Improve hamstring and hip extension strength with low load BFR Hip Thruster

Hi, This is the last episode for 2020 and brings to a close a big year for me. I've started my accredited BFR workshop, seen BFR Podcast and the product demand grow. I've also designed my first piece of strength training equipment called the G-Thruster. It is a machine to help with the Hip Thruster movement and the feedback has been great. So today's episode is a case study looking at how using the Hip Thruster (G-Thruster) could be utilised to improved strength and hypertrophy of the lower body. It utilises a high-frequency (daily) and low load training methodology as per other BFR studies. Other strength-based studies (i.e.Squat, Leg Extension and Bench Press), high frequency (daily or twice daily) training using low load BFR has reported significant improvements in muscle hypertrophy and strength measures. This case study also incorporates a few other important points: The muscular response to BFR training has been shown to be both distal and proximal to the cuffs. Furthermore, it is the exercise that uses specific muscles that gets the desired response. In other words, if you want response of the gluteals with BFR you need to incorporate Hip Extension and Glute biased exercise. Hip thruster movement has been shown to be an effective PAP for sprinting, which leads to a potentially good exercise to incorporate into strength training programs. Furthermore, the hip thruster is a great strength stimulus for athletes who can't load heavy axially through the spine (e.g. squat). The case study involved the following: 2 weeks - daily (3 x week - twice daily) Hip thruster - double (+40kg) and single leg (+20kg) Reps x sets - Set 1 = 20-30reps, Set 2-4 = 10-15reps BFR - continuous pressure (50% AO) using a 10cm wide cuff Measurements: Girth: Glutes (max circumference) and thigh (3 points: proximal third, mid-thigh & distal third) Strength measure - Single Leg isometric maximal force output Glute (knee at 90deg) Hamstring (knee at 170-180 deg) Although the case study on me, my measurements are relatively stable so any changes would be due to the new stimulus. The podcast goes through the results however I did see some very interesting girth and strength improvements lending support to using this type of training for athletes that are injured or trying to quickly accelerate change during specific time periods. In closing for the year, thank you for your support. I appreciate your interaction and comments. See you in 2021 for a bigger and better year.

BFR & Electrostimulation - combining modalities to accelerate injury recovery

Hi everyone, With this episode of BFR Radio I was inspired by a recent post from a colleague who started to use a combination modality of BFR and Electrostimulation (EMS) for an athlete who was going through post ACL surgery rehab. Traditionally EMS requires a high level of intensity for it to be effective which is problematic for those who are in the acute postoperative stage. This is where the authors thought that the combination of BFR with a lower level of EMS may prove to be useful. Before you head off and listen to the podcast, a few exciting updates: This week I am at the ASCA annual conference on the Gold Coast. I will have my Sports Rehab Tourniquets there to try and I am also debuting a new strength machine that I have developed. To date I haven't not seen this machine before so potentially a world debut. I am running a Brisbane BFR workshop on Saturday 23 November. Tickets can be purchased online only through eventbrite. There are lots of links through my social media and blog post.

The Effects of Blood Flow Restricted Electrostimulation on Strength and Hypertrophy. Slysz JT, Burr JF. J Sport Rehabil. 2018 May 1;27(3):257-262. doi: 10.1123/jsr.2017-0002. Epub 2018 May 22. Abstract CONTEXT: The combined effect of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) and blood flow restriction (BFR) on muscle mass and strength has not been thoroughly investigated. OBJECTIVE: To examine the effects of combined and independent BFR and a low-intensity NMES on skeletal muscle adaptation. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Subjects had each leg randomly allocated to 1 of 4 possible intervention groups: (1)cyclic BFR alone, (2)NMES alone, (3)BFR + NMES, or (4)control. Each leg was stimulated in its respective intervention group for 32minutes, 4days per week for 6weeks. Mean differences in size (in grams) and isometric strength (inkilograms), between week 0 and week 6, were calculated for each group.

