Ep. 77: Blood Flow Restriction (BFR)/John Duquette owner of Blue70

In this episode:

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) has been around for more than three decades but is only now becoming more widely known among endurance athletes. What is it? How does it work? Does it really offer benefits that make it something that triathletes and other endurance athletes should consider? I look at the science. Plus, a conversation with John Duquette the owner of Blue70 sports on the how and why of wetsuits for triathlon. Are they really that much faster? Am I better with sleeves or without and what about those floaty shorts?
