Research:
Although physical activity helps people to
lose weight and decrease the risk of having
obesity-related chronic diseases such as heart
disease and high blood pressure, engaging in
exercise and adherence to an exercise program is
difficult for people. Two of the most common
barriers to engage
in regular
moderate- to
vigorous physical
activity are the lack
of time and fear of injury.
A recently developed training methodology, which
restricts muscular blood flow during training, has challenged
many of the well-accepted principles of exercise training and has indicated that this technique
may be an effective alternative training technique for improving quality of life. Blood flow
restriction training (BFR) training has greatly reduced the resistance training exercise intensity
needed to potentiate physiological improvements in skeletal muscle strength and size. In
addition, this novel training technique also decreased the time requirement per session (1520min) to improve cardiorespiratory fitness.
My current research interest:
I am interested in investigating the physiological
mechanisms responsible for adaptations in
response to different training modes such as
walking and resistance training in combination with
blood flow restriction (BFR).
Primary Research Interest:

Neuromuscular changes and endocrine
responses to exercise training.

Effects of different models of exercise
training on body composition and diabetes in
adults.
 Using different training techniques such as blood flow restriction (BFR) training to
prevent age-related unavoidable changes such as muscle loss (sarcopenia) and bone loss.
 Effects of BFR training on body composition and performance.
Secondary Research Interest:
 Designing new exercise and physical
activity programs to improve body
composition and decrease the risk of
diabetes.
CURRENT RESEARCH STUDIES ARE
INVESTIGATING THE FOLLOWING
PHYSIOLOGICAL PARAMETERS BY USING
DIFFERENT TECHNIQUES:
 A Comparison of the Effects of Walking
Exercise with and without Blood Flow Restriction on
Oxygen Consumption and Energy Expenditure by
Using Metabolic Cart, Muscle Function by Using
Electromyography (EMG), Fatigue, and Arterial
Function by Pulse Wave Analysis.
 Acute Effect of Whole Body Vibration with or
Without Blood Flow Restriction on Arterial Elasticity
and Cardiovascular Parameters such as Heart Rate,
Blood Pressure, Stroke Volume etc.
