Is Blood Flow Restriction training a fad or is it a revolutionary way to effectively reap the benefits of exercise? Olympic physician and leading BFR expert, Jim Stray-Gundersen, MD reviews the science and mechanisms of BFR, and says the effects are real, safe and effective with proper BFR equipment.
Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen recently spoke with Dave Asprey of Bulletproof Radio, about blood flow restriction (BFR) and its practical application for sports, rehabilitation and health conditions. BFR training has broad effects–and benefits– across your biology.
“In 20 minutes, you can get more or less a full body workout and that’s all you need on a daily basis,” he says. “It’s not just about building big muscles, it’s about essentially upgrading all the systems that are involved in exercise.”
Dr. Jim Stray-Gundersen is co-founder and chief medical officer of B Strong, the founder of the S-G Performance Medicine Center, and the Sports Science Advisor for the US Ski and Snowboard Association.
As a physician, researcher and professor, he’s treated thousands of patients and authored thousands of articles over a career spanning more than 40 years. He has extensive experience in the area of sports physiology and has worked with Olympic athletes in various disciplines.
“The lessons that are learned from elite sport can be translated into helping the everyday population live healthier and better lives,” he says.
We go all in on his study and research of altitude training, local and systemic hypoxia, growth hormones, and metabolic crisis–and what all of this has to do with BFR. Is BFR a Fad or is it a revolutionary way to effectively reap the benefits of exercise? Stray-Gundersen reviews the science and mechanisms of BFR, and says the effects are real, safe and effective with proper BFR equipment!
Considered a world-renowned expert in blood flow restriction training, Dr. Stray-Gundersen believes that BFR will revolutionize training and rehabilitation everywhere.
