In this video, we’re going to teach you how you can use Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) to accelerate your rehab and recovery from common lower-body injuries including Achilles tendon pain, Patellar tendon pain, and Hamstring strains.
Blood flow restriction training is an exercise modality that involves using a calibrated cuff to occlude venous blood flow out of a limb while restricting arterial blood flow into a limb. A growing body of evidence now supports the use of blood flow restriction at rest, combined with aerobic training, or combined with low-load resistance training to mitigate the negative effects of injury while enhancing skeletal muscle health.
The three of us have been practicing with BFR for a few years now and it has completely changed the game of rehab as we know it. This is one of the most versatile and effective tools when it comes to managing injuries, rehabbing after surgery, or supplementing a training program. The best part is with technological advances, this modality is becoming increasingly more available to the general public! We are showing off the new gen 3 cuff by Smart Tools in this video, which now makes BFR accessible and easy to use by the average person!
