Blood Flow Restriction Training: A Little Known Secret

Blood Flow Restriction Training: A Little Known Secret

In the gym world, blood flow is believed to be one of the key drivers of muscle growth. There are whole programs designed around increasing blood flow to muscles and a myriad of supplements aimed at doing the same. This is where throwing around a term like blood flow restriction (BFR) training gets people's defences up. But hear me out. Blood transports vital nutrients and oxygen crucial for our muscles to grow, so it's understandable to think at first utterance BFR sounds counterproductive. But what if I told you that restricting blood flow is a very useful technique for growing muscle and there...

How Chronic Pain Works

How Chronic Pain Works

Injuries and lifting go hand-in-hand. It's rare to find a seasoned gym goer who hasn't had an injury. Often people are plagued with niggly injuries that cause them grief throughout their lives. Backs that just won't stop aching and sciatic nerve problems that flare up. Shoulders that click and pop and prevent people from doing the exercises they love or training to the best of their ability. They can also affect their personal lives, relationships and careers. A few years ago I bulged my L-5-S-1 disc moving a pallet. A year later, even picking up a 20kg weight plate and putting...

Mystical DOMS: Does It Make You Grow?

Mystical DOMS: Does It Make You Grow?

Delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS) is a sensation of myth and legend to anyone who works out. I am sure everyone has a tale of debilitating DOMS from when they first started training, did an especially brutal leg workout or went back to the Gym after a lengthy layoff. I remember one of my first squat workouts left me unable to function as a human being and perform simple, everyday tasks, like sit on the toilet. To many people, working out is all about chasing this soreness. It's commonly believed, among lifters, that DOMS is the best indicator of growth...

Or was I simply barking up the wrong tree, and should have...
