What is BFR?
According to the course objectives on ORS website:
Personalized Blood Flow Restriction Rehabilitation (PBFR) is a paradigm shifting intervention for the rehabilitation professional with over 160 peer-reviewed articles in the scientific literature. By applying a tourniquet briefly and intermittently to an exercising limb you can induce significant and substantial strength, hypertrophy and endurance changes while using a very light load.
So what does it really feel like?
Not bad at all…at first
Then I agreed to do the Push-up Challenge like a BOSS
And this is about where i admitted defeat and moved to the modified version
And later I could barely hold my arms up for the next sessions…
If I could afford the machine and training I would have these at my school.
