Low Resistance Venous Blood Flow Restriction Training (LR-VBFRT) on Biceps Brachii Muscle Performance

2019-12-05 00:03:29 | BioPortfolio


Resistance training has been widely recognized as an effective stimulus for increasing skeletal muscle size and strength. This study intends to compare the effects of high resistance training without blood flow restriction and the low resistance training with blood flow restriction training on bicep muscle performance.


The study is Randomized Control Trail, which is being conducted in RIPHAH COLLEGE OF REHABILITATION SCIENCES. Sample size of 40 individual was calculated using Epitool with 95% confidence interval (CI) and power 80%. Individual will be screened out according to inclusion criteria. Individuals will be allocated randomly into two groups, 20 in high resistance training group and 20 in low resistance training with blood flow restriction group by sealed envelope method.

High resistance training will be use in control group.Low resistance with blood flow restriction training will be used in experimental group.

Assessment will be done on baseline 2-4 days prior to the intervention and after 8 weeks of training.

Data will be analyzed on SPSS version 21.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Impaired venous blood flow or venous return (venous stasis), usually caused by inadequate venous valves. Venous insufficiency often occurs in the legs, and is associated with EDEMA and sometimes with VENOUS STASIS ULCERS at the ankle.

The vascular resistance to the flow of BLOOD through the CAPILLARIES portions of the peripheral vascular bed.

The presence of an increased amount of blood in a body part or an organ leading to congestion or engorgement of blood vessels. Hyperemia can be due to increase of blood flow into the area (active or arterial), or due to obstruction of outflow of blood from the area (passive or venous).

Flaps within the VEINS that allow the blood to flow only in one direction. They are usually in the medium size veins that carry blood to the heart against gravity.

The study of the deformation and flow of matter, usually liquids or fluids, and of the plastic flow of solids. The concept covers consistency, dilatancy, liquefaction, resistance to flow, shearing, thixotrophy, and VISCOSITY.
