An easy-to-use training tool, proven by Elite Sports, to deliver simple and practical BFR for the enhanced recovery and performance of all Athletes.

What is BFR?

Simply put, Blood Flow Restriction (BFR) involves safely trapping blood in the muscles while recovering post workout or performing exercise at a very low intensity.

The restricted muscles fill with blood and become swollen and stressed, making exercise significantly harder and forcing the body to adapt.

How the body adapts depends on the BFR protocol performed, dramatically enhancing Recovery effectiveness, and is proven in Training to improve muscle growth and increase endurance.   Learn more

How it works

Oxygenated blood flows into the muscle while BFR straps restrict the return flow of deoxygenated blood., causing it to pool in the muscle.

As the muscles swell with blood they become hypoxic (low oxygen), meanwhile, lactic acid builds up causing stress. This causes a strong adaptive response by the body especially Recovery and muscle growth hormone production, as well as increased muscle fibre activation.

Upon release of the restriction, a powerful flush of blood removes waste and inflammation from the muscles and joints to support faster Recovery. The effectiveness of exercise is magnified by BFR, allowing large performance gains to be made in very short periods of time
