– A concentric muscle contraction is a type of muscle activation that increases tension on a muscle as it shortens. Concentric contractions are the most common types of muscle activation athletes perform in a gym when lifting weights. For example, a concentric contraction of the bicep occurs when the arm holding a weight is lifted from the full-extended (downward) position by the leg, up to the shoulder area. During the motion of lifting the weight from the leg to the shoulder, contraction occurs, and the process of muscle building and development occurs.
