Great time teaching SMART Tools Level 1 Course at Athens, GA this weekend. They all tried to teach me some southern twang and i did not succeed 😂😂. Huge thanks to Piedmont Rehab for the hospitality. @smarttoolsusa #iastm #continuingeducation #physicaltherapy #manualtherapy

Day 2 of our Level 1 #iastm #iastmtools in Carson City, NV with @active_perform_chiro
・・・
Another weekend getting after teaching @smarttoolsusa Level 1 IASTM course. This company continues to push some of the best material out there including their new BFR course.

Love my job!

BLOOD FLOW RESTRICTION - LOAD/OCCLUSION RELATIONSHIPS...
Improved muscle mass and strength have been a tried and true benefit of chronic usage of low-load blood flow restriction exercise. However, there remains considerable questions regarding optimal use of load (as a percentage of 1RM) and pressure (40-80% arterial occlusive pressure) to maximize hypertrophy and strength responses.This study investigated the degree to which load and intensity play in chronic BFR training.
🔸🔸
Twenty-six untrained males (~27 y.o) were randomly assigned to leg extensions in two of five conditions using either leg: BFR with 20%/40% 1RM, 40%/80% arterial occlusion, or 80% 1 RM without BFR for 12 weeks (twice per week training). BFR was set using a blood pressure cuff (9.2 cm wide) and for the first two weeks 2 sets of 15 per leg were used and afterwards for the remainder 3 sets of 15 were used (except for 80% 1 RM condition where 10 reps were used) with 60 second rest intervals.
🔸🔸
Outcome measures included muscle cross-sectional area (as assessed by MRI) and muscle strength (as assessed by 1RM).
🔸🔸
Results show increases in muscle cross-sectional area were greater when higher loads were used (20% vs. 40% 1RM) with the same occlusive pressure, with higher loading protocols producing similar hypertrophy to high load training (80%1RM, no occlusion). Lower loading protocols (20%1RM) seems to require higher pressures (80%) for significant increases in muscle cross-sectional area compared to high intensity training (80% 1RM). Strength increases in all BFR groups were less than those observed with 80% 1RM, regardless of loading or occlusive pressures. There appears to be no additional benefit in increasing pressure when higher loads are used.
