I'm not trying to argue minutia, but I believe isokinetic means exerting maximal force at a set velocity through the entire range of motion of a movement. Example: a bicep curl machine that supports your arms and you push a lever as hard as possible, but the speed is controlled by a machine.

I first read about in various strength texts, but here's an easier to site source:
