Wang (17) showed that any surjective isometry from the unit sphere of a normed space E onto the unit sphere of C([OMEGA]) for a compact metric space [OMEGA] can always be linearly isometrically extended to the whole space.
1966), who concluded that larvae grow isometrically.
45) Thus, muscles exercising isometrically exercise largely anaerobically and thus the fuel used within the exercising muscle can not be fats or proteins and must be glucose and glycogen during the exercise (46,47) Some of the lactate during the exercise requires aerobic metabolism of fats in the liver.
In the human body, a muscle is isometrically stronger in a position slightly stretched beyond its resting length (2).
Recently, some authors measured changes in indirect markers of muscle damage after a NMES bout applied isometrically on knee extensors (Aldayel et al.
Muscle tension was recorded isometrically with a force-displacement transducer (7003, Ugo basile, Comerio, VA, Italy) coupled to a physiograph (Gemini 2, Ugo Basile, Comerio, VA, Italy).
This decrease could either be indicative of maximum use of haemoglobin at the point when the muscle is working hardest, or reduced blood flow due to the muscle working isometrically for brief period at the point of maximum heel raise.
Tension was measured isometrically using a force-displacement transducer (FT03, Grass, Rhode Island, USA) connected to a polygraph system (RPS212, Grass, Rhode Island, USA) and a computer analyzer (Power Lab 400, MacLab system, Castle Hill, Australia).
At the beginning of each session (after warmup), optimal stimulation intensity was determined isometrically using single twitches (1-ms duration, 400 V maximum voltage and intensity ranging from 60 to 200 mA stimulations) separated by 5 s, with progressively increasing intensity until twitch torque failed to increase.
