A research team from the U of M’s faculty of kinesiolgy and recreation management are recruiting men (18-35 years of age) to participate in a research study looking at the effects of strength of training combined with mild blood flow restriction. The team will be tracking the appearance of blood markers which may be linked to skeletal muscle hypertrophy.
