BFR training Tag

If you're in any which way connected to the rehabilitation, sports medicine, or athletic performance worlds, you've probably heard the word "blood flow restriction" or "BFR" at some point. A growing body of evidence now supports the use of using blood flow restriction combined with low-load resistance training to enhance hypertrophic and strength responses in skeletal muscles. Blood flow restriction training utilizes the application of an inflatable pneumatic cuffย or wraps around a limb to limit the amount ofย blood flowย available to the exercising muscle. The goal is to fully occlude venous blood flow out of the exercising limb and restrict a certain percentage of blood flow into the exercising limb.ย
