Reliability of the one-repetition maximum test based on muscle group and gender.
The purpose of the present study was to examine the influence of muscle group location and gender on the reliability of assessing the one-repetition maximum (1RM) test. Thirty healthy males (n = 15)Expand

Effects of exercise with and without different degrees of blood flow restriction on torque and muscle activation
An unresolved question in resistance training combined with blood flow restriction (BFR) is what percentage of estimated arterial occlusion pressure provides the most robust acute muscular response.

Muscular adaptations to fatiguing exercise with and without blood flow restriction
The purpose of this study was to determine the muscular adaptations to low‐load resistance training performed to fatigue with and without blood flow restriction (BFR). Middle‐aged (42–62 years) menExpand

The acute muscle swelling effects of blood flow restriction.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the potential mechanisms behind the blood flow restriction (BFR) stimulus in the absence of exercise. Nine participants completed a 10 minute time controlExpand

The influence of exercise load with and without different levels of blood flow restriction on acute changes in muscle thickness and lactate
The aim of this study was to compare exercise with and without different degrees of blood flow restriction (BFR) on acute changes in muscle thickness (MTH) and whole blood lactate (WBL). FortyExpand

The effects of elastic band resistance training combined with blood flow restriction on strength, total bone‐free lean body mass and muscle thickness in postmenopausal women
Elastic band (EB) training is a common form of resistance training used by the elderly, individuals with joint problems or those recovering from injury. EB training performed at low intensities byExpand

Muscle damage after low-intensity eccentric contractions with blood flow restriction.
Discrepancies exist whether blood flow restriction (BFR) exacerbates exercise-induced muscle damage (EIMD). This study compared low-intensity eccentric contractions of the elbow flexors with andExpand

Effects of 12 weeks of combined exercise training on visfatin and metabolic syndrome factors in obese middle-aged women.
Visfatin is a highly expressed protein with insulin-like functions located predominantly in visceral adipose tissue and has been linked to obesity and increased health risks. The purpose of thisExpand
