Owens Recovery Science Podcast: Lee Winchester, PhD

02 September 2021

In this episode Johnny and Kyle chat with Dr. Lee Winchester about his BFR research. We discuss his recent paper in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research and we talk somewhat in-depth about muscle damage.

Lee Winchester, PhD is an assistant professor of exercise science at the University of Alabama. His research interests include 1) the potential synergy between BFR and high-intensity resistance exercise, 2) the influence of exercise training in the cold on performance and mechanisms of adaptation, and 3) how school/classroom policy impacts classroom teacher cardiovascular and renal health.
