application of IPC to determine its efficacy as a potential preexercise priming strategy. The first study to investigate IPC in a human exercise model demonstrated a 3% improvement in maximal oxygen uptake ( V ˙ O 2 max ) after a 3 × 5-minute bilateral leg-cuff inflation (220 mm Hg) protocol. 4 A

counterpulsation (ECP). The ECP involves the rapid distal to proximal electrocardiogram (ECG)-synchronized inflation of cuffs that surround the calves, thighs, and buttocks to supra-systolic pressures of up to 300 mm Hg during diastole and simultaneous cuff deflation during systole. Numerous patient populations

were performed with a pressure cuff applied to the upper right thigh using an automated rapid cuff inflation system (Hokanson, Bellevue, WA). The venous occlusion technique required the inflation of the cuff to 70 mm Hg to restrict venous outflow (while still allowing arterial inflow). By monitoring

’ Base Salaries The participants reported an average base salary of $65,866.27 ( SD  = $17,640.21). This average salary is notably higher than the $23,000.00 reported by Metzler and Freedman (1985) , which is $56,657.09 after adjusting for inflation. A 3 × 2 (Institution Type × Gender) factorial ANOVA

variance inflation factor method (variance inflation factor = 1.00). The criterion for statistical significance was set at P  ≤ .05. Results The results of the reliability analysis for IMTP and ISqT measures are presented in Table  1 . All measures displayed acceptable reliability, with intraclass

 Hg was chosen for the SHAM protocol, as it provides a sensation of cuff inflation with no vascular occlusion. 5 , 8 , 19 To reduce subject expectations, subjects were told that the purpose of the study was to compare the effects of different levels of occlusion on subsequent sprint performance

assumptions of collinearity. The variance inflation factor values ranged from 1.17 to 2.10, and the tolerances ranged from 0.478 to 0.858, well outside the thresholds of >4 and <0.10, respectively, considered indicative of likely multicollinearity ( O’Brien, 2007 ). Aiming to obtain different groups, and

. Tourniquets were placed directly inferior to the gluteal fold and were fastened tightly around the thigh using Velcro straps. Inflation was controlled by a personalized tourniquet system (PTSii; Delfi Medical Innovations Inc, Vancouver, Canada) set to the individualized lowest effective limb occlusion

net force–time curve to prevent inflation of the associations between PF and the time-specific variables, which would occur if gross force was used. Net PF was reported as the maximum force across the recorded net force–time curve. Subsequently, net force at 50, 100, 150, 200, and 250 milliseconds was
