There is an increasing interest in developing low-intensity resistance training methods to reduce both the mechanical stress on joints in individuals from different age groups and the risk of injuries in athletes. blood flow restriction resistance training (bfrrt) has been shown to be an effective method for improving muscular function, using low and moderate load intensity. therefore, the purpose of the present article is to highlight the main metabolic and neuromuscular adaptations to bfrrt and to suggest an alternative implementation of bfrrt through the modulation of the velocity of the muscle contraction.
