English term or phrase: a repetition matched control
Hello friends! In an article talking about blood flow restriction training I have found this sentence: "It is true that blood flow restriction augments the cardiovascular response to a repetition matched control, but the magnitude of this change is relatively comparable to what is observed with traditional resistance exercise".

I don't know the exact meaning of the phrase "a repetition matched control". Thank you for your help!

oh, they seem to be talking about exercises

When BFR is used as an adjunct to postoperative rehabilitation, it has been suggested that exercises performed at lower loads (20%-50% of 1 repetition maximum) can promote muscle hypertrophy similar to traditional strengthening protocols while reducing pain and adverse joint loading.7, 8
