Blood Flow Restriction

Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) training is a training strategy involving the use of cuffs or wraps placed around a limb during exercise, to maintin arterial inflow to the muscle while preventing venous return.

What is Blood Flow Restriction (BFR)

BFR uses a specialized tourniquet system to limit arterial inflow and occlude venous outflow of an exercising limb. The hypoxic environment created, stimulates strength and hypertrophy gains at a much lighter load.

It is a noninvasive approach for all patients who would be a candidate for surgical procedures involving a tourniquet.

RESULTS WITH BFR

- Diminish atrophy and loss of strength from disuse and non-weight bearing after injuries

- Increase strength with only 30% loads of one rep max

- Gain/Induce hypertrophy with only 30% loads

- Improve muscle endurance in 1/3 the time

- Improve muscle protein synthesis in the elderly

- Improve strength and hypertrophy after surgery 

- Improve muscle activation 

- Increase growth hormone secretion
