The purpose of this study was to compare the effects four weeks of low-intensity blood flow restriction (BFR) training and high-intensity traditional resistance training on strength, power, and muscle size. Participants (n = 13) completed eight training sessions of exercising with a rowing ergometer and deadlifts with either BFR (30% 1-rep max and 40% power) or with the control group (60% 1-rep max and 80% power). Both groups showed improvements power (p = .001), strength, (p = .001), and muscle size (p = .007). The BFR group had greater improvement in power than the control group (p = .035).
