Local, Distal, Proximal, and Contralateral Effects of Low-Load Blood Flow Restriction Training on Upper Extremity Neuromuscular Performance of Healthy Women: a Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial Protocol

SUMMARY Introduction. Low-load blood flow restriction (BFR) training may induce positive neuromuscular adaptations, but proximal BFR effects are unclear. This study aims to investigate chronic effects of low-load resistance training (LLRT) with BFR on upper extremity neuromuscular performance of healthy women. Methods. This protocol for clinical trial will include 78 volunteers randomized into three groups of 26 participants: LLRT … Continued
