The American College of Sports Medicine recommends lifting a weight of at least 70% of one's concentric one repetition maximum to achieve muscular hypertrophy as it is believed that anything below this intensity does not produce significant muscle growth. Recent studies have found muscle hypertrophy to occur with low-intensity 'aerobic-like' exercise with the application of blood flow restriction (BFR) to the limbs. Previous research with low load resistance training has shown that elastic knee… CONTINUE READING
