Blood Flow Restriction Training Systems
Evidence-based Full Body Workouts with Proven Results

"BFR is a game changer in the world of fitness training and rehab, it's the biggest thing to happen in the last 20 years."

What if you could work out for 20 minutes or less at less than 25% max effort and produce similar strength, speed and endurance gains to a high intensity hour-long workout at over 75% max effort? Sound too good to be true?  Studies show that BFR training works

What is Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) Training?

BFR training is a fitness and rehab strategy involving cuffs or bands that safely restrict venous blood flow from a working muscle, while allowing arterial blood flow to that working muscle, typically during low intensity resistance training.  Since the ability of that blood to escape is dramatically reduced, metabolic stress and cellular swelling are greatly increased.  As a result, increased growth hormone, muscle hypertrophy and muscle strength occur.

 

BFR is a scientifically-proven training method that will also:

  • Increase Type II (Fast-twitch) muscle fiber recruitment for greater potential for strength, speed and hypertrophy

  • Increase local growth hormone and IGF-1 concentrations by 200-300%

  • Enhance stimulation of muscle protein synthesis by 45-55% leading to greater potential for growth and development during exercise

  • Pose no greater health risk than traditional exercise, and in fact reduced joint and tissue damage

 

What are the benefits?

  • Increased muscle size and muscle strength

  • Increased cardiovascular capacity

  • Decreased joint/tissue stress

  • Little to no muscle damage

  • Little to no recovery needed

  • Little to no soreness or delayed onset muscular soreness (DOMS)

  • Low intensity needed (resistance or cardio)

 

Who can benefit from this cutting-edge BFR training?

  • Anyone looking to add a strength training technique to improve muscle size  (hypertrophy), strength and tone

  • Athletes looking to reduce wear-and-tear on the joints and muscles 

  • Weekend warriors with a desire to play the sport(s) they love and minimal time for additional training