BFR & Electrostimulation - combining modalities to accelerate injury recovery

Optimising BFR pressures for aerobic exercise

Hi everyone, Things have been a little busy lately hence the late podcast. With my normal S&C work commitments and a few workshops to prepare for I haven't been able to put together my normal schedule of podcasts. Today's podcast actually appeared on another podcast Snippit Sports Science of which my mate, Jared and I produce. Speaking about workshops, I will be in Sydney on Saturday October 13th (2 weeks time) to do a new BFR workshop. Tickets are available through Eventbrite (click on this link to buy your ticket). Alternatively if you know of someone who'd benefit from this workshop I'd appreciate you letting them know and sharing the link. Today's episode from a practical standpoint helps to understand the optimisation of Blood Flow Restriction pressures when doing aerobic (stationary-based) exercise. I personally have found that dropping my pre-determined BFR pressure by around 20mmHg works best and that if I stayed at this pressure (I usually do my strength training at) it is just doesn't feel right and is too high. The debate of BFR pressures is an ongoing on and this article helps shed some light as to some great evidence. Effectsof DifferentPercentagesof BloodFlowRestrictionon EnergyExpenditure. Pfeiffer PS1, Cirilo-Sousa MS1, Santos HHD2. Int J Sports Med.2019 Mar;40(3):186-190. doi: 10.1055/a-0828-8295. Epub 2019 Jan 31. Abstract The study aimed to analyze the effect of differentlevels of bloodflowrestriction(BFR) on energyexpenditure(EE) and subjective perceptions of discomfort (SPD) during aerobic exercises. A sample group of 24 young men was required to walk on a treadmill for 14 min at 40% of their maximum speed, with 4 differentpercentagesof BFR (0, 50, 80 and 100%) applied in the lower limbs (LL) once a week with a 7-day interval between the 4 evaluations. EE data were collected during the exercise periods; SPD data were collected after the exercises. There was a significant increase in EE at 50, 80 and 100% BFR compared to the condition without BFR, and between 50 and 100% BFR; however, there were no differences between 50 and 80% and 80 and 100% BFR. Discomfort showed a significant increase according to the increase in BFR. During the walking exercises with BFR, the EE strongly increased until 50% of BFR; after this level the additional increases slowed. It can be concluded that when performing aerobic exercises with BFR, there is no need to use BFR levels above 50% to reach satisfying level of EE with only a moderate level of discomfort to the practitioner.

How to decrease muscle loss with passive BFR. "How you do BFR" guest is John Vincent

Hi everyone, Today's article review was selected after a conversation with a colleague around the use of passive BFR to attenuate loss with injury or limb immobilisation. This is also very relevant with my recent knee surgery and I've used Blood Flow Restriction heavily to assist my recovery. The article I review is called: Prevention of disuse muscular weakness by restriction of blood flow. Kubota A1, Sakuraba K, Sawaki K, Sumide T, Tamura Y. Abstract PURPOSE: The aim of the present study was to compare the effects of periodic restriction of blood flow to lower extremities with those of isometric exercise on disuse muscular atrophy and weakness induced by immobilization and unloading. METHODS: The left ankle of each of 15 healthy males was immobilized for 2 wk using cast, and subjects were instructed to walk using crutches with non-weight bearing during this period. Subjects were divided into three groups: a restriction of blood flow (RBF) group (application of external compressive force of 200 mm Hg for 5 min followed by 3 min of rest, repeated five times in a single session, two sessions per day for 14 d); an isometric training (IMT) group (20 "exercises" of 5-s isometric contraction of the knee extensor, flexor, and ankle plantar flexor muscles followed by rest, twice a day, daily for 2 wk); and a control (CON) group (no intervention). We measured changes in muscle strength, thigh/leg circumferences, and serum growth hormone levels. On "How you do BFR", my guest is Jonny Vincenti who recently opens his facility for me to host a BFR workshop in Perth. He is very generous with his time so if you have any questions please reach out to him. A little about Jonny: John Vincenti has over 20 years of experience in the Strength & Conditioning industry, currently running his own Strength and Conditioning facility in Perth, Western Australia - V-Athletic Strength & Performance. V-Athletic is a private sector facility, concerned with the complete athletic performance requirements from junior to elite athletes. John is also currently in his third Season as Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at the Fremantle Roosters Rugby League Club (NRLWA) and the Head Strength and Conditioning Coach at WESTSTAR Football Academy – an elite West Australian junior Australian Rules Football Academy.

