How does BFR work?
By partially limiting blood flow to working muscles, chemical changes occur that mimic what happens during the most intense exercise sessions. These changes are real and lead to measurable adaptations in strength, endurance and many other training responses, but at a fraction of the mechanical load that would normally be required. For joints and muscles that are recovering from injuries and imbalances, this is a huge advantage- we keep those tissues safe while still making dramatic improvements.
what does a BFR training session look like?
a typical blood flow restriction session
After a prescreening health survey, cuffs are placed on your upper arm or leg depending on your goals.
Our SmartTools Cuffs use doppler to measure your blood flow while calibrating. This ensures you’ll be performing your exercise consistently at the chosen pressure which is usually between 50 to 80% occlusion, based on your goals and health.
Our H+ cuffs utilize a simpler mechanism but allow for greater mobility during exercise.
Once we have the cuffs calibrated, it’s time to get moving! We’ll perform between 1 and 4 different exercises with the cuffs inflated. Each exercise is done to fatigue over the course of 4 sets.
After your session you may have some fatigue as if you’ve had a great workout (which you have!). It’s time to plan your next session.
