Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training has recently had a lot of publicity as a training tool to assist with accelerating gains in strength and hypertrophy whilst only using low loads. Consequently, this is seen as a great tool in the injury rehabilitation setting.  The concept of BFR training originated out of Japan in the 1960’s and was called KAATSU. In Japan, KAATSU training is a well-researched and training methodology with a high level of acceptance in the wider community. However, there still appears to be many misconceptions about its use and safety. Therefore, this presentation will be a summary of the available BFR and KAATSU literature to give you a basic understanding of Blood Flow Restriction. The presentation will have three main themes. The first section will highlight the basics of BFR, including the mechanisms and principles behind BFR. The second section will discuss contraindications and considerations around BFR use. The last section will highlight how to use and apply BFR across a spectrum of multiple scenarios that include improving recovery, physiology, tendon/joint pain and bone reformation. Due to the wealth of information, this presentation will be an overview and give you an understanding of what can be done with BFR. In addition, this presentation will also highlight interesting and real-world case studies.  Chris brings over 10 years of BFR experience to this presentation and will leave you with an understanding of what BFR can do for your clients and how you could incorporate it into your own practice.
