ITS TIME TO START TRAINING SMART.
Compelling evidence suggests that venous blood flow restriction dramatically increases muscle growth and strength by increasing growth hormone secretion, reducing myostatin and inducing cell swelling — all while circumventing the tissue damage that can occur with traditional high-intensity weight training. Occlusion training, also known as blood flow restriction training, or BFR, involves partially restricting blood flow to a muscle group. While this might sound potentially very dangerous, unless you have pre-existing underlying issues with blood pressure and circulation, there really is no risk.
2x Bands Included. Available in 3 different coloursways and one band fits both the Arm and Leg.
Tips on how to apply the right pressure of your BfR straps:
- Correct pressure is 5-7 out of 10 (0 = no blood flow restriction and 10 = fully restricted blood flow).
- Press down with one finger in the palm of your hand. Correct pressure will result in your skin changing colour from white to normal skin colour in max 2 seconds.
- Use the number of repetitions as a guide to adjust the pressure. A correct pressure should allow you to do 30 / 15 / 15 / 15 repetitions in each set in your first exercise. If this is not possible, you should either release some of the pressure of your BfR straps or use less weight.
- Correct pressure should not cause any tingling or numbness in the occluded limbs.
