In this episode, I talk with Dr. Jeremy Loenneke. Dr. Loenneke, an expert in the field of Blood Flow Restriction research, explains the basics of Blood Flow Restriction, how/where/when to fit BFR into your training, and how BFR can benefit athletes of all types. He also gives us some practical advice for how to approach disagreements. Dr. Loenneke is an Assistant Professor of Exercise Science at The University of Mississippi within the School of Applied Sciences. He received his MS in Nutrition and Exercise Science from Southeast Missouri State University and his PhD in Exercise Physiology from the University of Oklahoma. He is the director of the Kevser Ermin Applied Physiology Laboratory and his research group’s primary focus is on skeletal muscle adaptations to exercise with and without the application of blood flow restriction. Dr. Loenneke is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and a member of the American Physiological Society. He currently serves on the editorial board for Sports Medicine, PLOS One, and the Journal of Trainology.
