In an isometric contraction, how can the muscle stay the same length when the muscle is contracting? Can choose more than one – The muscle is not able to generate more (or the same amount) force than the load, preventing shortening of the muscle. – Calcium stops entering the sarcoplasm when the desired length is reached. – Elastic elements of the muscle stretch in response to the contraction of the muscle, so that the muscle stays the same size despite shortening sarcomeres. – The myosin heads detach from actin when they reach the desired length.
