BFR is one of the newer training techniques to hit the rehab and sports performance worlds and is also being recognized as a potent training method for aging baby boomers. By restricting venous return of blood flow with safe, elastic B Strong Bands, the body is tricked into thinking it is working harder, which produces amazing physiological results. Join us to learn what B Strong training is all about, get hands-on experience from the leading BFR authority, Jim Stray-Gundersen, MD, in how to implement it, and understand how it can lead to better health and wellness for all ages and fitness levels.
