Title: Everything you need to know about Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training
Presented by: Dr. James Stray-Gundersen, MD, B Strong
Dr. James Stray-Gundersen received his Board Certification in General Surgery in 1985. He then completed Post-Doctoral Fellowships in Cardiovascular Physiology and Human Nutrition at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School (UTSW) where he received appointments as Assistant Professor in the Departments of Orthopedic Surgery, and Cardiology. He is also a researcher and expert in the area of BFR training.
Blood flow restriction training, or BFR training, is an exercise modality that uses a manipulation of the body’s circulatory system in combination with light resistance exercise—such as bodyweight work—to achieve improvements in strength and fitness similar to the results of high intensity strength training (traditional heavy weightlifting).
In this webinar, Dr. Stray-Gundersen will discuss everything you need to know about Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training to reduce wear and tear and get your patients stronger with less weight. Including the latest research, who can benefit, safety concerns and how to properly use BFR training.
