One Harmonic Motion and B Strong Training Systems have teamed up to provide a unique opportunity to members of the Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM) community.  Blood flow restriction training has been shown in the research to be beneficial to those diagnosed with this inflammatory muscle disease that is characterized by progressive muscle wasting.

We are personally seeing excellent individual results as well with implementing B Strong BFR into regular exercise programs for those who have IBM. This type of training allows individuals with IBM to get the benefits that are typically associated with lifting heavy weights while minimizing muscle damage by using lighter loads combined with with B Strong.   Additional benefits are discussed here.

In light of these findings, B Strong and One Harmonic Motion are looking for eight more individuals who have been diagnosed with IBM to join a guided training group over two months.

As a part of enrolling in the training group, you will receive an Individual B Strong Training System to trial, be provided with two months of guided training written by a physical therapist, and an opportunity to try out this training method.
