl) the weight thus shortening the muscle. The isometric portion of the lift occurs when the muscle is at its shortest, neither lengthening nor shortening-as in holding the dumbbell still at the top of the curl.
