Effects of Aerobic Training on Mitochondrial Adaptations
“Examining The Effect of Blood Flow Restricted Aerobic Training on Mitochondrial Adaptations in Young Healthy Adults”
This parallel-arm trial study investigates the effects of restricting arterial blood flow during cycling exercise on citrate synthase. Participants will be randomized to either a blood flow restricted or non-blood flow restricted exercise training group. Both groups will complete seven, 30-minute exercise sessions over a 14-day period.
BFR Exercise Training
Participants will complete exercise training on a recumbent bike placed on a 45 degree incline (BFR).
CTL Exercise Training
Participants will complete exercise training on a recumbent bike placed on flat ground (CTL).
