    Isometric Exercise - Exercise involving an immovable object. Involves no joint movement.

    Isokinetic Exercise - Limbs move at same speed, muscles contract at or near maximal tension, only concentric contractions are involved. Special machines such as mini-gym are needed for this type of work.

    Isotonic Exercise - Exercise that uses a constant resistance causing muscle force that exceeds the weight of the barbell or dumbell and causes joint motion.

    Izod Exercise - Never heard of it
