In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I am speaking to Senior Strength and Conditioning Coach at the Queensland Academy of Sport, Chris Gaviglio. As well as his regular job, Chris is the creator of the Sports Rehab Tornequay and also the Strength and Conditioning Coach for the Queensland state of origin team. Clearly, Chris is an incredibly busy man so it was a pleasure to sit down with him and talk blood flow restriction (BFR) training. With more BFR devices on the market and its application spanning wider than just an arm pump and rehabilitation, I thought it was time to get an expert on, and Chris is definitely that.
