Proximal, Distal, and Contralateral Effects of Blood Flow Restriction Training on the Lower Extremities: A Randomized Controlled Trial (2017)

Published by <p>The authors of the presently examined study sought to determine if BFRT impacts muscles above the cuff (instead of just below) and if it resulted in muscle growth in the limb contralateral to the cuff. Participants were healthy subjects aged 20 to 40 years old. All were recreational level athletes who were healthy; they were […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Velocity Loss as a Critical Variable Determining the Adaptations to Strength Training (2020)

Published by <p>There are many ways to monitor the intensity of a training set such as subjective level of effort or percentage of 1 repetition maximum (1RM). Monitoring movement speed during resistance training is a relatively new way to monitor exercise intensity and to theoretically maximize adaptation by stopping the set once the appropriate level of fatigue […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Run Clever – No Difference in Risk of Injury When Comparing Progression in Running Volume and Running Intensity in Recreational Runners: A Randomised Trial (2018)

Published by <p>The optimal way to progress running to keep injury rates low is unknown, and the authors of the Run Clever Trial sought to determine if progressing intensity or volume is better for reducing the rate of injury. They hypothesized that progressing by intensity would increase the rate of injury by 15% more compared to those […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Effect of Number of Sprints in an SIT Session on Change in VO2max: A Meta-Analysis (2017)

Published by <p>The authors attempted to identify all studies that have examined changes in VO2max after a period of at least 2 weeks of training consisting of repeated all out sprints ranging from 10-30 seconds in length to determine the minimal necessary and optimal dose for promoting adaptation. Electronic databases were searched for relevant available records up […] <div class="woocommerce"> <div class="woocommerce-info wc-memberships-restriction-message wc-memberships-message wc-memberships-content-restricted-message"> This content is only available to members. </div> </div> </p>

Return to Recreational Sporting Activities Following Total Shoulder Arthroplasty (2018)

Physical therapy printable handout: Using velocity cut offs in rehabilitation

Velocity Based Training: Brief Guide for Clinicians

Published by <p>Resistance training intensity can be determined by many methods which include subjective methods (such as rate of perceived exertion scales) and objective methods (such as using a percentage of maximum weight lifting ability). A newer, less commonly used method is velocity based monitoring (VBM) which has several advantages over more traditional methods.
