The Eclectic Approach to Modern Strength Training Certificate Course

Modern Strength Training: The Eclectic Approach to Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Training


Improve your clinical toolbox with an evidence-based framework for blood flow restriction (BFR) training in the rehabilitation and strength settings. This course is for physical therapists, chiropractors, strength coaches, and athletic trainers!

Blood flow restriction training is a safe and effective technique that allows your patients and clients to achieve the same physiological adaptations associated with high intensity strength training, without the joint stress! Use it as primary or secondary training, on deload weeks, as a recovery strategy, aerobic or resistance, land or water - the options are endless!

This course is a hybrid 1.5 day (0.5 day online lecture, 1.0 day lab) educational experience that will result in CertMST certification and will cover:

A review of the exercise physiology principles of strength training
Current guidelines for traditional strength training
The history and science behind blood flow restriction training
Safety and efficacy for the patient and clinician
Application of blood flow restriction tourniquets
Determining a patient’s limb occlusion pressure (LOP) using Doppler Ultrasound
Blood flow restriction training methods and proposed clinical protocols

Course Instructor Bio

Dr. Kyle Coffey is a physical therapist, exercise physiologist, faculty member, and clinical educator who is passionate about increasing knowledge of movement, health, and wellness with patients and clinicians. Driven by research and experience, his ultimate goal is to get every person he works with to explore movement.

In addition to owning his own clinic and educational company, Motus Physical Therapy and Performance, Dr. Coffey is a full-time Lecturer and Exercise Physiology Program Director at his alma mater, the University of Massachusetts Lowell. His research interests include the role of physical activity in memory, cognition, and academic achievement particularly in the elementary through high school population. Dr. Coffey is also the Massachusetts State Representative for the New England College of Sports Medicine (NEACSM).

What began as self-application of blood flow restriction (BFR) training to stay healthy while recovering from an upper extremity injury, turned into a love for the research and a desire to safely and effectively apply in both the rehab and training populations. Time is our greatest resource, in life and in the clinic - an adjunct to traditional strength training was needed to help people train and rehab smarter, not harder. Thus Modern Strength Training was born!

Outside work, Kyle likes to spend time with his wife, son, and dog. He enjoys cycling, running, reading, gardening, and landscaping. He has a good sense of humor and challenges you to give him a good one-liner
