CHPS RESEARCH STUDIES

Blood Flow Restriction and Muscle Function

Consider taking part in a research study that is examining changes in muscle function during blood flow resistance training and traditional resistance training. This study involves four total visits (1 consent and 3 exercise visits). Each visit will be about one hour (about 4 total hours for this study) and involve completing 4 sets of leg extensions with or without blood flow restriction. We are recruiting males and females who regularly complete resistance exercise.

One condition will involve completing 75 repetitions at 30% of the heaviest weight you can lift with blood flow restriction; one condition will involve completing four sets of exercise and as many repetitions as possible during each set at 30% of the heaviest weight you can lift with blood flow restriction; and one condition will involve completing four sets of exercise and as many repetitions as possible during each set at 70% of the heaviest weight you can lift (with no blood flow restriction).

Inclusion Qualifications:

  • Ages 18-35
  • Resistance-trained males and females that complete lower body resistance training about twice per week for at least the past six months.
  • Are willing to come in for all testing visits
  • No known cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, muscular, and/or coronary heart disease as determined by the Medical Health and Activity Questionnaire
  • Do not regularly use prescription medication other than birth control
  • Are not seeking medical care for a condition that would alter the response to exercise
  • Not currently pregnant
