?Time of exhaustion (tLIM) during exercise at VO2max is usually what limits an athlete at the end of a hard effort or race ?. Although it may seem logical that High Intensity Training (HIT)??‍♀️ would be a better intervention than endurance training ??‍♂️ to improve tLim, only a couple of studies have supported it . ?Capillary density improves with endurance training but the same can be said with HIT training plus the added cardiac output and mitochondrial function? . Whether it be endurance training or HIT the recommendations of exercise training at improving cardiovascular fitness has been conducted at intensities above 50% VO2max . ?However recent studies have shown eye ? opening results of using blood flow restriction (BFR) with low intensity exercise at below 50% VO2max were able to improve VO2max and exercise tolerance or time of exhaustion (tLim) . One study ? looked into a 4 week program that examined cycling ?? low-intensity with BFR. The Control Group had no significant changes on time to exhaustion whereas the BFR Group had marked improvement training at the same intensity . ? So what??? ? Well, if all these results are true then I think it’s well worth the investment ? to integrate a steady dose of it in your recovery routine. ? The benefits are too real to ignore and the research is growing ?? It’s a wait and see, but I’ve already seen enough clinically to say it’s here to stay. It should be part of every endurance athletes training regimen . Athlete: @mauchjustin
