Default Re: Blood Flow Restriction during Low-Intensity Resistance Exercise Increases S6K1 Phosphorylation and Muscle Protein Synthesis.

Whats really interesting to me, is that a lot of studies on protein synthesis attribute the increase in protein synthesis to enhanced blood flow (and particularly extracellular amino acid delivery). And off course, bodybuilders have always been huge on training to the "pump."

So would this support static contraction techniques as well?
