Abstract

Low load resistance exercise with blood flow restriction is a means of achieving skeletal muscle adaptation without high levels of mechanical stress and reduced training volume. The present study demonstrates that low load blood flow restriction exercise achieves similar levels of neuromuscular fatigue to high load resistance exercise at 60 minutes post-exercise, despite an approximate 25% reduction in exercise volume. This suggests that blood flow restricted exercise may be used as a tool for athletic populations looking to manage total training stress and achieve muscular adaptations in the most effective manner.
