CHPS RESEARCH STUDIES

Effects of Local vs Systemic Hypoxia on Neuromuscular Mechanisms

This research is examining how changes in muscle oxygenation influence performance in young adults. Typically, changes in muscle oxygen occur when traveling to elevation, but this is not easily achieved. An easier and more recent form of changing muscle oxygenation is the utilization of blood flow restriction. This study will compare how blood flow restriction and elevation affect muscle oxygenation and affect performance.
