Efficacy of blood flow restricted exercise?

    Research output: Contribution to journalEditorial


    In a systematic review and meta-analysis, in the sports and exercise science section this month, Slysz, Stultz and Burr suggest that blood flow restriction when combined with exercise is an effective mechanism for enhancing both muscle strength and size over relatively short duration of intervention. Almeida and colleagues randomised controlled trial on the impact of cold water immersion on heart rate variability during recovery suggests that this technique is beneficial if used for 15 min at 14 °C. Ramirez-Campillo and co-workers describe a potential technique for enhancing plyometric training in female football players with dietary creatine supplementation. Delevatti's group describe the differences in glucose control in dry land versus aquatic training in individuals with type 2 diabetes.
