Aug 16, 2018

Blood flow restriction training, also known as occlusion training/BFR, has become increasingly popular in the fitness industry. Today's show features Kusha Karvandi, the man behind BFR Bands. Kusha has an extensive background as a trainer (over 10,000 hours with clients and over 20 nationally recognized certifications) and he also has a unique perspective given his knowledge of neurology. Today's episode is rich with knowledge from Kusha, including:

-What does "functional neurology" even mean?

-Why proprioception isn't the only signal we should be considering  when it comes to our training

-The importance of your vestibular system and vision, and how those may help you upgrade your training to the next level

-Easy exercises to start implementing into your training to improve your vestibular and visual acuity

-What blood flow restriction training (BFR) is and how it came about

-How to properly program BFR (band tightness, volume, load)

-Who BFR is and isn't appropriate for 

-...So much more!

And as a thank you to everyone who listens to the show, you can use the code "EMILY" to save 15% on your BFR bands!

Today's episode of EMBody Radio is brought to you by Four Sigmatic. Four Sigmatic provides the best in adaptogenic/therapeutic mushroom products. You’ve seen me post about this stuff on Instagram and IG stories all the time, and I wanted to take a sec to tell you a little more about them today. I started using them because I love adaptogens, and many of their mushroom products are just that – adaptogens. Adaptogens basically help you respond better to physical and emotional stress. I run a business, run multiple social media platforms that tie into my business, I’m a student, and I have a life outside of all that that I’m trying to live, so stress management is key. Mushrooms can also be used to help everything from your gut health to your skin.

My favorites are the Lion's Mane Mushroom Elixir and the Mushroom Hot Cacao with Reishi... Be sure to listen to the whole episode to learn why ;). If you want to try Four Sigmatic products, use the code "EMDUNC" to get 15% off your order at
