Owens Recovery Science Podcast: BFR & IPC for Performance, Rehab, and Health w/ Jamie Burr, PhD

04 May 2021

In this episode Johnny and Kyle chat with Dr. Jamie Burr, Director of the Human Performance & Health Research Laboratory at the University of Guelph. During this podcast we discuss Dr. Burr and his lab’s work centering on ischemic preconditioning, and blood flow restriction exercise and how it can be used to address the exercise needs of the elite level athlete to person’s managing chronic disease like diabetes. We’re certain you’ll enjoy this chat! Check out the full podcast here.
