What common activities involve isotonic contractions?

As such, an isotonic contraction is one in which the muscle maintains the same tension as it shortens. Examples of activities that involve isotonic contractions include walking, running or lifting a light object. Isotonic contractions come in two varieties: concentric and eccentric.

Likewise, what is the difference between an isometric and isotonic contraction?

An isometric contraction is when the joint angle and muscle length do not change during contraction(compared to concentric or eccentric contractions, called dynamic/isotonic movements). A perfect example of an isometric contraction is a 'wall sit' exercise.
