Blood Flow Restriction Training

schedule a bfr training session now

With BFR (Blood Flow Restriction) training, you can achieve measurable and lasting training results at a significantly less load, allowing you to safely rehab, recover or remediate injuries and imbalances in your body.

a typical blood flow restriction session

getting started

After a prescreening health survey, cuffs are placed on your upper arm or leg depending on your goals.

calibration

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.

exercise time

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.

that’s it!

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.
