Re: Growth hormone and muscle function responses to skeletal muscle ischemia.
This is really good research!
What do you think the mechanism is?
- may be hormones like GH (this study supports that)
- Perhaps the reprefusion is playing a role on protein synthesis?
- Build up of some metabolite (perhaps lactic acid)
If you try this, let me know how it goes!
I would imagine you would want to perform more isolation movements when doing this, and that you would not want to lift super heavy, in fear of really increasing blood pressure. Particularly with upper body movements, where blood pressure tends to be greater due to lower musculature and less vascularity.
