Owens Recovery Science Podcast: Comparing Low Load BFR to Heavy Load Strength Training

In this episode the fellas discuss a recent paper in the Scandinavian Journal of Medicine & Science in Sports. The paper did a really nice job of refining the work of other authors to remove some bias and give a nice picture of what has been shown thus far as it pertains to the comparison of BFR w/ light weigh to traditional strength training via heavy load. Check out the full podcast here.
