Effect of restricted blood flow on muscle hypotrophy & O2 saturation level on weight training


Author(s): Dr. Gaurav Pant and Ugen Dorjee Bhutia

Abstract: The main purpose of the study was to find out the effect of the restricted blood flow on muscle hypotrophy and O2 saturation level. Ten people from bharati vidyapeeth gym were selected randomly, age 23 to 26 years. For the purpose of establishing reliability of the data subject was asked to perform bicep curl of 4 sets 1st set 30 rep 2nd 3rd & 4th 15 rep each with 30sec rest in between sets. Second test (without occlusion) training was conducted after one week, proper rest was given to the working muscle (bicep).The test of left and right bicep was measured pre and post exercise (with and without) thera-band. O2 saturation level was measured using pulse Oximeter pre and post exercise (with and without) thera-band. The average measurement of the various test conducted were as following left biceps pre workout ± 14.52, with occlusion training ± 14.91 and without occlusion training ± 14.67. The average measurement of right bicep pre workout ±14.68, with occlusion training ±15.02 and without occlusion training ±14.81. SpO2 pre workout ±97%, occlusion training ±97%, and without occlusion training ±96%.The result was formulate using one way ANOVAs. The result revealed that there was a significant difference between the three variables of the SpO2 F > Fcrit (F= 8.42 F crit = 3.35).While there was no significant difference found among the variables of left and right biceps. It was seen that restriction of blood flow caused increase in blood flow on the concentrated muscle group.
