In past articles, we have discussed the science of Blood Flow Restriction Training and its many benefits. Here we would like to update you on how BStrong and MAD have taken their product and expertise to the high school, collegiate, and professional ranks.

With his son on one arm and his daughter on the other, BStrong Co-Founder and CEO Sean Whalen demonstrates that BStrong belts are not only effective for physical training but also parental training.

This past winter, MAD Head Coach Eric Bringas and BStrong Co-Founder and CEO Sean Whalen traveled to Benedictine University in Lisle, Illinois to attended TFC or Track Football Consortium. At this 2 day conference, Kris Korfist, the Director of Reflexive Performance and co-owner of Track Football Consortium was presenting his thoughts on the BStrong Belts. He introduced BStrong in his presentation and was very intrigued by the way he felt after using the belts.

Additionally, he was impressed with how BStrong is able to manipulate the physiology to induce the Growth Hormone response without employing any heavy resistance training. Following Kris’s lecture, Coach Bringas and CEO Whalen then lead a hands-on seminar explaining the science of BStrong, and also its practical application in a group training session.
