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.
We are broadcasting live and interviewing the speakers of the Memorial Hermann's Sports Medicine Update. It is a great way to continue improving your athletic training practice. There are always new topics, new aspects of old topics and great re-freshers.
We plan to release the lecture and then the interview. Through the course of the summer the podcasts will be shorter, more frequent, and a lot more raw (less editing).
