Several weeks ago I read an awesome story from a previous podcast guest. You might know her if you watch a little tv station called ESPN. The guest, Stephania Bell, told us about her upcoming baseball spring training tour and then she mentioned blood flow restriction training (click here if you want need a refresher). I already had an idea about blood flow restriction training (BFR from now on because I don’t feel like typing it out every time!) from this article written by Stephania. Naturally, I had to ask her about BFR and the article. She summarized it well and mentioned “you need to talk to Johnny Owens.”

So I reached out to Johnny and he agreed to be a guest on the Therapy Insiders podcast (which is below). Johnny is a smart guy that is excited about the potential of BFR and rightfully so based on the success he has had thus far with it. I don’t blame him. If you could improve the rehabilitation process for a lot of people while minimizing overall stress on their body, wouldn’t you? Yea, me too.

Now a lot of you are probably asking right now how does this work? What is the science behind this? Who is this Johnny character? Can I try this out? Is he really going to keep asking questions for the rest of this blog? Well the answers to all those questions and more is in the podcast. So get your tourniquets ready (please don’t) and enjoy the podcast!
