    So we did a lab experiment.

    We used dynameters for the grip strength tests, the back stength tests and the leg strength tests. I assume these are isometric strengths.

    However we also did , pushups, vertical jumps and standing vertical jumps.
    Are pushups classfied as isokinetic and the jumps as isotonic.

    Or is it the other way around.

    Isokinetic require special equipment...you move a resistance through a range of motion at a certain speed....or something like that.

    isometric = constant muscle length
    isokinetic = constant velocity of motion
    isotonic = constant muscle tension

    Neither pushups nor vertical jumps are isotonic or isokinetic. And your strength tests probably weren't isometrics either.
