Thanks for sharing. I keep asking myself from a view point other than hemodynamic principle and share my question here.
If an individual is able to perform 10 reps with 30 kg, then his 1 rep max can be 40 kg. With certain amount of cuff pressure, say 100 mm Hg, if he is able to perform only 6 reps, then his 1 rep max with 100 mm Hg can be 36 kg. Based on this example, can we hypothesize that;
a. 100 mm Hg = 4 kg
b. Performing 10 reps using 30 kg = Performing 6 reps using 30 kg with 100 mm Hg
c. Performing 1 rep using 40 kg = Performing 1 rep using 36 kg with 100 mm Hg
I recently noted in an article that this occlusion training was used by men during space travels (perhaps because they couldn’t carry much exercise tools?). Really amazing idea!
