Celebration of Scholarship and Creative Activity 2022
Purpose The purpose of our study is to examine the connection between Blood Flow Resistance (BFR) protocols and Post-Activation Potentiation (PAP). We will use BFR to attempt to elicit the benefits of PAP of muscles using a standing medicine ball chest pass. Over the course of three weeks the data will be collected on anaerobically trained college aged men. Methods During the first week of data collection the subjects will be familiarized with the BFR protocols and also the testing method. During the second and third weeks the participants will be randomly selected to participate in the control group or the experimental group. Power output will be determined by the velocity of the chest passed medicine ball by the subject, and also the distance it is thrown after a standard warmup and BFR protocols. The data will be collected and the relationship between BFR and PAP will be determined.
