The Effects of Blood Flow Restriction on Aerobic and Muscular Function

The purpose of this study is to compare muscular, neuromuscular, and metabolic differences in running at a high intensity to running at a moderate intensity with blood flow restriction. We are recruiting aerobically trained males and females to helps determine these differences. In total, the study involves four visits each lasting about 90 minutes for a total of 6 hours. By participating in this study, you will be given your VO2 max.

Inclusion Qualifications:

  • 18-35 year old aerobically trained males or females (defined as an average of 150 minutes or more of moderate to vigorous aerobic activity per week for the past six months).
  • Willing to come for all four visits.

Exclusion Qualifications:

You may not participate in this research opportunity if any of the following applies to you:
  • No known cardiovascular, pulmonary, metabolic, muscular, and/or coronary heart disease.
  • No current injury that would limit exercise capacity on a treadmill.
  • Do not regularly use prescription medication.
  • Are no currently seeking medical care for a condition that would alter the response to exercise
