Would 100% Recommend!


"I chose to take The BFR Pros' blood flow restriction course over other companies such as Owens Recovery Science & Smart Tools because of how the former is continually staying up-to-date with emerging BFR research and implementing it into the course. I found the course material to be extremely thorough, ranging from topics such as exercise physiology & hypertrophy science to various clinical applications of blood flow restriction. I felt 100% confident in implementing the course’s teachings on Monday morning with my patients. Would 100% recommend."

Understanding of when BFR is best


"The BFR Pros course led by Dr. Nicholas Rolnick was excellent. It helped me to gain a sound knowledge base for implementing Blood Flow Restriction in the clinic and the understanding of when BFR can be best utilized for optimal outcomes."

Primary Mechanisms of BFR Training 

This module covers the likely primary mechanisms behind why BFR training is so effective in building muscle and creating whole-body responses.

BFR Safety

This module is all about safety and how the whole body responses affect certain populations that may be at a higher risk using BFR training above and beyond what you would normally expect in healthy individuals.

Pillar 1 | Cell Swelling / IPC

This module covers pillar 1, cell swelling and ischemic pre- and post-conditioning. This module can help in not only augmenting performance in athletes, but minimizing the negative effects of disuse atrophy in our rehab populations.
