When the myosin and actin connect, tension can Oxidative Stress and Muscle Size, Type, and Action 51 be generated. The pulling of actin towards the M line causes concentric (muscle shortening) and the pushing of actin away from the M line causes eccentric (muscle lengthening) contractions. An isometric contraction occurs when the actin and myosin filaments generate force in forming a cross bridge, but the actin filaments do not move toward or away from the M line. Forceful muscle contractions will continue until calcium is pumped back into the sarcoplasmic reticulum where it remains until a new nerve impulse acts on the ryanodine receptors and releases the Ca2+ back into the sarcoplasm.

This implies that there is movement, but that a nearly constant tone, or force, is applied throughout the range of motion. While this is not exactly true, it is nearly so during many efforts such as throwing.
