CONCENTRIC
Muscle produces sufficient torque to overcome any load/resistance.

I.e., MUSCLE SHORTENS TO PRODUCE MOVEMENT
ECCENTRIC
Force (torque) generated by the muscle contraction is insufficient to overcome an opposing load/resistance.

I.e., MUSCLE LENGTHENS TO RESIST MOVEMENT
ISOMETRIC
Opposing forces produced by a muscle contraction and a load/resistance maintains the muscle at a constant length.

I.e., NO MOVEMENT OCCURS
ISOKINETIC
Contraction in which the resistance varies with (is directly proportional to) the torque/force produced by the muscle which moves at a constant velocity.
