  • In the last decade muscle training performed using a combination of low external loads and partial restriction of blood flow to the exercising limb has gained increasing interest, since it leads to significant gains in muscle strength and muscle mass. The cellular mechanisms responsible for the muscular adaptations induced by this training paradigm are not fully understood. This study shows that 3 weeks of high‐frequency, low‐intensity muscle exercise with partial blood flow restriction induces… CONTINUE READING
