Study Summary

This study will investigate if subjects who bike at 40% of heart rate reserve (HRR) with blood flow restriction (BFR) applied to bilateral thighs for 10 minutes (at 80% limb occlusion pressure) will experience greater gains in 10 rep max for dominant lower extremity leg press, greater gains in rotator cuff strength (hand held dynamometer testing for supraspinatus and external rotators) and greater gains in VO2 peak.

Michael Gill holds a Bachelors of Science in Integrated Science and Mathematics from McMaster University. During his degree he devoted considerable time modeling the pharmacodynamics of promising drug candidates. Since then, he has leveraged this knowledge of the investigational new drug ecosystem to help his father navigate clinical trials for multiple myeloma, an experience which prompted him to co-found Power Life Sciences: a company that helps patients access randomized controlled trials.
