These lines of evidence suggest that, in the resting state, improving cardiovascular function with leg endurance training might enhance local blood circulation in strength-trained arm muscles. Since blood supply is beneficial for muscle hypertrophy (Stebbings et al., 2013), whether chronic changes in baseline circulation have an effect on systemic interference during endurance and strength training should be considered.
