Gustavo Vaz Tostes talks Blood Flow Restriction with the Red Bulletin

Gustavo Vaz Tostes, CrossFit expert and Head of Training at WIT Fitness in London, speaks to the Red Bulletin about Blood Flow Restriction and how he utilises it to boost his training.

Gustavo Vaz Tostes explains how BFR Training has helped him make his CrossFit workouts smarter, speed up his recovery between training days, and how safe and easy Hytro BFR wearables are to use.

When Vaz Tostes had less time to train, he looked for an answer and found Blood Flow Restriction Training to be a more effective way to continue to enhance his CrossFit performance. To do this with minimal effort he utilised the Hytro BFR Performance Shorts and Training Tee as they have in-built “adjustable straps in the upper arms and legs, allowing wearers to safely administer the correct pressure at home or in the gym”. Blood Flow Restriction improves performance through increasing the difficulty of any exercise or recovery protocol performed, driving quicker and more effective adaptations, such as strength, endurance, and recovery.

Not only does Vaz Tostes use Hytro BFR wearables when training, but recognises the power of Passive BFR for recovery. He said “Applying pressure then reducing it speeds up recovery between workouts” and shared how simple it is to implement into everyday life as “you can just sit watching the TV with the shorts on”.
