Owens Recovery Science Podcast: Luke Hughes, PhD

21 October 2021

In this episode Luke Hughes, PhD aka the Drake of BFR returns to discuss his recent paper titled “Aerobic exercise with blood flow restriction causes local and systemic hypoalgesia and increases circulating opioid and endocannabinoid levels”. This study followed similar methods to his previous work in terms of outcome measures and its general design. Check out the full podcast here. Give it a listen and let us know what you think.
