Chris Duffin: Getting Comfortable With Feeling Uncomfortable, Muscle Growth, and Blood Flow Restriction

29 Apr 2021

From "The Align Podcast"

What did you learn from the challenges you surpassed? Do you think that self-confidence is key to “winning” or thriving in life?   In this episode of the Align Podcast, Chris Duffin and I chat about the challenging and uncomfortable situations that we may face in our lives and how surpassing those is the only way for us to grow both mentally, but physically too. In fact, the same can be said about your muscles.   We also talk about Chris’ impressive training techniques that have been tested and clinically proven to get the results most people are looking for when weight lifting, but with less weight and less training time. Known as the BFR (blood flow restriction) method, this allows your body to actively flush your body’s toxins and forces both lymphatic and blood drainage. In fact, this method reduces the blood flow in your body to an area, provoking deep muscle fatigue sooner. This causes hypertrophy, which is an increase and growth of your muscle.
