For nearly half a century, high mechanical loading and mechanotransduction pathways have guided exercise recommendations for inducing muscle hypertrophy. However, emerging research on low-intensity exercise with blood flow restriction challenges this paradigm. This article will describe the BFR exercise model and discuss its efficacy, potential mechanisms, and clinical viability.
