What is BFR?

Blood Flow Restriction is a technique that combines low intensity exercise with blood flow occlusion that produces similar results to high intensity exercise. An environment is created that promotes muscle growth and strength gains by inducing metabolic stress and muscle fatigue similar to what is experienced during high intensity exercise, but with the use of lighter loads. This stimulates the release of muscle growth factors such as insulin growth factors (IGF) which enhance muscle protein synthesis. Resulting in hypertrophy and strength of our muscular system.

Benefits of BFR:

  • Increased muscle size
  • Increased muscle strength
  • Increased cardiovascular capacity
  • Increased growth hormone and insulin growth factor
  • Decreased joint and tissue stress
  • Little to no muscular damage
