BFR - Pain Relief, Performance training and a World Record with Jacinta Carroll
I hope everyone is doing well. With the current COVID-19 situation we are all in, I feel that BFR is placed really well for everyone irrespective of whether you are performing injury rehab or training for elite athletic performance. There is a lot of evidence that it is a great training tool is both of these scenarios.
This brings me to today's episode and it is over 12 months in the making. I get straight into "How you do BFR" with Jacinta Carroll. She brings a fantastic story and has multiple stories of how to use it in both an injury and performance sporting environment. I feel words don't do her justice to her CV but aside from being an elite athlete in two sports, a world record holder in one of them and a Physiotherapist, her interview is jam packed full of great applications of BFR.
A quick snapshot of her career so far:
- 4 x world champion in Waterski Jumping (Currently undefeated for the last 40 international pro tour stops).
- Ranked 2nd in the 59kg division got Olympic Weightlifting in Australia.
- Full time physiotherapist.
- Currently studying Masters of Sports Physiotherapy.
