Abstract

INTRODUCTION
The most common method for increasing both muscle mass and strength is though the performance of high-intensity resistance exercise. However, recent previous studies have challenged this hypothesis and have provided evidence that low-intensity training combined with blood flow restriction (BFR) may also elicit increases in muscle size and strength.
METHOD
Therefore, this review will summarize the BFR exercise model, potential mechanisms, and suggested areas for future research.
RESULT
Even though it is very low intensity of resistance exercise with BFR could lead to improve muscle mass and power.
CONCLUSION
We can speculate that the BFR exercise could be only way to get over the limitation of high-intensity of resistance exercise.
