Joining Ben today is Dr. Jeremy Loenneke, assistant professor of Health, Exercise Science & Recreation Management at The University of Mississippi. Ben and Jeremy dive deep on blood flow restriction training, the most common myths of strength and hypertrophy training and how pro athletes will be training in the near future.


“Jeremy’s research focuses on skeletal muscle adaptations to exercise in combination with blood flow restriction. His recent work has answered several important methodological and safety questions with respect to applying blood flow restriction. Dr. Loenneke is a member of the American College of Sports Medicine and the American Physiological Society. He also serves as a peer reviewer for several journals including Sports Medicine, AGE, Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise, and the Journal of Applied Physiology.”
