Symptomatic knee osteoarthritis is a condition that nearly everyone reading this article can relate to – either on a personal or professional level. Functionally, knee osteoarthritis is characterized by a loss of knee range of motion, pain during exercise and decreased ability to perform activities of daily living such as walking, climbing up/down stairs and getting up out of a chair.  A lack of quadriceps strength has been linked to not only a risk factor

Many people wonder how blood flow restriction can be so effective at loads as light as 20-40% 1 RM in producing similar gains in muscle mass and (to a lesser extent) strength as heavier load (60-70+% 1RM) protocols. It all comes down to understanding three main concepts: the force-velocity (FV) curve, fatigue and the effect of fatigue on muscle activation patterns. As we introduce our blog to the fitness and rehab community, the BFR Pros
