This research focused on the metabolic costs associated with squatting to failure and squatting to failure with blood flow restriction cuffs. Each individual training program lasted a total of three weeks; consisting of two training days per week. Two groups were used for this study; proximal occlusion of legs and non-occluded legs. The occlusion group left the cuffs on until their final set was complete and pressure was maintained at 140 mmHg. The final session was monitored by a metabolic cart which recorded oxygen consumption levels throughout the workout. Oxygen consumption levels can be used to estimate aerobic costs, which can be combined with anaerobic cost estimates to produce a total metabolic cost profile for this squatting to failure program.
