The Eclectic Approach: Modern Strength Training

Course Description

Improve your clinical toolbox with an evidence-based framework for blood flow restriction (BFR) training for strength training as well as in a rehabilitation setting.

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!

The course will cover:

  • A review of 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 protocols for strength and conditioning clients as well as rehabilitation
  • use of The Occlusion Cuff Elite and B Strong Blood Flow Restriction Cuffs
