Re: Blood Flow Restriction during Low-Intensity Resistance Exercise Increases S6K1 Phosphorylation and Muscle Protein Synthesis.
That's a great point. It is possible that the reactive hyperemia that occurs after occulsion allows for greater neutrient delivery. It would be intersting to perform a study involving a glucose challenge test and occulusion to see if the occulusion improves glucose uptake.
Not sure about the static contraction technique- would you say blood flow is restricted during a staic contraction?
