- The objective of this webinar is to introduce blood flow restriction training to the rehabilitation professional, providing context to its integration and then diving deep into the science of fatigue with respect to BFR training.
- The practitioner will be able to describe the underlying mechanisms currently thought to be responsible for the benefits of BFR training with respect to hypertrophy as compared with a low-load free-flow alternative.
- Be able to understand that load does not dictate hypertrophic potential and can be applied throughout the rehab process as a bridge to performance.
