Time under tension decreased with blood flow-restricted exercise.


OBJECTIVES Exercise to failure results in similar muscle protein synthesis responses, independent of intensity. However, low-intensity exercise likely requires more time under tension and those with injuries may be incapable of sustaining the mechanical stress to reach failure. DESIGN The purpose was to determine whether elastic knee wraps (KW) provide a… (More)
