Dr. Jim Stray Gundersen and Mark Wahlberg recently appeared on the Dr Oz show to talk about health, fitness, and blood flow restriction bands.
The topic of the Mark Wahlberg segment with Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen, and Dr. Oz was to discuss the modality of Blood Flow Restriction that Mark Wahlberg initially started using for rehab for his injuries. Mark saw how quickly he was healing with B Strong BFR and also how much stronger he was getting, not only with his specific injuries, but in all his body as a response to the systemic response one elicits properly using BFR.
Sports Medicine physician, and BFR expert Jim Stray-Gundersen, MD explains, for some, it is difficult to do a hard enough workout to get that systemic response that elicits the hormonal cascade. "B Strong BFR dominates the physical therapy arena. People are introduced to the incredible benefits of BFR when injured. I have seen this with Olympians, and developed B Strong BFR so that people can have access to the safe and effective BFR modality for "at home" use for the consumer and athlete. The key to proper BFR is getting that systemic response, getting enough fatigue in the muscle to start the hormonal cascade including growth hormone. Blood flow restriction training allows people to do minimal exercise and get to fatigue. It mimics heavy lifting, and hard exercise when only doing a fraction of a traditional workout. It is truly game changing for everyone."
