Before I get into today's podcast, I thought I'd take this opportunity to let you all know that my new shipment of upper body cuffs is not far away. So I thank you for your patience.
Today's episode builds on episode 7 on the positive effects of BFR on bone reformation. This article review is a case study of a bodybuilder who had a lower body fracture and not only was able to continue training with BFR but also experienced an accelerate healing environment.
Loenneke, J. P., Young, K. C., Wilson, J. M., & Andersen, J. C. (2013). Rehabilitation of an osteochondral fracture using blood flow restricted exercise: a case review. Journal of bodywork and movement therapies, 17(1), 42-45.
In "How you do BFR" I interview Dr. Chris Brandner to discuss a variety of topics associated with Blood Flow Restriction. Chris did his PhD. in the area of BFR and he has seen quite an evolution over the last 10 years. He brings a wealth of academic and practical experience in this area so I am also honoured to have someone of his credentials on the podcast.
If you want to get in touch with Chris, his best social media contacts are:
If you want to purchase a set of BFR cuffs I have my own brand - Sports Rehab Tourniquet and you buy them at www.sportsrehab.com.au.