Accelerate recovery from injury with BFR. "How you do BFR" guest is Nicolai Morris

Hi there, Following exercise, neutrophils are the first immune cells to initiate the tissue remodeling process via several mechanisms including an increased production of cytokines and recruitment of monocytes/macrophages, which facilitate the phagocytosis of foreign particles, the differentiation of myoblasts, and the formation of new myotubes. This review discusses the mechanisms through which metabolic stress and immune cell recruitment may induce skeletal muscle remodeling following BFR strength training. This is a fascinating concept to consider when trying to provide a thorough robust rehab model and also provides consideration around including Blood Flow Restriction as a valuable addition to any rehab program. The Role of Inflammation and Immune Cells in Blood Flow Restriction Training Adaptation: A Review (Front Physiol. 2018; 9: 1376.) Authors: Fabrício Eduardo Rossi,1Marcelo Conrado de Freitas,2Nelo Eidy Zanchi,3Fábio Santos Lira,1,* and Jason M. Cholewa4 "How you do BFR" guest is Nicolai Morris. Nicolai is an Australian Strength and Conditioning Coach who works at Sydney University as the senior strength and conditioning coach working with multiple sports including swimming, athletics, rugby, rugby 7’s, water polo and soccer. Nicolai has been coaching as an S&C for 12 years working across private, schools, professional and university sport environments. Nicolai discusses how she uses BFR in her own training and competition as an elite swimmer as well as the different scenarios with her athletes that she trains. She is also very active on social media providing great insight into the great work that she does. Make sure you follow her as I am sure you will gain a lot from her.

Ep 12. Money for Jam - improve cycling performance with BFR. "How you do BFR" guest is Jordan Kerby

Hi there, Thanks for your patience in this episode. A recent trip to the USA has meant that i've had a lot of work to catch up on and hence this episode has been delayed a little. Today's episode is cycling strong but the concepts in both the article review and the interview with Jordan Kerby highlight how BFR can be used as a training enhancement tool. The article I review is called: The effect of 1 week of repeated ischaemic leg preconditioning on simulated Keirin cycling performance: a randomised trial. Lindsay, A., Petersen, C., Blackwell, G., Ferguson, H., Parker, G., Steyn, N., & Gieseg, S. P. (2017). BMJ open sport & exercise medicine, 3(1). Ischemic preconditioning involves a continuous cycle of BFR cuff inflation (3-5min) followed by deflation (2-3min) whilst sitting passively. Aside from this study showing positive effects in 30second cycling sprint performance, the amazing thing is that it requires the user to do nothing except inflate and deflate the cuffs - Money for Jam I reckon. In "How you do BFR" I interview elite cyclist and world champion Jordan Kerby. I am always appreciative of people's time but the time and information that Jordan gave in this interview is just amazing. I urge you to give this one time as what he is doing is reflective of an athlete who is really using all of his tools in the toolbox to maximise his performance. A little bit of information about Jordan: Bio: Has been in cycling both road and track for 14 years. Did 3 years professionally on the road. Along with winning a national u/23 championship. Switched to track endurance cycling as a preference and it suited his physiology better. World Champion in 2017 in the 4000m Individual Pursuit. Part of the team that won the 2018 Commonwealth Games team pursuit. Ambitions to go to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Outside of Competing: Been a commercial cycling coach since 2016. Having coached multiple state and national medallists as well as an Age Group Triathlon world champion. Currently studying a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport through Massey University. Career ambition to coach a High Performance track cycling team at a World Championship or Olympic level. Social Media Channels. Twitter;@JordanKerby Instagram;@jordankerby Website that you can see what I do from a coaching perspective. thepedaler.com.au Again a special thank you to Jordan for his time.

Ep 11. Heal achilles tendon injuries faster with BFR. "How you do BFR" guest is Alex Natera

Hi there, Rehabilitation of an achilles tendon can be lengthy and problematic. Today's episode looks at two case studies that used Blood Flow Restriction to accelerate the rehab process where "traditional" processes had previously failed. The article I review is: Blood flow restriction training after Achilles tendon rupture. The Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery, 57(3), 635-638.Yow, B. G., Tennent, D. J., Dowd, T. C., Loenneke, J. P., & Owens, J. G. (2018). In "how you do BFR" I interview Alex Natera who is strength and power coach for the GWS Giants AFL ("Aussie Rules"). Alex is well known for his isometric and eccentric work of recent time, but he delves into his journey of BFR. Aside from highlighting some very interesting case studies we also discuss the importance of how to engage athletes in type of training methodology. Alex regularly posts insightful and educational content on his social media so please give him a follow on the following platforms: Twitter: @alex_natera Instagram: @alex.natera Thanks again for listening.

