Influence of Blood Flow Restriction Level on Muscle Fatigue During an Intermittent Isometric Exercise Taken to Failure

SUMMARY Background. Low-intensity exercise with blood flow restriction (BFR) may improve¬†muscle mass and strength but an early neuromuscular fatigue may occur. Since the mechanisms of fatigue during BFR exercise is not yet fully understood we examined, concomitantly, the coefficient of variation of force (CVf) and surface electromyographic signal¬†(sEMG) during an intermittent isometric handgrip exercise (IIHE) … Continued
