Explore the possibilities and mechanisms of blood flow restriction (BFR) training for strength training (in healthy clients), rehabilitation (post-injury and post-surgery), and the prevention of age-related muscle sarcopenia. Discover how the application of a pressure cuff to the proximal thigh or arm can result in anaerobic and concomitant metabolite changes associated with muscle hypertrophy.
Articulate the efficacy and appropriate use of blood flow restriction for athletic training, rehabilitation and age-related sarcopenia.
Synthesize the mechanisms of action of blood flow restriction training upon muscle hypertrophy and strength.
Identify risks, safety issues and contraindications for the application of Blood Flow Restriction training.