Ep 10. Heal fractures faster with BFR. "How you do BFR" guest is Dr. Chris Brandner

Hi everyone, Before I get into today's podcast, I thought I'd take this opportunity to let you all know that my new shipment of upper body cuffs is not far away. So I thank you for your patience. Today's episode builds on episode 7 on the positive effects of BFR on bone reformation. This article review is a case study of a bodybuilder who had a lower body fracture and not only was able to continue training with BFR but also experienced an accelerate healing environment. Loenneke, J. P., Young, K. C., Wilson, J. M., & Andersen, J. C. (2013). Rehabilitation of an osteochondral fracture using blood flow restricted exercise: a case review. Journal of bodywork and movement therapies, 17(1), 42-45. In "How you do BFR" I interview Dr. Chris Brandner to discuss a variety of topics associated with Blood Flow Restriction. Chris did his PhD. in the area of BFR and he has seen quite an evolution over the last 10 years. He brings a wealth of academic and practical experience in this area so I am also honoured to have someone of his credentials on the podcast.

Hi everyone and Happy New Year. 2019 will be an exciting year which I feel will see the Sports Rehab Tourniquet continue to grow in the BFR space. Recently I have upgraded the carry box to an EVA Protective Case. A case will fit both your upper and lower body cuffs and pump. This is a much sturdier and portable solution to my original box. This is included in the normal price for all cuffs. You can also purchase the case separately if you feel this would be a valuable addition to protect and carry your original SRT cuffs. In today's podcast I answer a few questions that I get asked reasonably frequently. These are some fundamental concepts to applying BFR in a practical setting so I think you will get a lot out if. I enjoyed doing the Q&A segment so if you have any other questions that you would like to be answered please contact me through my website (www.sportsrehab.com.au) I also have Ed Lea from Harlequins Rugby Union on "How you do BFR."

This review discusses the mechanisms through which metabolic stress and immune cell recruitment may induce skeletal muscle remodeling following BFR strength training. This is a fascinating concept to consider when trying to provide a thorough robust rehab model and also provides consideration around including Blood Flow Restriction as a valuable addition to any rehab program.

Ep 12. Money for Jam - improve cycling performance with BFR. "How you do BFR" guest is Jordan Kerby

Hi there, Thanks for your patience in this episode. A recent trip to the USA has meant that i've had a lot of work to catch up on and hence this episode has been delayed a little. Today's episode is cycling strong but the concepts in both the article review and the interview with Jordan Kerby highlight how BFR can be used as a training enhancement tool. The article I review is called: The effect of 1 week of repeated ischaemic leg preconditioning on simulated Keirin cycling performance: a randomised trial. Lindsay, A., Petersen, C., Blackwell, G., Ferguson, H., Parker, G., Steyn, N., & Gieseg, S. P. (2017). BMJ open sport & exercise medicine, 3(1). Ischemic preconditioning involves a continuous cycle of BFR cuff inflation (3-5min) followed by deflation (2-3min) whilst sitting passively. Aside from this study showing positive effects in 30second cycling sprint performance, the amazing thing is that it requires the user to do nothing except inflate and deflate the cuffs - Money for Jam I reckon. In "How you do BFR" I interview elite cyclist and world champion Jordan Kerby. I am always appreciative of people's time but the time and information that Jordan gave in this interview is just amazing. I urge you to give this one time as what he is doing is reflective of an athlete who is really using all of his tools in the toolbox to maximise his performance. A little bit of information about Jordan: Bio: Has been in cycling both road and track for 14 years. Did 3 years professionally on the road. Along with winning a national u/23 championship. Switched to track endurance cycling as a preference and it suited his physiology better. World Champion in 2017 in the 4000m Individual Pursuit. Part of the team that won the 2018 Commonwealth Games team pursuit. Ambitions to go to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. Outside of Competing: Been a commercial cycling coach since 2016. Having coached multiple state and national medallists as well as an Age Group Triathlon world champion. Currently studying a Bachelor of Exercise and Sport through Massey University. Career ambition to coach a High Performance track cycling team at a World Championship or Olympic level. Social Media Channels. Twitter;@JordanKerby Instagram;@jordankerby Website that you can see what I do from a coaching perspective. thepedaler.com.au Again a special thank you to Jordan for his time.

