62 Full Occlusion with Walking...Safer than the Water in Mexico

When Johnny's indisposed the podcast gets hijacked by Kyle, Zac and Ben. Johnny's loss is your win essentially. In this episode we discuss two recent papers that further help to elucidate the efficacy and effectiveness of BFR in combination with aerobic exercise. Here are the two papers we reviewed:

Smith, N. D. W., Girard, O., Scott, B. R., & Peiffer, J. J. (2024). A comparison of physiological and perceptual responses to fixed‐power and perceptually regulated cycling with and without blood flow restriction in trained cyclists. European Journal of Sport Science: EJSS: Official Journal of the European College of Sport Science. doi.org/10.1002/ejsc.12068

Thompson, K. M. A., Gamble, A. S. D., Kontro, H., Lee, J. B., & Burr, J. F. (2023). Low- and high-volume blood-flow restriction treadmill walking both improve maximal aerobic capacity independently of blood volume. Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports. doi.org/10.1111/sms.14534
