How to Remember Concentric and Eccentric Contractions

This video is taken from our Live Revision Tutorial, you may like to zip forward past the intro chat to 3.45 to start. This is super important if you are doing your Level 3 Personal Trainer Exams, and will appear in the anatomy and physiology exam. However, if you are work towards your level 2, it is still super useful (especially How to Remember Concentric and Eccentric Contractions) but please don’t panic about beginning.

Concentric contraction:
The load goes towards the Clouds
The muscle fibres are Collapsing

Eccentric Contraction:
The load goes towards the Earth
The Muscle Fibres are Elongating

Please excuse the quality of the connection at times during this live revision tutorial, especially near the beginning – it seems to get clearer and the connection more stable throughout.
