The Acute Effects of Continuous and Intermittent Blood Flow Restriction on Sprint Interval Performance and Muscle Oxygen Responses
The purpose of this study is to compare the effects of continuous blood flow restriction to intermittent blood flow restriction during repeated sprints on performance, perception of effort, and oxygen responses. This study involves completing 3 training sessions, a consent and familiarization visit and a final testing visit.
