There is some evidence that muscular activation during exercise is enhanced by higher levels of blood flow restriction (BFR). However, the impact of different relative levels of BFR on the acute neuromuscular response to resistance exercise is not yet fully understood. We examined the acute effects of low-intensity knee extensions [20 % of 1-repetition(More)
PURPOSE: Despite suggestions that low-intensity (LI) blood flow restricted exercise (BFRE) may be as effective as high intensity (HI) resistance exercise for the purpose of enhancing the recruitment of type II motor units (MU); individual MU acute response to LI BFRE has never been observed and/or reported. Recently, the decomposition of the surface(More)
