The Effect of Blood Flow Restriction Training on Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness

This research is examining two different low load blood flow restriction training protocols in untrained young adults. Both methods are commonly used but this study will compare these two protocols on delayed onset muscle soreness. The study consists of 1 baseline day (60 minutes), 1 training day (60 minutes), and 5 follow-up days (30 minutes). Participants will complete one session of low-load resistance training leg extensions with blood flow restriction during the training day then complete 5 follow-up visits to monitor indicies of delayed onset muscle soreness.
