What does isokinetic mean?
Exercise with possible varying resistance and a fixed maximum speed.
In exercise terms it is a motion during which the speed is set and the resistance is variable. If the person does not achieve the pre set speed the exercise is classed as isotonic
When the pre set isokinetic speed is reached. This means the contraction is only isokinetic once the speed is achieved and in real terms maintained. In truth the isokinetic contraction is actually a window of the total motion used in the contraction not the whole contraction. This is because it takes some motion to reach the speed and some to decelerate at the end from the speed. The part in the middle (between acceleration and…
What are the disadvantages of isokinetic testing that are overcome when using isoinertial testing methods?

This statement is not correct. Isokinetic is a word used to describe exercise in which the movement is kept at a constant speed. No matter how much force is applied the speed stays the same. This means that a joint moves in isokinetic exercise but at a constant speed. If there is no joint movement then the exercise is called isometric
isokinetic muscle contractions are muscle contractions at a constant rate or speed. Obviously all sports vary at least a little in each muscle movement. but for example, rowing could be one, long distance running, cycling, jump rope, or other sports in which the range of motion is generally the same with each play/repetition.
Which type of resistance training requires muscles to move against resistance through an entire range of motion?
The type of resistance training that involves muscles to move against resistance through an entire range of motion is called Isokinetic exercise. Here's the definition from the Glencoe Health Book: Isokinetic exercise- activity that involves resistance through an entire range of motion. I hope that helped you! :)
I have never seen them called that but the mechanism is similar if the exercise is of an ascending strength curve. I have never seen them called that but the mechanism is similar if the exercise is of an ascending strength curve. No they are not isokinetic as the bands give linear altering resistance through range. An isokinetics machine alters it's resistance in relation to the torque level it receives in real time. In essence…
