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 workouts smarter, speeds 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 train. To do this with minimal effort he utilised the Hytro BFR Tee and Shorts as they have “adjustable straps in the upper arms and legs, allowing wearers to safely administer the correct pressure at home or in the gym”.
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 that “you can just sit watching the TV with the shorts on”.
Dr Warren Bradley, the founder of Hytro, joined Max Solomon of the Science for Sport Podcast to discuss the use of Blood Flow Restriction in elite sport. Dr Warren talks all about BFR, the science behind it and more.
After sustaining a back injury, professional rugby league player Charlie Willett was ruled out of the 2020/21 season. This year she has had to learn how to shift her mindset and practices to recover effectively with BFR and perform at her best.
