Blood Flow Restriction Training

Learn how to safely and effectively start using BFR for rehabilitation and training

Learning BFR Doesn’t Need to be Complicated or Expensive

When I first heard of blood flow restriction training, I have to admit I was a little skeptical. Over the years, I’ve seen a lot of fads come and go in our professions.

I’m not one to jump on a bandwagon, but as more and more evidence continued to be published, it was starting to become clear that BFR is something we should be considering.

So we started using BFR and experimenting on how to best apply it with our patients and athletes. The research speaks for itself, but more importantly, our clinical results also speak for themselves.

One of the people that I always leaned on as I was learning BFR was my friend Dan Lorenz. Dan is an amazing physical therapist and had been using BFR for years. He really knows the science inside and out. So I wanted to team up with Dan to teach you how to get started with BFR.

Unfortunately, like any other new technique, there is a lot of confusion surrounding BFR, with lots of misconceptions floating around.

That’s why we created this course. We want to help. BFR does not need to be complicated to learn or expensive to use. We don’t want either of those to be barriers to you getting started.

We’ll cover everything you need to know to learn the science, then how to safely and effectively apply BFR in both the rehab and performance settings. But more importantly, we’ll show you how we use BFR and what has worked for us so that you can get started right away and eliminate the learning curve!