Ep 11. Heal achilles tendon injuries faster with BFR. "How you do BFR" guest is Alex Natera

Hi there, Rehabilitation of an achilles tendon can be lengthy and problematic. Today's episode looks at two case studies that used Blood Flow Restriction to accelerate the rehab process where "traditional" processes had previously failed. The article I review is: Blood flow restriction training after Achilles tendon rupture. The Journal of Foot and Ankle Surgery, 57(3), 635-638.Yow, B. G., Tennent, D. J., Dowd, T. C., Loenneke, J. P., & Owens, J. G. (2018). In "how you do BFR" I interview Alex Natera who is strength and power coach for the GWS Giants AFL ("Aussie Rules"). Alex is well known for his isometric and eccentric work of recent time, but he delves into his journey of BFR. Aside from highlighting some very interesting case studies we also discuss the importance of how to engage athletes in type of training methodology. Alex regularly posts insightful and educational content on his social media so please give him a follow on the following platforms: Twitter: @alex_natera Instagram: @alex.natera Thanks again for listening.

Ep 10. Heal fractures faster with BFR. "How you do BFR" guest is Dr. Chris Brandner

Hi everyone, Before I get into today's podcast, I thought I'd take this opportunity to let you all know that my new shipment of upper body cuffs is not far away. So I thank you for your patience. Today's episode builds on episode 7 on the positive effects of BFR on bone reformation. This article review is a case study of a bodybuilder who had a lower body fracture and not only was able to continue training with BFR but also experienced an accelerate healing environment. Loenneke, J. P., Young, K. C., Wilson, J. M., & Andersen, J. C. (2013). Rehabilitation of an osteochondral fracture using blood flow restricted exercise: a case review. Journal of bodywork and movement therapies, 17(1), 42-45. In "How you do BFR" I interview Dr. Chris Brandner to discuss a variety of topics associated with Blood Flow Restriction. Chris did his PhD. in the area of BFR and he has seen quite an evolution over the last 10 years. He brings a wealth of academic and practical experience in this area so I am also honoured to have someone of his credentials on the podcast. If you want to get in touch with Chris, his best social media contacts are: Twitter:@ChrisBrandner Instagram:@chris.brandner If you want to purchase a set of BFR cuffs I have my own brand - Sports Rehab Tourniquet and you buy them at www.sportsrehab.com.au. I also have lots of information and videos on my various social media channels: Twitter:@chrisgaviglio Instagram:@chrisgaviglio YouTube:SportsRehabAUS Thanks for listening.

Ep 9. How to implement BFR in a professional rugby club. "How you do BFR" guest is Ed Lea. Also your BFR questions are answered

Hi everyone and Happy New Year. 2019 will be an exciting year which I feel will see the Sports Rehab Tourniquet continue to grow in the BFR space. Recently I have upgraded the carry box to an EVA Protective Case. A case will fit both your upper and lower body cuffs and pump. This is a much sturdier and portable solution to my original box. This is included in the normal price for all cuffs. You can also purchase the case separately if you feel this would be a valuable addition to protect and carry your original SRT cuffs. In today's podcast I answer a few questions that I get asked reasonably frequently. These are some fundamental concepts to applying BFR in a practical setting so I think you will get a lot out if. I enjoyed doing the Q&A segment so if you have any other questions that you would like to be answered please contact me through my website (www.sportsrehab.com.au) I also have Ed Lea from Harlequins Rugby Union on "How you do BFR." Harlequins Rugby Union club are a profes...

Ep 8."The hips don't lie." BFR Sprinting - an untapped training method? "How you do BFR" guest is Joseph Coyne

Hi everyone, Today's podcast title is from a well known line from a song by the artist Shakira - "the hips don't lie" which was a line from my guest today, Joseph Coyne. Joseph is an S&C and sprints coach. He has a wealth of experience around the world and is a very knowledge coach in a host of different areas related to performance enhancement (aside from just S&C). He has worked in elite sport and played an integral role with athletes such as Sonny Bill Williams, Ky Hurst, Stephen Hoiles and a number of truly elite Chinese Olympians. I had a fantastic conversation about not only how he implements BFR on himself and his athletes but I also got to listen to some of the other work that he does. This short bio doesn't do him justice so really encourage you to give it a listen and reach out to him. Just fascinating. Today's article review looks at the concept of BFR sprinting and how this may improve performance. The article is:Low-Intensity Sprint Training With Blood Flow Restriction ...
